It’s true that, if you were looking for low-rent victories in a near trillion-dollar war, this time, as various reporters and pundits pointed out, U.S. diplomats weren’t rushing for the last helicopter off an embassy roof amid chaos and burning barrels of dollars. In other words, it wasn’t Vietnam and, as everyone knew, that was a defeat.from How Two Wars in the Greater Middle East Revealed the Weakness of the Global Superpower

This glorious triumph over evil occurred on 12/18/11 (at the beginning of the week of the winter solstice), at 2:30 a.m. The convoy consisted of 110 vehicles. A fitting end to the American phase of "the war on terror" [33 42 29 94, i.e. 6 6 11 13] in Iraq, which was actually a war on civilization and mankind in Iraq, a Satanic reign of terror, and advanced SRA on a vast scale, in which the majority of the US soldiers involved (and their loved ones) were among the victims. This is how an outbreak of SRA typically ends - almost imperceptibly, so that when it's over, people don't even notice that it ended, which has the effect of relegating it to the Twilight Zone in the minds of the vast majority of mankind.
This "war," like the "war" in Vietnam, was essentially a vast Satanic ritual, but some humanly-recognizable good also undoubtedly came of it despite our Nazi government's best efforts. There are also mysterious reasons related to human destiny for such "wars." So, although this "war" might have been a success from the perspective of Satan and certain higher beings, it was indeed a debacle and war-crimes spree from a human perspective.
However, the "war on terror" in Iraq has now entered a new phase which various pundits believe will lead to the disintegration of what little civilization remains, and this would constitute the actual "victory."
