The Longest War

It's true - 104 months mark the longest era of continuous war Great Satan has ever hooked up with.

Hard on the heels of scary new words like 'Ground Zero" "Taliban" "Jihadistan" and "Gender apartheid' Great Satan defied naysayers and nonprofit defeatists about the Graveyard of Empires and swiftly knocked out one Taliban stronghold after another.

"...First fell Mazar-i-Sharif, then Kabul, finally Kandahar. Osama bin Laden and Mullah Omar were on the run. It looked as if the war was over, and the Americans and their Afghan allies had won..."

"...104 months ago, when those first bombs fell, anthrax was terrorizing the nation; Barack Obama was a little-known Illinois state senator; and soldiers now "surging" to Kandahar were in junior high. We didn't have YouTube, or IPhones. And Palestine was coming apart

104 months. A lot of stuff has happened, and a lot more is fixing to happen

It's gonna get crazier. And Great Satan's willpower and staying power will be just as vital as her firepower and brain power

"There is no safe haven that al-Qaeda covets more than the border regions of Afghanistan and Pakistan, which present a unique opportunity for our enemies and a threat to us. Situated in rugged terrain hundreds of miles from any coastline, with weak or nonexistent governance and security services, this region provides both a home to al-Qaeda and possible access to nuclear weapons.

Great Satan should get loud that unassing Afghanistan - to split the AO where she was "...brutally attacked and in which more attacks are now being planned..." is never, ever going down, so long as there is the slightest chance, possibility or opportunity of a repeat.
