Words of the Weasel Part 11
"Exit strategy" as in a way out of a war. There are only two ways out of a war. Victory or defeat. If it isn't victory. it is a defeat. Like Viet Nam, where the US executed an exit strategy, (helicopters lifting off from the Saigon embassy) the enemy won the war. Today's Sunday pundits are talking about exit strategies as I type this. Exit strategy is a weasel phrase for pulling out US troops and handing victory to the enemy.
