    Anyone who knows the middle east and the cultures/peoples involved knows it was a really bad idea to invade Iraq, Afghanistan not so much if we hadn't been distracted by Iraq. Just as anyone who knows that believing the so called Arab Spring was a good thing, both did nothing more than create power vacuums except in Egypt where they ultimately took care of the problem on their own. The different sects have been fighting each other for control for generations and there's still a tribal mindset in most of the regions. Unless there's a fundamental change in the thinking of the region's inhabitants things will never change, we need to get out and of Afghanistan or we'll end up fighting there for 100 years.

    --------------------------------- TOTAL WAR , gotta kill the enemy and their supporters which is probably every one if you want to win . I suspect that good war fighting was done away with during the 'old man bush' administration when ' colon powell ' was listened to by 'old man bush . If General Scwarzkopf had held more sway , the 'goatherders might have been history a long time ago . Just my thinking Ringel .

    They do need payback for their actions since 1979. They're a classic example of why just letting scum run rampant with no checks is always a bad policy, and why the isolationists are ignoring history in favor of hiding out in the Burbs pretending 'neutrality' has always been successful. Didn't work for Washington, certainly not for Jefferson or Madison, and never has since, but because some 'Founders' cherry picked speeches are in the public record that means we're supposed to believe it works or something. what has failed is pretending we should be 'negotiating' with scum whose word means literally nothing.
