American heroes end wars

Editors, Washington Examiner

From Sherman’s March to D-Day, the United States Army has excelled at ending wars. But somehow, three presidents have failed to do the same in Afghanistan. There are parts of Afghanistan to which no occupation, no surge, no brilliant military strategy could bring a lasting peace. The U.S. could fight and keep killing insurgents there and never run out of money, weapons, or soldiers. But unending war isn’t what the U.S. military is made for. Ending wars is what we do best. It's what those heroes did 75 years ago today. And America's men and women in arms today deserve a mission that will give them the chance to do so in Afghanistan.
