Military Congress May Declare the Forever War

This is in today's Atlantic; I have not checked it out on the Snopes Reference page. https://www.theatlantic.com/politics...er-war/562175/

If this is true, then it is truly scary.

ETA: did not find it in What's New?

Gee, what could possibly go wrong? Well, more wrong in that it really looks like all that all those lives in Afghanistan, as well as a few trillion dollars, has accomplished is that the Taliban only controls a lot of the country, not all of it. At least Iraq is now a place of peace and security, a strong democracy standing as a bastion of liberty, a role model for the Middle East.

Hell yeah!

Let's not forget those peaceful places like Syria; last I heard, they were doing just fine.
