It's really a good question, but unless you count the Cold War, we haven't won a war since WWII. Korea was fought to a stalemate, and that regime is still in power and dangerous. We bailed out of Vietnam, which was an unmitigated disaster. When we fought the Gulf War, we only fought to the status quo. The aggressor was in power for another 12 years and the Islamofascists saw it as a win for them. In WWII, we had the will to fight war to its ultimate conclusion, holding nothing back and refusing to quit until our enemies begged us for mercy. Every news story that came about pointed out the good of our forces and what we did right. Even after such unmitigated disasters as Dunkirk and Market Garden, the news told of what our brave soldiers accomplished, despite the defeat. Stories of Dunkirk didn't concentrate on what had to be left behind, but rather how much was saved due to the dedication of every man, woman, and child with a watercraft to bring the British and French soldiers across the Channel. Stories of the Battle of the Bulge didn't talk about how the allied army got blind-sided and short-supplied in a winter operation. Instead, it talked about how the soldiers, undersupplied as they were, still held off the German counter-offensive, despite the odds against them. In the Pacific theatre, the news concentrated on the aggressiveness and efficiency of the Marines, not the fanaticism and determination of the enemy. There were several points in WWII when we were losing...bad, but instead of talk of surrender, we spoke only of redoubling our efforts until the war was ultimately won. In the Cold War, we were not afraid to identify our enemy and root him out. We executed spies. We arrested and jailed seditionists and traitors. We were not afraid to call one a communist and ostracize that person for betraying us to our enemies. With sheer determination, we fought Communism on every front, denied them resources, and did all we could to prevent it from gaining ground in our own country. In this war, however, gone is our determination. Having lost a fraction of what we lost at Normandy, fighting a far more dangerous enemy, we're ready to just give up and leave. With mass murderers and psychopaths walking around within our own borders, we refuse to call them out for fear that we'll be called 'racist,' 'bigot,' or 'intolerant.' We even bow to the wishes of organizations in this country known to give aid and comfort to our enemies (CAIR). To win this war against Islamic fascism, we must be ready to fight it to its bitter conclusion, no matter the cost. We must call out the enemies among us to prevent them from striking our soil (btw, Al-Qaida operatives are warning Muslims to get the hell out of America, no matter the cost, because it's about to get really bad). We have to drop the utopian ideal that nobody is evil and that everyone can be bargained with. In our current social condition, we will lose this war and it will cost us everything we have.
