Weekend Reads: Why are we still in 'Vietghanistan?'

Scott Camil, a US Marine, with a meditation on our ongoing war in Afghanistan:

“In Afghanistan, the United States supposedly invaded to arrest one man. Last year we were told he’d been executed in Pakistan. What is the mission now?”

A five-minute read from a guy who knows the terrain. A US Marine with four years of Vietnam under his belt opines on the ongoing conflict, its similarity to his war, and its relevance to you.
