The bombing comes on the heels of a string of targeted explosions striking fear in feeble communities and claiming lives across the ravished nation. On Sunday, the Taliban executed a devastating suicide car bombing in the central Afghanistan province of Ghazni, claiming the lives of 12 people and wounding more than 150 others.
Less than a week earlier, the Taliban rocked downtown Kabul, killing at least one person and wounding more than a hundred – at least 26 children were among the hurt, sliced by shards of glass when the bomb fragmented nearby windows.
While the future of Afghanistan and the quest of whether stability will ever be achieved remains a complicated question for lawmakers and officials, a new Pew Research Center study concludes that the majority of veterans do not consider both the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq worth fighting “considering the costs versus the benefits.” The views “do not differ based on rank or combat experience.”
The study found that 58 percent did not deem Afghanistan worth it and 64 percent Iraq was not constructive.
The views of U.S. veterans, military website Task & Purpose pointed out, closely mirror the perceptions of civilians in which 62 percent of Americans in total stated that the war in Iraq was not worth it and 59 percent echoed that going into Afghanistan was also not worth the cons and cost.
