This is the war America should have been fighting from the start. There was not point to invade Iraq. If Bush and Cheney had only focused their time and efforts on the Afghan maybe it would be a thing of the past. America invaded in 2001, it makes no sense to keep fighting this war. America cannot beat terrrorists that are not even there.
