The Definition of Victory

As SSC cited below, the President has said will will not leave Iraq until we have victory. Even though the President has said victory is a stable and democratic Iraq free of WMD, the Democrats continue to complain that such a definition is too vague. How ridiculous! You can make this same argument for any conflict For example, how about World War II, what was Victory. Was it the unconditional surrender of Germany? Yes, but no. If we just left after surrender, the Soviets would have taken western europe. So what was victory in World War II? How about World War I. At the end of the war to end all wars, everyone assumed there was victory on 11/11/1918. Today, it is common knowledge that any victory that was won in 1918 was lost in the decade after the war.

My definition of Victory? When it is quite obvious that it is unkool for a muslim to be associated with Al Qaeda....That day is approaching sooner than we think.
