I recently read about what has happened in Afghanistan. More than 30 years ago, the Soviet Union found that it was a losing cause to try to reform the Afghan people and control that country. So the Soviets withdrew. Called it quits!
And here it is, 30 years later and the United States is still over there, spending our national treasure, trying to do something that has already proved to be a lost cause. Are we slow learners?
