Afghanistan as the New Iraq?

In dueling speeches today, Barack Obama and John McCain offered contrasting visions for the future of American foreign policy. But, both men also made clear that Afghanistan is a primary front in the war on terror and a battle that must be taken on and won.
"As president, I will make the fight against al-Qaeda and the Taliban the top priority that it should be," promised Obama in an address this morning in Washington, D.C. "This is a war that we have to win."
Say it ain't so, O. As has been stated before, other empires have lost in Afghanistan, why must it be the U.S. turn?
