    I agree, Shock and Awe worked in Iraq...but Afghanistan has been a different war...I would say Afghanistan was more of a Vietnam war...sadly. I have a sinking feeling that once troops are out of Afghanistan, the Taliban will regain control.

    I made the prediction here or somewhere that within a year after we left, the Taliban would be back in control and things would be worse than before we went in. They've got a lot of scores to settle and it'll be brutal for a while.
