Two things that need to be said about this. The Afghan war isn't either. That is:
* It isn't a good war
* It isn't an Afghan war
What do I mean by that? First, I find the "good war" term offensive. I find it hard to use that word to describe anything that maims and kills innocent men, women and children. All wars have an element of evil in them. That said, this one was better than most. I thought that invading Afghanistan in late 2001 was the right thing to do, and I still do.
