    What does "winning" mean when it comes to what we are doing in Afghanistan?

    What do you think of the idea that we should turn towards fighting Al Queda in Afghanistan and Pakistan?

    What do you consider "nation building" and can it be effective?


    I'm curious - I'm at a crossroads in what I think regarding Afghanistan and Pakistan and would like to hear people's thoughts in something that is more than just a left/right bashing coversation...

    "Winning" means Emperor Hirohito signs the surrender documents on the USS Missouri.

    To me, the point of Afghanistan was to get OBL and Al Qaeda.

    Other than that, I don't really care if the whole counutry falls apart, to be perfectly frank.
