I Agree With Chairman Steele

He said the war in Afghanistan is "unwinnable" and caught lots of flak for it, but RNC Chairman Michael Steele is correct. He may have arrived at this conclusion from a different path than I did, so here is my own thinking (since you asked):

To win a war, you must have an objective. When that objective is met, you have won. We refuse to define an objective, so we cannot win.

To win a war, you must declare an enemy. The war is won when the enemy is defeated. We refuse to name our enemy ("terror" doesn't count), so we cannot win.

Hence: the war in Afghanistan is unwinnable. Therefore we are sending our sons to a grist mill to profit the military-industrial complex. Are we not? Then pray tell me:

Why are we there?
