Who are they? When did they say that? And is that a plan, to stay the course?

1. Because if they didn't say that, they'd be fired
The ones prosecuting this war are 'can-do' 'yes-men' and not leadership quality generals. Rumsfeld fired anyone who wouldn't do what he said.

3. Define "Win"
Pump half their oil unmetered? Establish permenant bases amongst the chaos? Kill everybody?
