That war is the war on terrorism, and pulling troops out of Afghanistan to pursue a war of choice in Iraq has had and will continue to have serious consequences. The soldiers dying in Afghanistan are fighting the people who attacked America. And more and more are dying in "a half-forgotten war." Afghanistan was able to harbor al Qaeda because everyone stopped paying attention after the Soviets withdrew. When we first invaded, we were assured that we wouldnt repeat that mistake. This Memorial Day, let's remember the people who've already died in the War on Terror and do what we have to to keep them from dying in vain.
