Kabul, Afghanistan—The Soviets learned it after years of fighting and thousands of their young men were sent home in rubber bags. We’ve been there since 2001 and have our own dead and dismembered to show for that struggle.
To enter a country in an effort to separate the good people from the bad that mission is doomed to failure. It has not and can never be done.
George W. Bush was not smart enough to realize this and neither is Barack Obama.
It is the job of a country’s own citizenry to control government. It’s not our job. If a government becomes a danger to the rest of the world that country must be bombed into submission and that does not require ground troops. We have the technology to do this.
