Another Lost War In A Long Sad History of Lost Wars

There are four times the number of militant Sunnis ("terrorists") in the world today than on 9/11/2001, clustered in Syria, Afghanistan, and Pakistan (60k -> 230k).

Afghanistan is selling record amounts of opium (9,000 metric tons annually) and the Taliban have reclaimed 50% of Afghanistan and 70% of their pre-war territory.

After ( 18 ) years and an unconscionable $5,900,000,000,000 we have not just lost the Global War on Terror, we have been defeated in a way that our language lacks the verbiage to describe.
