I hate to say “I told you so,” but frankly I did. I predicted the same events for Iraq as happened in Vietnam: After the good guys leave, the bad guys move in and take over. Thousands of lives wasted, millions of men and women left with lifelong injuries – most physical, some mental.
When will the U.S. learn that this type of police action does not work?
Remember after we defeated Germany and Japan in World War II? To this day we have troops in those countries. Those who fail to learn from history are doomed to repeat it.
