‘‘The problem with the American way of war is that, technologically, it can’t lose, but, in every other sense, it can’t win.
...
The American military remains unmatched... in the sense that the only guy in town with a tennis racket isn’t going to be playing a lot of tennis matches.  But the object of war... is not to destroy the enemy’s tanks... but his will.  And on that front America loses, always.  The ‘‘unmatched” superpower cannot impose its will on Kabul kleptocrats, Pashtun goatherds, Egyptian generals, or Benghazi militia.  There is no reason to believe Syria would be an exception to this rule.

America’s inability to win ought to be a burning national question, but it’s not even being asked.’’
- Mark Steyn
