    We won the battles in Vietnam and Iraq but we lost the wars. Looks like more of the same in Afghanistan.

    Normal is an illusion. What is normal to the spider is chaos to the fly.

    Yep... the mission wasn't clear, or it changed very soon after arriving. Late '01 and '02... we knew what we were there to do. After that, we lost our original direction. Now, we seem to be staying to prevent the vacum we've created from being filled by the enemy. We can't fight this war forever, eventually... Afghanistan will be returned to the Taliban. Mission, unaccomplished.

    If it doesn't fit, FORCE it! If it breaks then it needed to be replaced anyway.
