A Time Magazine quote of the day

So bring them home, Mr. President:

Their death is a reminder of the extraordinary sacrifice made by the men and women of our military and their families.

-- President Obama, on the 30 Americans who died in Afghanistan on Saturday after insurgents shot down a Chinook transport helicopter

Why don't we learn from history? If neither the British nor the Soviet Union were able to prevail in Afghanistan, what makes us think we will be successful? It's insane.
