We are now dealing with the aftermath of long, costly wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.
We have expended money and lives to achieve nothing, except perhaps the collapse of both countries. Blame is being promulgated about responsibility, particularly for the debacle in Iraq.
Much of this comes from Republican candidates for president who condemn President Obama for pulling our troops out of Iraq.
None of them learned from Vietnam that military might does not ensure victory when we support corrupt regimes. That was true in Vietnam, and it is true in Iraq.
