Throughout more than a dozen recent presidential TV debates, we learned very little regarding plans to end America’s longest war.
The United States-led invasion of Afghanistan on Oct. 7, 2001, marked the beginning of a war that shows no signs of abating. The vast sacrifice of U.S. lives and millions of dollars in military spending over the past 15 years has received very little attention among candidates for political office.
America has initiated three long wars (Vietnam, Iraq and Afghanistan) that have lasted 33 years. Two of these wars continue. We need to elect candidates for political office who support peace initiatives.
