How many lives?

How many more lives will we spend in Afganistan? A war that was started to catch one man. A man who was caught and killed by a handful of people under the auspices of the CIA. Thus, a war that was unnecessary and has cost nearly as many lives as were lost in the World Trade Center. What was and is the point? History shows that no outside power has ever conquered the country or changed its feudalistic culture.

Who gains? Oil interests? Democracy evangelists? Arms manufacturers and dealers? Are there geopolitical forces at work that we don't hear or know about?
