Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
It's not fear of invasion but fear of Afghanistan being "a launchpad/haven for terrorists".

How creating failed states (as in Iraq: Saddam's was authoritarian but definitely not a failed state) escapes me. Afghanistan also became a failed state in the 1980's and the US activity in both Afghanistan and Pakistan since then has contributed decisively to Afghanistan becoming a safe haven for terrorists.

The peak-to-trough part of the business cycle is an outlier. Carnot would have died laughing.
