people of moore extremists if they believe that this war story will ever have a happy ending. it's been ten years since the us armed afghanistan as a prelude to an ongoing war later has it been worth it this week let's talk about that for wars there's no benefit so what are they still doing there for ten years i don't know what the heck. they do and i don't know it's probably another vietnam. war where he probably is not a winner. the other soldier going to win it's just a case of more and more americans and others knowing things clearcut see that it's not worth it i don't see a goal and i really see anything changing even if we stay there another hundred years it was worth it to hunt down al qaeda but i think we did there at the start with our special forces and for the past nine years i don't think we've accomplished much at all very controversial question there's pros and cons to the
