Afghanistan Looking Like Iraq at its Worst

A never-ending nightmare--read about it here--the war that should have been won in a matter of days or weeks after the mega-terrorist attacks of 9/11. For reasons still not explained and still not understood, Bush blew it. Instead of destroying the Taliban and Al Qaeda, he dislodged them, allowed their most senior leaders and top henchmen to escape into Pakistan.

Ten-and-a-half years later, the United States finds itself in a miserable mess that recalls the Iraq and Vietnam quagmires, trapped, or so it seems, into supporting a corrupt, cowardly regime, desperately seeking so-called victory with honor.
