  1. we learned the industrial military complex made millions and the rest of us saved a nickel per gallon on gas

  2. Vietnam: The US was unprepared to win, let alone fight, a foreign war against a decentralized, guerrilla army.
    Afghanistan: The US was unprepared to win, let alone fight, a foreign war against a decentralized, guerrilla army…with local forces unable and unwilling to fight on their own.

    Progress?

    1. You did fight too hard, killing hundreds of thousands of civilians does not make you popular. Each 20 dead civilians create 1 new freedom fighter revenging his murdered relative(s).

  3. Right the Republican guys who invaded the wrong country after 9/11 while doing business with Saudi Arabia the country actually behind it, while lying about Weapons of Mass Destruction are “Experts” on Afghanistan.

  4. No president the past 20 years wanted this mess on their legacy that’s the only reason this WAS Americas longest war. Look at the mess in Afghanistan right now. This outcome would be the same regardless of timing.

  5. We still have 28,500 troops in South Korea to keep the North Koreans in check… so shouldn’t that be considered the longest war? We had 2500 troops in Afganistan to keep the Taliban in check…

  6. Shout out to George Floyd on sixteen months of sobriety. It took some tough love but he did it. Say his name liberals

  7. It was a military defeat! The Taliban did conquer the whole of Afghanistan. You lost because you have ambassadors, who think you should have stayed longer. You should not have tried to completely change the Afghan culture, you should not have killed that many innocent civilians. Besides each 20 dead civilians create 1 new freedom fighter revenging his murdered relative(s). Changing culture is a mission impossible, just look how much time e.g the Italians and the Irish needed to fully integrate into the US culture.

  8. So Biden said he’s going to protect vaccinated workers from unvaccinated workers…then said that if you’re vaccinated you’re protected…
    So WTF is it….
