The problem seems to be ours and we are stuck with it

Reader comment on item: The Afghan War's Dismal End; Blame Bush Too

Submitted by Jacques Hadida (United States), May 28, 2014 at 18:56

And what good will It do if Republicans take ownership of the problem ? The problem is there and will stay as long as we are there Imagine that after 25 years, the Afghanis are still not able to manage to live by themselves in their home and we propose to stay there another two years ,by which time, at this speed we will extend an extra two Enough is enough, let us get out of there, we have invested too much in dollars and lives with nothing to show. Why don't we learn from our mistakes? Do we still believe we are the best at solving other people's problem? Why don't we agree that we made mistake after mistake and have no clue how to get out of it? The world will be a better place if each one takes care of his own problems

Daniel Pipes replies:

You missed my point about Republicans. I want them to acknowledge Bush II's mistakes, not extend the war.
