We aren't through with Afghanistan and the war against Iraq has been long over. Welre involved in fighting an insurgency made up of all kinds of people, but we are actually working WITH and HELPING the Iraqi government.

Who knows if we'll get drawn into messing with somalia again.
Yeah, I mentioned the UN/US pull-out back in 1993. No, it wasn't anything like Iraq. We knew what was going on, it wasn't a matter of the Somalians surprising us. Also, before the Battle of the Black Sea, a helicopter was shot down by an RPG and food stores were being taken from the people. Go read up on that operation and the history of it. You'll find that US policy is much different now than when Clinton was in office.

Um...Iraq and Afghanistan are on two sides of Iran and Iraq is in between Israel and Lebanon...

Russia is kinda run down and worn out and selling off military technology to keep from goin completely broke, hell their the reason most of these little countries are now nuclear players, but i still dont count russia out either. We all think france is a bunch a P(**&^S but who knows. Then Italy and Germany are some old players in the war game but so far havent seen any aggression from them.
Where is any of this going?
