Where empires go to die

So this weekend, we passed two sad milestones: the 1000th death of a U.S. servicemember in the Afghanistan war and $1 trillion spent on OEF/OIF. This coming weekend, we will have been in Afghanistan for 104 months, making it the longest war in U.S. history (Vietnam was 103).

We need to get the hell out of both Iraq and Afghanistan. We are not winning, we are not preventing terrorism, we are not doing anything but alienating the civilians, creating new terrorists and destroying our own economy.
