18. What good has it done?
Compare the approach * took with Afghanistan to the approach Clinton took with Libya. In the former case, we've lost hundreds of American lives, and over six years later we STILL haven't captured the two primary targets we went in after. In the latter case, we used diplomatic and economic pressure, and Libya eventually cooperated with us and handed over the suspects we were after.

By going into Afghanistan, and then diverting attention to Iraq and not finishing the job, * has only served to make things much WORSE in the region.
