Reconstructing Afghanistan

U. of Texas Law Professor Sandy Levinson:
"Anyone who believes in the fantasy of nation building in Afghanistan should, at the very least, read about the failure of Reconstruction in the South, where the local insurgency, led by the Ku Klux Klan, prevailed over the Union forces led by now-President Ulysses Grant."
Here in Northwest Florida, we know something about that. There are days when it seems Civil War never ended.
