Serious question. Do we stay the course, and let the chips fall? Do we cut and run? Do we nuke the place from orbit, just to be sure? This is not a discussion of why we are there. That can be another thread. We're there, and we need to win. So..... how do we do it, if it's different than what we're doing now. Just for the record: I don't believe things are nearly as bad as described in the media. I think the media is guilty of negligent malpractice. Still, it's not going as easily as many had hoped. So what can be done to fix it? I will not accept cut and run. That is cowardice and would make the whole thing worthless. Not an option in my book. I don't feel like fighting. I'm sick of that. I ask this question simply because I was trained as one who fights wars, not a diplomat, so I acknowledge that my options are less than creative. Have at it.
