#1 Well that should do it! This killing will surely put us over the top and eliminate the need for an 18th year or war on top of the 17 unsuccessful years we've already done. Victory is just around the corner!

What's that you say? This war is hugely profitable and will never be allowed to end? Not today, not tomorrow, not in 50 years? We don't even have e defined victory condition? Gosh, it's like the entire objective in the first place was never to win. It would be like the Left admitting racism has been solved.

"Gentlemen, we must protect our phoney baloney jobs! Harrumph harrumph!"

#2 The only reason this conflict has dragged on so long is because of half measures. Half measures necessary to protect your precious collaterals. It's a conundrum. How does one decisively end a war ? With overwhelming force and an attack which shatters the spirit of the enemy. Why can't we do it ? We value our humanity.
