104. I've thought about the Afghanistan
war many times. I can not see how the Afghanistan War and escalation is going to help us in the long term. It seems to me that our messing about in foreign affairs is what brought on the terrorist attacks to begin with.

There have been many undesirable unforeseen consequences to America's foreign policy in the past. Afghanistan and Iraq could bring about more of these.

The Vietnam War still haunts this country. Look at the pain and suffering it caused us even years after. I lost a friend to agent orange exposure many years after the war was over.
