And we'll up ya two or three better!

October 7, 2009 marks the day the U.S. will begin its ninth year at war in Afghanistan. Russia of the former USSR, spent nine years in Afghanistan before its final withdrawal, February 15, 1989. Afghanistan is often referred to as the USSR's Vietnam.

Knowing we can easily beat their Afghanistan longevity, I would just like to say to the Russians:

"Na-na, na-na-NAH!" America is the greatest.

The proof is in the pudding.
We can have three losing wars or Vietnams. We are the American Empire, so "Pffffth, take that!"

Yes..... and to add to this roster of success, in revenge for 911, more soldiers of our own have died, than were killed in the 911 attack. But we don't stop there--- we are also historically in debt as a result.
We've outdone ourselves!
