Um, I don't think the young Jean-Luc did much tea sipping either... something about a bar fight and impaled through the heart.

Discuss the US Presidential Election & the War

gailwynand Re:Define "Winning" (1211 comments)

Now for the serious stuff. In war, the mission is accomplished when it's over. If you haven't satisfied your civilian population that the mission you sold them on has been accomplished and the war is over, then "OPORDER" or no, you haven't accomplished your mission.

What you are talking about is politics. War is an extension of politics by "other means." That sign was posted by the servicemen on that ship whose mission, the invasion of Iraq, had been accomplished.

Now, I agree that the mission that Bush sold the public, using political language rather than military, has not been accomplished, and won't be until the troops are home.
