All wars have winners and loosers....even never ending ones that eventually end. This war is finally over and we lost big. We lost troops, equipment, plane-loads of cash, international respect and access to raw materials. We waged a Never-ending war and lost....and its a nightmare.

Nope. What happened in Afghanistan is fantastic for the people of the US and the future of humanity as a whole. Your nonsensical dooming isn't gonna work.

Losers and winners appear only in a finite game.

Think Monopoly. Who wins? Who loses.

Think chess: who wins, who loses, when is a draw?

In an infinite game, there is only losing a battle, and then up to the next, as the game continues on and on.

Round and round she goes, where she stops, nobody knows. As the world turns.

Game theory.

Of course, for optics, events can be interpreted to rally or totally demoralize.
