Right. The only problem is the United States has had to reinvade some areas of Afghanistan twice to stem the tide of a resurgent Taliban. Iraq is an unholy mess, increasingly in the grips of a sectarian civil war. Few people are safe anywhere in Iraq. The educated elite have fled their country. The U.S. will be paying for this insane war for the next 20 years And every week, another body of a U.S. soldier comes home. For what? So that a bunch of people who know nothing of sacrifice can thump their chests as if they're actually doing somethin?
