    We'll fix that, on the Iranian side.

    It was a glorious victory for sanity the day we left Saigon and Bagdad.
    We abandoned Vietnam and they folded. Nothing near that has happened in Iraq. We still have troops there, you know.

    btw, I don't think it was a glorious day for the South Vietnamese we left to the actions and punishments of the North.

    Yeah...you are right. It's better to make bad decisions...stick with them even though everyone knows they are bad...until you have no choice but to make a new decision and try to, somehow, spin the bad one to be...if not good, then not so bad. That's the liberal way. A prime example is the recent events in Libya.

    The way things are going just now, we just might find a way to lose that too.

    Now has that ever happened? Do you believe that every country is a failed state where the Taliban and Al Qaeda could reign supreme? Defeatists will always find defeat.

    What city has burned? I remember two buildings going down, I don't remember an entire city burning.
    You remember very poorly. How many cities can sustain 50-70 billion dollars worth of damage and survive?
    Have you heard of the new weapon introduced at the end of WWII? I have heard they can do quite a bit of damage.

    Try not to be melodramatic.
    Thank you for your advice.

    I will not convince you that your words betray the truth. Let's just part as friends.

    There is nothing I can say to this that I haven't already said. You believe afghanistan is so important that it requires the constant and ongoing shedding of american blood, as to not lose face. I take solace in the fact that the future will turn out as I have suggested, and not as you desire. We're leaving afghanistan, and that s***hole can burn to the ground for all I care. We have far more important things in america to worry about.
    Defeatists will always be defeated. Afghanistan is not so important. If the Taliban and Al qaeda were not there then we would have no reason to be there either. We fight the enemy where he is. You should know that.

    Do you know what a guerilla war is?*
    Enlighten me please.

    And on the whole denying safe havens to AQ part.
    I suppose you've never heard of Pakistan, Libya, Somalia, Yemen...
    We should go where are enemy is. We should kill him and break his things until he stops waging war against us. Did you think this was going to be easy?

    International Arms Trade is an interesting world. The profits that would be made from a war of forever out of international Govt's Contracts would be astronomical.
    It seems you know as little about business as you do about war.

    You have to wonder what there is to win in a Desert?
    One has to wonder where all the defeatists come from. Is your life so dear that you would purchase it with Sharia chains?
