In Afghanistan, we were told going in that the war would be long, difficult, and perhaps even unwinnable. A lesser man than George Bush might have gotten weak kneed at the prospect of sending our troops into a "mountainous Vietnam" and found some sort of excuse not to go. But, not only did we take the fight to our enemies in Afghanistan, we bombed Al-Qaeda's camps, decimated the Taliban, drove them out of power in less than two months, and sent our enemies running to Pakistan and remote caves on the Afghan border, where they live even today as hunted men. This is even more impressive than it sounds since our defeatist press was crying "quagmire" & "Vietnam" as we bombed our enemies into oblivion.So how's that whole "long, difficult and perhaps even unwinnable" thing working out for you, asshole?

Their Stupid Lasts Forever! Afghanistan War at 10!
The Internet has a long memory... I'll bet this guy, John Hawkins, wishes he hadn't written this little rah-rah rant on how cool war in Afghanistan would be. (Note: We're on year 10 and at $463BN and counting!)
