The Forgotten War Is Also Unpopular

What's strange to me about pollling on the war in Afghanistan is that it's been the least costly in American blood and treasure, and arguably the most justified conflict since WWII, certainly as compared to Iraq.  But whatever, I'm glad people realize it was a mistake.  Too bad they likely won't extrapolate--I suspect most still believe in a difference between smart wars and dumb wars, like our C-in-C.

I think that there needs to be a new term for conflicts like Afghanistan. It's not a war, in the sense WWII was. We haven't taken the nation to war - we've just sent troops and equipment to fight on foreign soil. As the Shrub said, the nation was only expected to go out and shop.
