Did Obama run for president when he knew about Iraq and Afghanistan? Does he know the history of the Vietnam war and what happened after?
Presuming yes, then no this is not the next Vietnam.
U.S. and coalition forces have been fighting in Afghanistan for more than eight years, initially rooting the Taliban from control after the September 11, 2001, terror attacks against the U.S. because of its support of al Qaeda terrorists who carried out the attacks.
In March, Afghanistan will become America’s longest war, surpassing the one in Vietnam, which cost more than 58,000 American lives.
Obama will announce his strategy for Afghanistan to the nation at 8 p.m. ET Tuesday….which I’m sure he is going to blame the Bush administration for what he has to do.
