    Wow what do you know. A democratic election within 2 years of our initial invasion. I guess were not fucking things up as bad as the media and the Dems would have us believe.

    Really? I was aware that we went in there starting in October 2001 - retaliatory to the 9/11 stikes. Or was that just the bombing campaign? Even still, we atleast had special forces in there and were supporting the Northern Alliance fight the Taliban...

    Could have sworn the "Official" invasion was February 2002. I remember being frustrated at having to wait so long to do something about 9/11.

    yeah, but SF/Delta was in right after 911. Actually, they were in to a MUCH lesser extent even before 911 but we were only "observing".
