    You wish. That liberal elitist education probably just made you more blind to reality.
    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.

    I think both you need to relax with your mention of things like "class" and "Wikipedia" and "education". This is not the place for such things.

    Those classes should have shown you that the methods for conducting war are not designed by "civilian theorists".

    You know why that is? It's because were known for expecting everyone to act like Americans.
    IF any army came to the USA, to fix a problem that was threatening them in their country, which was emanating from here in the USA, and partially, as a result of the negligence of Americans to control this problem, not many Americans would expect (nor should they) those soldiers to conform to American cultural standards. They, like the American soldiers in Afghanistan, have one priority - staying alive, and completing their mission.

    Also, since Islam is an imperialist ideology which seeks to achieve world domination over all else, the last thing anybody should ever be doing, is conforming to it. Anywhere.

    I've never, nor would I ever, say that American soldiers should be asked to do anything which increases their chance of injury or death. However, I do feel all should be done that can be done safely. However, I think that all other things being equal to our situation in Afghanistan, any occupying force in America would get absolutely nowhere without becoming American first.

    Islam is as imperialist as Christianity for sure. The garb worn by Muslims throughout the world is rarely dictated by Islam, but is rather, a local cultural norm, and if you notice....isn't universal.

    There have been 20 averted terrorist attacks since 9/11 in the US. Just so you know.
