Strategy of War?? How about Victory

Posted by madjillmom on September 21, 2009

Per the Washington Post: “Obama said last week that he will not decide whether to send more troops until he has ‘absolute clarity about what the strategy is going to be’.”

Is it utterly simplistic to say that the ultimate strategy of any war by any nation is WIN?!!!!  It is the President’s handpicked Gen. McChrystal who is requesting the additional troops in order to salvage the effort and be victorious.  If you don’t want to win the war you said was the right war, what is it you want to do.  I believe he doesn’t have the fortitude and conviction to ride over his own party and get the job done.

Last night, our oldest son sent a text to tell us that his first platoon leader at West Point had just lost his legs in Afghanistan.  It is getting closer to his active military career and eventual deployment into a war our President is trying to decide if he really wants to win.  I hope the President figures it out before our son has to go.
