Looking carefully at that which is unseen.

Thinking about: Winning the war on terror

The other side has won, and won long before Osama bin Laden was murdered in violation of international law (not that international law means anything to the Exceptional Nation). The reason? OBL himself set out his victory conditions when he said:

“All that we have to do is to send two Mujahedin to the farthest point East to raise a piece of cloth on which is written al-Qa’ida in order to make the generals race there to cause America to suffer human economic and political losses without their achieving for it anything of note.… So we are continuing this policy in bleeding America to the point of bankruptcy.”

The Washington Post story covers the message. Not, six years down the road, that anybody remembers.

So.

OBL stated his victory conditions – American bankruptcy. Anybody want to argue that America isn’t well over the line into bankruptcy?

Now let’s take a look at what the American victory conditions are, given how clearly they were expressed, before and during the current military actions.

Yeah. That’s what I thought.

Crickets.

So the only question now is how badly America will lose. My guess? “Very.”

Got popcorn?
