    The intent of the post was very clear to me.

    That is not what I got out of it, but, it does not matter in any event.

    I have no problem with Obama apologizing for the incident, after all we're supposed to be partners in diplomacy with the new Afghan government, it was simply a gesture of good faith and to ensure him that no harm was intended. If the apology came after troops were killed by civilians, well that's another story..

    You don't have a 2 party system of government anymore, they're all Republicans! These Democrats abandoned the teacher unions, gave the Rich everything and kept all the Bush warmongering going.

    It is not 1992. So all this brainwashing in the media about abortion and Newt is the boogyman so we all have to line up like good little voters and vote Democrat to defeat the "evil" religious zealots is a smokescreen at best.

    You have to admit, that the Corp. Media and Talk Radio are always avoiding the war issues by substituting them with these bogus religion topics. The real issue the media should discuss is the wars themselves are bad policy.

    Okay...so what? Even if true, Korans were burned. The importance of the Koran isn't to Afghan Muslims alone.

    and... the Iranians stole one of our drones didn't you know that?
    They didn't "steal" it, and Iran is not Afghanistan.
    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.

    Oh look, someone resorting to insults because they got corrected for mistaking Afghanistan and Iran. Nice attitude one got there. Oh, and probably has terrible reading comprehension, from the looks of violating forum rules.
