That's fine, I made my point or so I thought. I don't think its quite as complicated as you do. I mentioned Grenada and 9/11 as things we were involved in and not in relation to anything else, just examples for the poster who was all worried about us not getting involved in Moz.You included Granada and 9/11, which have nothing to do with Iran 2 and 3, Afghanistan 2, Vietnam or Korea.
Granada, for what it's worth was considered a victory.
Iran 1, was for practical purposes a more or less victory.
Afghanistan 1, ended for the Russian the same way Vietnam ended for the US thus a very minor moral victory.
9/11 was a terrorist act leading to a never ending war against terrorists. Much like the ending war on drugs and drug cartels.
Afghanistan changed from being a gorilla war action to anti terrorist threat.
Iraq 2 was popular opinion vs politics and Bush Jr, responded in kind, which led to Iraq 3 becoming another anti terrorist threat.
Actions in Afghanistan and Iraq gave credence to Iran and even a bigger anti terrorist threat and more chaos in the mid east.
Making a peace deal with terrorists would be compared to cops making peace with criminals, giving them free passes to continue their respective violent acts.
The only way to end terrorism is to convert to Nazis SS tactics, through cooperation with other countries pro and anti America going house to house rounding up guilty and suspected terrorists then quickly without trial executing them.
Personally I say Hell Yeah. Realistically when considering the "big picture", Definitely not a good idea.
