It ain't over till it's over

Whilst everyone is busy preparing for Iraq, there’s still a job to be done in Afghanistan.
Just think about the economics of the two sides in Afghanistan for a minute. A lot more Taliban/ Al Qaeda died than US soldiers, but it cost America millions of dollars. The Afghans used begged, borrowed or stolen equipment, costing practically nothing. In a price per kill equation they came out way ahead. The US could bankrupt itself throwing billions of dollars of ordinance at impoverished fighters the world over.
