No one in America seems to know what it means to lose a war[edit]

The average person in the U.S. thinks that Vietnam is an example of losing a war. You pack up your stuff, load your troops, and fly away, leaving your proxies to the tender mercies of the opposition... and go back to living life with a little less foolishness. But true defeat in war means giving up rights, giving up territory, conceding ideological points, paying large monetary reparations - all to secure a fragile truce that the other side can go back on anyway if you so much as look at them funny. America is playing around with Iran like they can do what they want - make a "surgical strike" and fly away, maybe even with a nuclear bunker buster, and then just forget about it afterwards. People have no idea that once the sneaky "terrorist" style counterstrikes and attacks on shipping and oil embargoes and God knows what else are unleashed that they may well be seeing their government begging an Iraq/Iran/Afghanistan/Pakistan caliphate for some kind of cease-fire and getting nothing but laughed at. 06:36, 13 November 2007 (UTC)

Also they don't seem to understand that the real threats end in -ina and -orth Korea. (Hint: the answer is CHINA AND NORTH KOREA). See Chinese Sub Embarrasses U.S. Navy for more information. 17:56, 13 November 2007 (UTC)
