    We lost politically.
    They defeated South Vietnam on the battlefield. They would not have "won" had they not done that.

    "afghanistan is his war"

    Hey Prof tell me this? Do circumstances as they are PRESENTLY,today, now in Afghanistan exist because of a series of past events that led it there?

    OR.

    Does is the overall situation as it stands now, today, PRESENTLY due to future events?

    Not gonna re-fight the Vietnam War. If anyone can convince themselves that we didn't lose it politically....more power to you.

    few care about your beliefs, no matter how firm

    many, in contrast, concern themselves with obama's attitude

    he PROMISED triumph, he campaigned centrally on it

    he's on record---afghanistan is a matter of national security

    it's a war of necessity, he notes

    afghanistan is KILLING this president, politically

    don't blame me

    There is question I ask Prof...care to answer it? Perhaps somebody previously set it up purposely to work out like this for the next administraion and the United States?

    Possibly somebody named Dick?

    You can't even define triumph in terms that could be achieved realistically.

    It's because defeatests and spineless politicians, trying to play patty-cake with the war. No other reason.

    In 1968, the North Vietnames were ready to surrender, until that piece of **** Cronkite broadcast to the country that the war was unwinnable.
