On Iraq and Afghanistan

As a reaction to 9-11, the U.S. targeted Afghanistan. As the action was swift, the Bush administration took their eye off the ball and shifted their focus to Iraq. Although many Americans initially supported the invasion of Iraq, time demonstrated a changing public sentiment as the public had little patience on continual use or our country’s armed forces and resources.

Out of Iraq we come as President Obama returns to the initial focus – Afghanistan, thus this will become his war, just as Iraq become President Bush’s war. The public eye will shift from Iraq to Afghanistan, so how long will it take for the American public to again have little patience with continual use of our armed forces and resources? Time will tell.
