    I dunno it's like they added an extra word before it so it's like... a different type. I thought folks in the military were abstractly or directly aware of this by observation or by the chain of command having been informed by civilian theorists.

    Having been informed by civilian theorists?

    As has been pointed out to you, not everyone in Afghanistan is Taliban....what we're trying to do is to get the locals on our side to help us fight the Taliban, rather than pissing on them and making them JOIN the Taliban. Even you can see that....it's not too complicated.

    You probably buy into the "limited war" theory too.

    No, wal-mart....we've been doing it far longer than that...and with few exceptions it is one of the most successful tactics the USA has ever employed. History, wal-mart...read a book.

    Limited war is not a theory...
    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.
