We gained short-term benefits in both Iraq and Afghanistan, but neither war should have gone on as long as they did. In Iraq we took out Saddam who was bent on regaining nuclear capabilities that he lost in the early 1980s due to Israeli intervention. This is hardly every reported in US news circles, but it is a well-known fact that Saddam regretted invading Kuwait when he did; since he did not have nuclear capabilities at the time. If he had, we wouldn't have dared going in against him....
