Why We Will Lose in Iraq

We are not ever going to win in Iraq, and since the only alternative is losing (I don’t believe retreat or redeployment is ever “winning”), we’re going to lose.

I’m not sure if that’s a good thing or a bad thing, but I’m confident it says something bad about the current generation of Americans.

In WWII, we killed the hell out of everybody. We killed Germans and Japanese like they were going out of style. One American general actually said “We’re going to keep killing Japanese till the only place their language is spoken is in hell.”

And that’s why we won. We just kept killing people and bombing the crap out of their major cities until they said “ENOUGH!”

If we were pussyfooting around Japan and Germany like we are in Iraq, with our idiotic “rules of engagement” and our fear of casualties, we’d all be speaking German now.

If we truly want to win in Iraq, we have to start killing like it’s our national pastime. We need to bomb civilian population centers, and we probably need to use nukes on a few of their major cities as well. We need to kill Arabs until there’s nothing left for them to do but surrender fully and unconditionally, and there’s no infrastructure left for them to mount terrorist attacks on our soil.

If we aren’t willing to sustain casualties of our own, and we aren’t willing to HAPPILY kill civilians, we have no chance of “winning” in Iraq.

We haven’t had the stomach or the will to win a war since WWII, and if we don’t figure out how to get our guts back, someday some country who DOES have guts is going to conquer us.

This is how it works.

    I agree…watched a great interview with a general who said, militarily, the war never ends. He said they want America to stay till there can be a political conclusion…the Sunnis and Shiites need to come to an arrangement, and for that there needs to be leadership coming to the table. the problem is they have found no leader in either group up to the task of forging an agreement. Ultimately, if we pull out before the agreement, one group will ‘cleanse’ Iraq of the other. They need a leader to pull them together soon!

    Kinda scary when someone just says it straight like that, eh?!

    PS – I by no means endorse the Iraq war. The only reason I can think of why we should stay is to conquer Iraq and use it as an oil reserve.

    Can we just bomb it further into the stone age and steal the oil?

    But, let me know before we start. I have some peeps who I’d like to give advance notice to
