We picked the time and place for the battle, chose ground we want to fight on.
Baloney. It's obvious by now it was part of their strategy not to engage us initially head on but to fight a prolonged gorilla war. Your analysis is so "MBAish", so "Wall Streetish", so "quarterly reportish". Really, you think you can just arbitrarily define success to be whatever you want it to be? You should not be so concerned about "selling" some baloney to the American public. Instead, you should be concerned with "sending" the "message" to those we're fighting.

Militarily, success is defined as:
- We win all the battles.
- We hold the vast majority of the territory.
- We kill more of them than they kill of us.
- The battle is taking place on *their* soil, not ours.
You're mistaken, friend. This is a big win.
