The same thing that defines winning in any other war for the past several thousand years of recorded history: the enemy suffer's such a defeat that he ceases all combat action. War aren't necessarily won, because two opposing sides sit down and sign a piece of paper.Jesus Christ. This war is not winnable, because it isn't a militarily feasible objective.
How would you define "winning" in this situation, Apdst? PLease give me the conditions that would need to be met in order to "win."
Winning, in this instance, will require literally changing the culture of Iraq. I don't believe that's possible, and it's certainly impossible for us to do.
If there's a god, damn it she won't mind.
If there's a god, baby she won't mind.
