America's Longest Wars


America's Longest Wars

The wars in Iraq and Afghanistan are now among the longest in U.S. history.
 
Only the Revolutionary and Vietnam wars outpace them.
 
Former U.S. Ambassador Richard Holbrooke has forecast that the war in Afghanistan will eventually be the longest war in U.S. history.

No comments:

As Jim Hightower explains it, is that “the wealthiest 1 percent of Americans possess more net worth today than the bottom 90 percent of us combined. Worse, these privileged few and their political henchmen have structured a new economic ‘normal’ of long-term joblessness, low wages, no benefits or worker rights, miserly public services, and a steadily widening chasm between the rich and the rest of us.” We must restore sanity to this nation.
