I guess we didn't learn any lessons from the Soviets. We had to experience it for ourselves, in what my wise father used to tell me, is the school of hard knocks. Afghani's live in the 9th century. There is loyalty to the tribe, not the country. No matter how long we're there we are not going to drag these people into the 21st century. Corruption is how the place works, not laws. Our troops should've been gone a long time ago. I hate seeing our blood spilled for ingrates of the highest caliber.
