I've read this statement on nytimes.com "We can not kill our way out of the Afgan wars" and "There's no way the American can kill its way out of the conflict". I wonder what it means. Does it say that the American can not just run away from the war and its consequences or does it have other meanings?

Thanks a lot

It seems to mean that America cannot win the war just by killing people.
