Maybe, but as Rummy said: "Democracy is messy."

Just look at Iraq.

Right. The only defensible war is a war of defense.

The same thing will happen in Afghanistan as in Iraq once our troops pull out. US presence has NOT and never will civilize extremist muzzie savages. The ME tribes, religious sects, etc........have been fighting each-other for thousands of years and it will continue for centuries to come. It's a waste of time, money, effort and the horrific loss of our US service members to even try to educate extremist savages. The only thing to solve the problem is to drop MOAB on the ME and terrorism will cease.

The wars were all but over. Obama has started them up all over again. He's even giving the Taliban it's generals back.

Go figure.
Republicans finally had the thing fixed and Obama goes and ruined it when victory and peace was right in our grasp.
.
No wonder Millennials are all leaving the democrat party. Tired of being lied to I think also.

Republicans are just as bad, and partly started those nonsensical invasions in the first place. We never had any business being there.

it is ,,democratical,, voting controlled by rifles of occupying soldiers and only on candidates, who are o'k' ed by occupying forces. It is parody and grotesque.

there are no democracy. there are some , probebly highly corrupt persons accepted by leaders of these countries, which have invaded Afghanistan, there are no democratical elections there and these pseudopoliticians are not people, who represent Afghan society.
