No mission in Afghanistan is going to succeed.
The USSR fought there for 15 years, all out war with no holds barred, and accomplished nothing.
The US will probably be there just as long or longer and will also accomplish nothing.
One would think we might have learned something from Vietnam but fools and history repeat.
The only ones who win are the likes of Hilburton.
Sometime, in the not so distant future, the US will suffer a total financial meltdown. That is when something will be accomplished but it won't be a good thing it will be the end result of over 100 years of corruption.
