And we still don't know what the mission is

Sometimes it doesn't take paragraphs of analysis to get the point across.

From Politics Daily:

Half a million Americans have served two 12-month tours in Iraq or Afghanistan; 70,000 have served three combat tours; and 20,000 have served five or more deployments, according to Defense Department data.

That's one out of every 600 American citizens.

Come on Steve, it's a war of necessity! You don't need a mission, or committed allies, or even a strategy for wars of necessity, just a misguided sense of purpose and some polling data.
