I seem to remember conservative posters insisting that there would be wall to wall coverage of the wars if a Republican were in office.
Yet it seems of late neither Iraq or Afghanistan are making too many headlines.
Still, some are still paying attention, and the situation in Afghanistan at least looks like it’s slowly degrading.
I do wonder if in 2020 either party will campaign on just calling it quits, cutting the (ongoing) losses and getting out. Or at least coming to a peace agreement with the Taliban and letting them officially take over half the country.
Seems like getting out is Trumps inclination (per numerous leaks), maybe after the mid-terms I guess.
