The president is meeting with his advisers to figure out how many troops to send, what the mission is, and what victory would look like...
The point I’m trying to make is: the troops have been fighting for eight years. NOW they’re getting around to coming up with war aims?
Yes, FDR waited two-three years to invade France during World War II. But by the time we went in, the war aims were clear.
I can’t imagine how it must feel to be a soldier in Afghanistan listening to the commander-in-chief try to figure out what a war is for AFTER we’ve been fighting and dying in it for years.
