IMHO, the answer to this question is 'NO'. The United States both had and has no legitimate business in Iraq or Afghanistan. If we Americans were wise, we would deep-six both Iraq and Afghanistan and reallocate our limited vital resources to help Israel neutralize Iran's impending nuclear capacity. Now that would enhance everyone's security.
