As of today in Afghanistan, May 18, 2010 over 1,000 kids, brothers, sisters, fathers, mothers, killed, and we are no closer to finding bin Laden then we were 9 years ago.
All this war has really accomplished is to severely polarize American politics, cause distrust for Americans of Muslim/Islamic faith, and bring dissension into everyday life of family and friends.
Wars are a no win situation.
In the end all you have left are the dead bodies of kids, especially in a war with no face, as this one is.We should never have a war. Let the leaders who want to fight get into the UFC ring and last man standing is declared the winner.
I recommend watching the Tommy Lee Jones movie “In the Valley of Elah“. Even those experienced with war have no concept of what goes on with each person involved.
