Business Insider- Yes Congress! Afghanistan is your new Vietnam

MN Guardsman- Afghanistan

Afghanistan resembles Vietnam in three crucial aspects. 

  1. With direct combat operations lasting nearly 14 years, our continued presence in Afghanistan seems to drag on with no real end in sight. 
  2. Continued "mere persistance" deems yet to produce a true postive outcome. 
  3. Having been through three different presidential administrations, countless senior comissioned high brass, and advisors. Good ideas are proving to run thin.
