2,000 Mistakes
Posted by The Agonist on June 15th, 2012

According to the official DoD count (PDF), as of today (Thursday) there have been 2,000 American fatalities in Operation Enduring Freedom. As John Kerry famously asked in 1971: “How do you ask someone to be the last American soldier to die for a mistake?”, because that’s certainly what the failed nation-building experiment in Afghanistan has turned into. Born out of the same Western hubris as the Iraqi occupation and perpetuated by Western leaders who are too scared of admitting their hubris to their electorates.
