14. Afghanistan is the graveyard of empires...

Anybody who's read even a little history knows that Afghanistan is the graveyard of empires; why should American be any different. We went into Afghanistan because Bush was too stupid and Cheney was too corrupt to care about the final outcome - money was to be made so why worry about the lives of American soldiers, innocent Afghans, and the US treasury. Vietnam was a quagmire, but Afghanistan is even worse; because we will see blow back for years to come.
