"We shouldn't leave Iraq until we win?"
This seems to be the latest reason for fighting this war... 'until we win'. They have become so pathetic in their excuse making that this is all they have. I heard this twice in the past two days, and I haven't been following the news at all.

Win what? They never try to explain this... it's just 'until we win'. I sure would like to see someone try to intelligently explain what win means.

It really is pathetic, considering winning anything in Iraq is impossible.

1. That is all they have left.
Every other reason has been blown to bits and this one is not far behind.
They know it is a lost cause but the war mongers must keep their chins in the air until the very last bullet is spent.

2. Define "win."
We could declare victory tomorrow and leave. I thought the mission was accomplished in May 2003?

4. We all face the consiquences of the outcome (and for that matter the
initial action). Terror and by extension terrorists don't treat the people who advocate the correct policy any differently the wrong policy. Hence the use of "we" is appropriate in describing any action that is taken in Iraq. It might even be appropriate to extend the definition of we to include the developed world including those who have did and did not choose for this war to happen.

5. like I said before, where is this "we" shit coming from?
People are getting plain terrorized abroad:
http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/middle_east/4264614.st...

and economically terrorized at home with gas prices and the anti-bankrupt bullshit

I'm not inclined to believe anything that the "powers that be" want me to believe like the fabricated "civil war"

there is no "we". They can stuff that "we" shit right into the garbage can.

6. In other words
until every Iraqi that doesn't kiss our white, neocon asses is dead.
