U.S. will be out of Afghanistan by 2017: White House

World War I...four years (American involvement - 19 months).

World War II...six years (American involvement - four years).

Korean War...three years.

President Eisenhower delivers farewell address warning against the military industrial complex 1961:



Vietnam War...sixteen years (full-scale engagement - twelve years)

Now the White House says America will be out of Afghanistan in 2017 - that's sixteen years for the greatest military in the history of mankind to defeat a bunch of cavemen, bedouins and goat herders. When do the American people finally figure out that war is a racket?
