Worse Than Vietnam

a: Afghanistan ~
b: Vietnam only worse

What: What makes Afghanistan worse than "Vietnam is doubt that we can truly win the hearts and minds. The factions are too immense and we are constantly in denial. Tribes, loyalties that constantly change, corruption, money and drugs, religious fanaticism. Need I go on? In the Nam, with strong Special Operation Forces, (Green Berets), we stood a chance, a good one to fight to a standstill and at some point when Ho realized we were not leaving, he would have negotiated. The Taliban has no reason to negotiate."
