I'm just going to pretend you guys aren't talking politics again. Though like driving past a nasty car wreck I can't completely avoid wondering if certain people want to explain why Afghanistan didn't turn out to be the horrible boggy nightmare they were painting it would be...

It wasn't? I remember hundreds of innocent people getting killed, including many mistakes involving friendly fire. And it hasn't helped political stability. The place is going back to feudalism.

It was a nightmare. It's just that they didn't show you all the gory bits on TV.
