Well said.

One of the things that is clearly lost in the current discusion of the topic is the difference between the grand strategic and tactical levels of the conflict. For example, it seems that those who still wish to defend the policy conflate the diminished violence that has taken place post Surge as the same as a broader strategic victory. Indeed, to listen to some, it equals the winning of the war.


Thank you sir for your insightful perspective.

although, you know, the Hundred Years War went on for quite some time, and even the Thirty Years War no doubt became tedious after a while.
