Are you nuts? The idiots around here were equating Afghanistan to Viet Nam.
I think your memory is failing you. Of the 535 members of Congress, only one voted against invading Afghanistan and that was Barbara Lee from the Berkley/Oakland district in California. Even Ron Paul, Dennis Kucinich and Cynthia McKinney voted for it. The polls supporting the war at the time of the invasion showed 98% support, and even 70% from Lee's own district. After it was revealed that she was the only "no" vote, she made statements backtracking to hold off political challengers who accused her of being too pacifist. Now just think of that: the Congresswoman from Berkley had to become a hawk in order to get reelected
. My point is that no one opposed the Afghanistan War at the time it was launched.
