Absolutely. In my opinion if we ever even considered invading Iraq (which I wouldn't have) it should have been well after business was taken care of in Afghanistan. If we had even half of the troops in Afghanistan in the beginning that we have committed to Iraq right now I think it would be in a lot better shape and with a lot more governmental control outside of Kabul. Not to mention the extra manpower to root out remnants of the Taliban as well as Al-Qaeda. Afghanistan could have been the poster child for US goodwill, instead it is a job half-done.
