    If we can't define what winning is, why are we there? Please no "war on terror" bullshit. There can be a war on terrorists, but the vague shit about a war on terror doesn't mean anything but more money in some folks pockets. Smedley Butler was right.

    After reading the article, I wonder what was Hoh's understanding of the war in Afghanistan was. It was always on the back burner of the Bush administration and was used as a cover to go into Iraq. Now a new administration has to try and make heads or tails of this mess. So, what do guys like Hoh want? And instant solution to the 7 year mess left by Bush/Cheney?

    I have always been of the position that if you can't define a winning exit strategy, you need to get the hell out.

    "Keeping the Peace" and "Winning the hearts and minds of the people" are vague and never achievable. I want to see set objectives and milestones of when they will be achieved. If we can't do that we need to get out of both Iraq and Afghanistan
