You would have thought the US would have known better after Russia wasted I can't remember how many years in Afghanistan.Don't care, we should have never invaded Afghanistan or Iraq. We could have taken out Bin Laden in EXACTLY the same way we did, sooner, never invaded either country, and the entire region and world would be much more stable. A million people died because GW and Cheney though the US could quickly help the Afghan government defeat the Taliban, who were already on the ropes. Our entering the fray gave the Taliban a new lease on life. The only think people in Afghanistan hatred more than the Taliban is the US.
That's just the reality.
