War in Afghanistan Now Officially Longer than Vietnam
- As of today, June 7, 2010, the war in Afghanistan has lasted 104 months, surpassing Vietnam as the longest war in American history. American forces invaded Afghanistan in October 2001, Kabul fell that November, and Americaâ€™s attention shifted to the war in Iraq. It wasnâ€™t until after the 2007 troop surge in Iraq and, after that, the 2008 election that America refocused its attention on Afghanistan, but our troops were there all along.
Nobody been so much at war as the Nation of Peace and Democracy ...
