A Decade of War -- for What?

I totally agree. We can never win a war where we don't know who the enemy is. Our military could have actually won this war if their hands weren't tied behind their backs. We won WWII because we didn't ask the soldiers to make sure everyone on the ground was the enemy before we dropped a bomb. We have gained nothing but we have lost a lot. Our soldiers need our support more than ever. They have been asked to do the impossible. I am surprised more of them haven't gone beserk.

"My fellow Americans, we have traveled through more than a decade under the dark cloud of war," said Barack Obama from Bagram Air Base.

"Here in the predawn darkness, we can see the light of a new day on the horizon. The Iraq War is over. The number of troops in harm's way has been cut in half, and more will be coming home. ... The time of war began in Afghanistan, and this is where it will end."

Interesting comment, that last.

If "the time of war" is at an end, does that rule out U.S. military action in Syria...
