I think Afghanistan is going to be another Vietnam. I think this because Afghanistan has a rough terrain to fight in like Vietnam did. The terrain makes it easier to hide and use guerrilla warfare. Their solders are more used to that terrain and ours aren’t because we don’t live there.

In Vietnam around 55,000 people died and in Afghanistan the death toll is constantly rising. In both wars there is a major group of people we are fighting against. In Vietnam it was the Viet Cong and in Afghanistan it’s the Taliban, both groups have strategies to fighting.We should get out of Afghanistan before things get worse.
