We defeated both Germany and Japan, industrialized nations with millions of trained and motivated troops in less than 5 years. How is it we cannot defeat a bunch of poppy farmers in 18? I don’t think it is our men and women in uniform. Can it possibly be our politicians and who we have set up as our partners? This looks like a bad replay of Viet Nam.
The Afghanistan Papers: A secret history of the war
I understand that Afghanistan is rich in many minerals, and is believed to have vast, untapped oil reserves underground. And, that the US does not want the Chinese to have access to these. Is it true?
Wow, this is a powerful ’toon Matt — excellent work.
Excellent yet very sad ‘cartoon’.
I wonder if the surge would have worked. The military asked for 40,000 new troops. Obama gave them fewer than half, which forced them to confine operations to the area around Kabul.
We “invaded” so Cheney and Haliburton could get rich off the oil. Duh.
Why are we still there? To update an old phrase, There’s gold in them thar hills…
Read Rudyard Kipling.
