Time to decide whether we want to win or get the hell out. If we're there to win - then supply the troops with everything they need and devestate the enemy. Otherwise, admit defeat, deal with the aftermath and get out.

The traditional way to handle truculent warlords is to mount their heads on a pike in the market place of their home city.

..umm..thats the problem. Everyone thinks its a defeat if we leave. Who cares how the taliban will spin it. We have our own country. I remember when the very first soldier was killed, I thought to myself, we'll probally do everything in the world to not let it happen again..not.

They were wiped out.

The soldiers were taken prisoner, but not for long and probably got their throats cut, their heads cut off or were skun alive by the local women. One thing for sure, the United States military is lying again.
