Charlie Wilson Would Approve
Those looking for more background would be well-advised to read Charlie Wilson's War by George Crile - it's a chilling example of what a billion dollars or so in well-selected small arms can do to a modern superpower. I suspect that no one in the current administration has a clue as to this piece of recent history.
The difference is then it was us killing commies for the purpose of checking the spread of communism. This is a case of Islamo-Fascist's killing American Soldiers in an attempt to check the spread of ... well, I admit, I am not sure what exactly we are spreading, but their (Islamist's) claim is to hate all the things I love, so I guess it don't matter too much at this point why we are over there.
