    We should have ended this war before the Iraq diversion. Saddam was a monster but not fundamentalist; he was MILITARY, wore military dress before the surge of radical Islam. We could have slipped money to foster the opposition. We ARE creating MORE Islamic "Republics".

    If we had stayed the course in Afghanistan and not diverted all our resources to Iraq this whole campaign would probably be done by now.

    Oct 12, 2016 — For the past month, the Taliban have held control over most of Afghanistan's Helmand province, where the majority of the world's opium is grown — and as insurgent attacks intensify around the provincial capital, residents are blaming rampant government corruption for the rising militant threat.
