Open your eyes and your mind it's much more than Iraq & Afghanistan.

Did you know we are still in Japan & Germany.

A piece of the action would help, but not enough to allay the carnage and myriad problems we will face for generations because of this blunder. But I've said it before, and I'll say it again -- just pay my share, and I'll gladly STFU.

What are the criteria that defines a win? So far, all of the answers that I have seen by the WH have shown that we have a war that can only have an ambiguous ending, nothing on which to declare a win.

If you will define the criteria for a win, we can answer your question.

Do you want us to stay in Iraq? Let me rephrase, do you think the Iraqis want us to stay? Right now that purple finger you kept bringing up everytime you try to make a point that we are deploying some sort of democracy is turning brown.

Win what? What is it exactly that we need over there? If you can just state in simple English why we are in Iraq I would appreciate it.

I believe the administration has answered that question clearly and concisely. "Win" means a comlete withdrawl that leaves behind a self-sufficient Iraq, and one which thrives as a full-blown democracy friendly to the U.S. Anything short of that means "lose". At least according to what I've heard from the Bush administration.

Doesn't matter what they want. They are the conquered, we are the conquerers, isn't that right?
