Response to Decaffeinated (Reply #33)

34. So tell me how the military, economic...

 

..or diplomatic/political interests of the US have been served by losing a war in a country literally without a country?

How have those economic interests been served by us pissing away$6 Trillion on both those wars in the Sandbox? Oh, wait... opium production is at an all-time high. I guess some economic interests have been served.

What wonderful things have those drone strikes done for our political interests? Have we made lots more allies and friends all over the world?

And our military....? 2200 dead and thousands of wounded. Against an irregular force. We have air control, modern technology, endless supplies.. and the Taliban are expanding their control. Beyond morale issues, don't you think that might give other potential enemies ideas?

Tell me all the advantages of going there, being there for 12 years, and planning on staying there for the foreseeable future. Tell me all.
