    Just like Vietnam; the soldiers know they are fighting a useless war that they have no hope of winning :evil:

    No matter who the Prez is, the troops gotta' know that the Commander in Chief wants to win. It's obvious this CIC doesn't, he even said as much:
    "I'm Not Interested In Victory".

    Well, in all fairness, Obama does have more important priorities than Afghanistan, like pleading with the IOC for the Olympics and flipping the bird to the Dalai Lama

    I didn't see that thread until after I posted this one. I would not have a problem with a mod merging them and I don't think they'd wait for my approval regardless lol. ;)
