I Have a Question
It's an election year which means candidates are spewing their bullsh*t like there's no tomorrow. One phrase that I see used on both sides, but predominately by McCain, is 'winning the war in Iraq'. What does that mean?
Both sides say that they want a 'democratic and free' Iraq, but it takes about 2 seconds of critical thinking to know that this isn't the truth. A democratic Iraq would be run by it's Shi'ia majority, and would quickly move to strengthen ties with Iran. Permanent US military bases wouldn't be allowed, and the oil fields wouldn't be privatized. The exact opposite of what the US wants.
So my question is: What constitutes victory in Iraq?
I have my own thoughts on the matter, but I'm interested in what some other people think.
