    Yup. Vietnam was about securing heroin supply. Afghanistan is about restoring opium production.

    History, while not exactly repeating itself, has an annoying habit cycling through well-known forms.

    Afghanistan is an empire-eater (ask Russia/USSR and Britain). There is no clear military objective there. Like Korea, Vietnam and Iraq, the US entered to achieve a political objective.

    There’s a weird idea in DC that the states auto-organize if you just knock over strongmen (or put strongmen in power).

    What’s chilling is that you know this is how the Beltway views the US.
