Bit of a surprise (if you believe those CNN polls)...<br>"On the issues, voters now think Obama would better handle the war in Iraq than McCain, 51 percent to 46 percent." <br><br>Just a few weeks (days?) ago, things looked a lot better on this issue for McCain.<br><br>[color:blue][/b]Hodie mihi. Cras tibi.</font color=blue>[/b]
The surge is working thus victory is nigh might be wearing thin. Neither John nor Sarah explain what victory would look like. Obama knows what it will look like. With American troops at home.<br><br><br><br><br><br><br>
AHA -- The White Flag of Surrender! A hockey puck upon you.<br><br>I don't know if his Oness really knows what "victory" looks like either. But our troops home is still a win if not a victory. Sometimes it's more important to know when to fold 'em. I'll give him that much.<br><br>
If the surge is working.....let's come home. Victory with terrorists is not possible. It's an eternal war. <br><br>Too many lives they've spent across the ocean. Too much money been spent upon the moon. Well, until they make it right, I hope they never sleep at night. They better make some changes and do it soon. -Things Goin' On/Lynyrd Skynyrd

The thing about this damned war is that it's the obverse of Clausewitz's statement that "War is diplomacy by another means." What I mean is that the objective of war is always the end of hostilities, and the end of hostilities in anything other than "total war," such as in WW I and WW II, has to be a political/diplomatic settlement of some sort. The world wars were different because they were so total that the end of hostilities could come only via the complete destruction of the enemy. But we can't do that when the enemy is "terrorism." We can't obliterate terrorism any more than we can obliterate hatred. Not by warfare, at any rate. We can, however, work towards a political accommodation that addresses the causes of terrorism. And that requires diplomacy, not war. <br><br>[color:red]</font color=red> [color:orange]</font color=orange> [color:yellow]</font color=yellow> [color:green]</font color=green> [color:blue]</font color=blue> [color:purple]</font color=purple>
