Is This Really Needed....No invader in the history of Afghanistan has had any lasting effect. Russia, Britain, Genghis Khan, Alexander the Great. The country -- if it is that -- has always been a loose collection of warring tribes. When the US leaves, it will return to that. We are wasting our time, our money, and lives.
Vietnam was a waste. We can tell because we lost and it didn't make a difference. Well to the 50,000 US soldiers, and their families it did, but we lost and we are still here. We actually haven't won a war since WW2 and we didn't do that on our own.
Why don't we get out of the war business? What good does it get us?
