Only impossible because we didn’t nuke the dump from the start. If we had used tactical nukes on the border of Pakistan and didn’t give them 30 days of negotiations and deadlines with the Taliban...this thing would have been done years ago.
What exactly is ‘victory in Afghanistan’?
Mikhail Gorbachev: A Harry Reid wannabe.
Wasn’t Obama going to get OBL? I haven’t heard his name mentioned by a Democrat since... well since, 2008.

Here is my personal war philosophy:
Win in Four
Lose in Ten
I mean of course, in four years or ten. We either take the Sherman approach, or the Marquis of Queensberry rules.
Nuke Afghanistan for Morbid....
Within the limits of what is culturally acceptable in the west - at the moment - the Soviet Union’s Jimmy Carter is correct.
“Mikhail Gorbachev, the former leader of the Soviet Union, has warned that Afghanistan risks turning into another Vietnam”
Sionce we have about 50,000 bodies to go, I’m gonna say no. Unless he simply means it’s going to be a loss. But it’s not like Vietnam was the U.S.’s only ever loss, so the comparison is superficial at best.
Gorby is a lib idiot. Vistory is impossible for him only.
Soviet troops had a different approach so Taleban was shitting their pants in caves most of the time before Gorby desided to go home.
And still commies had power for a few more years there.
The main problem with A-stan is it is not worth to hold a boot there. That is the main reason why one haven’t ‘conquered’ that. If one had a will both Russians, US or even France could vaporise A-stan in a year.
