We can never truly win a war in the Middle East though active military engagement.
The basis for this idea is the notion that we go to war against ideologies and political beliefs, not a figurehead or soldiers. Whenever we become actively involved in the Middle East, we divide a people creating new fractions of the religion/culture which in turn causes further suffering. We purposefully try to change or reshape the culture and beliefs of a people in the attempt to make them more similar to those of the western world. We kill thousands of innocent people, and we end up involving millions of other people from around the world, which causes the conflict to spread resulting in an end to the conflict becoming impossible. This is because the conflicts created by our engagement are everlasting.
