    We never learn. Military action is the last resort. When it is the solution, one goes in swiftly, use every tool at ones disposal for a swift, sure victory. When that is secured, make a quick exit. What is so hard about that?

    It is likely that we have the best army the world has seen. Yet because of the way the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan have been fought I believe the muslims no longer fear us. If we had come out of Afghanistan ten years ago and stayed out of Iraq I believe the situation in the muslim countries would be totally different than now. Obamma's apology tour simply reinforced the muslim opinion that we were weak!

    The GW Bush policy was wrong, as well, to "win hearts and minds," change the ROE, nation build, etc. The initial ROE were changed under GW, I believe, obama just made it worse.

    Col. David Hackworth (the Hack, RIP) called Afghanistan a Vietnam-like disaster in the making back in 2002

    That is correct! If we had the same rules in WWII we would have lost!

    We should get out NOW. The entire country is not worth one soldier's life.
