Obama: Victory Not Necessarily the Goal in Afghanistan

We all know how President Obama does not like to use the word “victory.”
It might sound offensive.
Today the Kook in Chief said that “victory was not necessarily the goal” in Afghanistan.
FOX News reported:

President Obama has put securing Afghanistan near the top of his foreign policy agenda, but “victory” in the war-torn country isn’t necessarily the United States’ goal, he said Thursday in a TV interview.

“I’m always worried about using the word ‘victory,’ because, you know, it invokes this notion of Emperor Hirohito coming down and signing a surrender to MacArthur,” Obama told ABC News.

The enemy facing U.S. and Afghan forces isn’t so clearly defined, he explained.

“We’re not dealing with nation states at this point. We’re concerned with Al Qaeda and the Taliban, Al Qaeda’s allies,” he said. “So when you have a non-state actor, a shadowy operation like Al Qaeda, our goal is to make sure they can’t attack the United States.”

Heaven forfend!
We wouldn’t want the US to win at anything now would we?
That would be horrible.
