    So, I thought according to Obama after HE took out Osama Bin Laden, Al Quaeda and the Taliban was on the run?

    A land with tribes that are so unable to form a coalition for their country is hard to deal with. The Russians left for a good reason, and not just because of Osama Bin Laden and his groups and splinters of other groups.

    It is not a normal set up country. The Britah and Russians have had their eyes on that area since the 1830s. The British fell two years after installing their government with a puppet that wasn't strong. Russia learned in the 1980s that it is still a bad area to try to take over and rule with peace.

    Iraq and Afghanistan are both weak economies and political gains for any outside power. How the British empire did their dividing of various colonial countries due to their geo-political conquests, has been a hard thing for countries and citizens, over the years.

    Osama Bin Laden, if he had met his demise during the Clinton administration, would have probably helped the overall situation but when a vacuum happens, someone seems to fill in for that individual.

    Terrorists, whether Al Quaeda or Taliban, still get around to do damage.

    Beware of a land war in Asia is still valid.
