They say humans are supposed to learn from their mistakes. We have not. We had a Vietnam conflict a generation ago. That was, at the time, our longest conflict, discounting our continued presence in Korea. Now, Afghanistan is. We did not learn. In Vietnam, the French were there before us and left and did not gain a thing. We left Vietnam and did not gain a thing. Their government fell in 1975. Now, we are in Afghanistan, with the Russians there before us and leaving and us, again, not learning a thing. I do believe we did learn one thing in each conflict. It is difficult, if not impossible, to beat an enemy that is amongst the population and where one cannot decipher between friend and foe.
Yes, we may have helped oust the Taliban from the government. But, after we do leave, what will be in its place? Will we be willing to go back in and start all over again, if the Taliban comes back into the picture? No. Get out now and keep young American lives from being wasted.
