The Terrorists Have Won

An interesting post- and an interesting point. The War on Terror has been utterly, utterly lost, and:

It doesn’t matter either way. Dead or alive, Osama bin Laden is the greatest strategist in the history of human conflict. With no navy or air force or anything that resembles a formal army, he’s managed to whip the world’s mightiest nation like a rented camel. Our economy is shot, the best-trained, best-equipped military in history has been proven impotent, and our moral standing in the world has gone through the sub-basement.


I seem to remember making a similar point before the 2004 election- that the Republicans, as war makers, were a failure to invade Iraq, and that one old guy in a Turban with a kidney condition had effectively beat the US military all hollow.

We finally got Bin Laden a few weeks ago, but the victory is hollow- for 10 years passed before he was brought to justice (if an assassination can even be considered justice).
