Anders Corr: A hard lesson for Afghanistan: sink or swim

Since the war in Afghanistan started in 2001, insurgents have killed more than 3,400 international soldiers and over 13,000 Afghan soldiers. More than 20,000 Afghan civilians have died. Estimates of insurgent deaths range from 20,000 to 35,000. Total costs to the U.S. alone for the war and related programs, such as veterans' health care, will reach $2 trillion to $3 trillion.
