Looking back, a lot of Americans aren’t happy with the United States’ efforts in Iraq and Afghanistan, according to a study by the Pew Research Center and USA Today. In the study, 52 percent of Americans say the country “mostly failed” in both Iraq and Afghanistan, while 37 and 38 percent of the U.S. citizens said the country succeeded in Iraq and Afghanistan, respectively.
“However, there are no significant partisan differences in opinions about whether the U.S. has achieved its goals in Iraq and Afghanistan,” Pew said. “Fewer than half of Republicans, Democrats and independents say the U.S. has mostly succeeded in achieving its goals in either country.”
