    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    Sounds more like "accurate explanation fail" to me.

    I'm okay with it, as long as the US doesn't end up landing 150'000 troops.

    Four Qatari jets currently reported to fly in Libyan airspace. Good to have an Arab nation join us.

    We might as well break camp and go home, then. A no-fly zone, by itself, isn't going to accomplish anything.

    Something like this, to be successful, has to have a long term committment. The Brits and the French can't carry on sustained long term operations that are needed here. Qatar sure as hell can't. They will find a jumping off point and leave the United States holding the bag. There's already alot more American involvement that we were told there was going to be and I'm sure that we'll become more and more involved in the coming weeks.
