GUEST,Arne Langsetmo BS: WMDs WERE found in Iraq! (862* d) RE: BS: WMDs WERE found in Iraq! 30 Nov 05


Bobert:

In Afganistan you don't have to get far into the country side and find warlords in complete control of vast regions...

And with this control you have Taliban-ish business as usual...

That is one scenerio and, of course, the elections won't end the civil war...


Correctamundo. Iraq isn't Vietnam II. It's America's Afghanistan. Fits on the other end of the mantel from America's actual Afghanistan, which we chided the Russians for when it was their problem, but which the inept fools in the maladministration have managed to make their own. Afghanistan is no "victory", and little better (if at all) for our efforts there. Yes, even the elections there didn't do a whole lot but give the locals badges. But that was always a "we don't need no badges" type of place, and it's rather naive to think that we could make it anything else. And we're losing troops there as well (although arguably they're a tad closer to Osama bin Forgotten over there).

Cheers,
