The US war on Afghanistan has so far lasted 10 years and counting. We count lives, we count costs and Americans continue to count This war has outlasted the Civil War and The Vietnam War. Billions have been poured into Afghanistan, while The Taliban have been forced out of power and Osama bin Laden has been killed.
What are we waiting for? This U.S.-led war on Afghanistan began back on October 7, 2011, with an air campaign that was followed by a ground invasion.
This is indeed the longest-running war in our nation's history. The question which needs to be asked is how much more do we need to sustain in this senseless blood and gore?
