Comment: How could they "win"?

(See in situ)

How could they "win"?

There is no "winning" in Afghanistan. That was apparent from the start.
They didn't do anything to anybody. They were just invaded under a stupid pretense that they were "harboring OBL", without even any confirmation of it.
Bush says,"We think OBL is there, so we'll invade".
It was probably the most stupid thing ever. It destroyed any credibility for the US, if it even had any credibility left.

What would winning be?
Taking over the country?
Making it a puppet-state?
Killing all the Afghani people?
They can't even say what "winning" might even be.
They don't even know, or at least they can't say, because it's an ulteriorly evil imperial exploitation.
It is imbecilic and evil beyond belief.
