By David Keeley We as a nation have a habit of getting involved just enough to stir things up, cause problems for the locals and bug out. We did it in Vietnam, again in Desert Storm as well as during the Soviet-Afghan War. We helped the Muj fight the Soviets and kick them out of their country. When the Soviets left we walked away from it all, patting ourselves in the back for a job well done, now knowing or acknowledging we'd created a power vacuum in a nation that was left in ruins. The mission now is twofold; help rebuild the nation and fight the insurgents there keeping reconstruction from happening. Every day we open another school, packed so full kids stand outside the windows in the hopes of learning. The insurgents will come in and cut the hands off of any girls attending the schools. They'll burn the schools to the ground, yet the Afghanis beg us to help them build another school. I don't know if American troops on the ground is the answer but the Afghan people need all the help they can get

By Larry W. Gray Oh, yeah, it's all our fault that it is so f****d up over there. Maybe you should go there and apologize for us. Ten to one they kill your useless a**!

by anon-f8ba The snowball rolled down hill after Saddam's conviction, and it is kind of our fault that ISIS was able to advance into what it is now. So, while the US didn't precipitate the problem, we certainly made it worse.

By Larry W. Gray Strangely, I agree with that.
