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.
There are many different ways of measuring success. Since you've brought those previous wars up for comparative purposes, how much have we spent on the current Iraq "Cake Walk" compared to those previous wars, and what do we have to show for it now and for the long term?

Not militarily, no.
Success means killing the enemy, holding territory, winning battles.
The rest is all politics.
