It is very hard to believe that over the years our brilliant minds in Washington keep making the same mistakes over and over again. One would think that after huge misjudgements were made in Korea and Vietnam that we learned a lesson. Not a chance!
As a strong believer in our democratic system; communism is a vicious threat to our system, but this doesn’t warrant us to sacrifice thousands of lives for the cause. Communism will survive for awhile, but eventually those countries have to come around to our system.
Afghanistan is an issue that has no possible ending for us. If our politicians would read a simple history book on the country, we wouldn’t be in such a position. In my opinion, the conflict is not worth a single American life. let them be and let them resolve their own problems. They’ve done it for thousands of years.
