It’s over. The long war is over. The last military casualties of the long war were babies, or yet to be born when the war started. They were the last soldiers to die in the course of this long war. We lost our way early in the war. Somewhere along the way, we decided we could establish democracies in both Iraq and Afghanistan. Yet, we do not understand either country, and there are still some troops in Iraq.
