Wednesday letters: U.S. challenged by military issues

U.S. troops need to be taken out of Afghanistan. If I am not mistaken, America referred to the Afghan-Russian War as Russia’s Vietnam. The Russians could not win in Afghanistan, so what makes our government believe the United States can? Afghanistan is very similar to Vietnam in that thousands of troops are trying to win an unwinnable war. Leaving troops in Afghanistan is just asking for major troubles during a pull-out of U.S. troops. A similar situation produced a terrible last few days in Vietnam, which probably will be repeated in Afghanistan if the terrorists are allowed to take more of this country.
