Ann Coulter on the difference between Iraq and Afghanistan:

Bush declared success and turned his attention to Iraq, leaving
minimal troops behind in Afghanistan to prevent Osama bin Laden from
regrouping, swat down al-Qaida fighters and gather intelligence.

Having some vague concept of America's national interest – unlike
liberals – the Bush administration could see that a country of
illiterate peasants living in caves ruled by "warlords" was not a primo
target for "nation-building."

By contrast, Iraq had a young, educated, pro-Western populace
that was ideal for regime change.

You have to give it to Ann, she will always find a way of making whatever point she is trying to convey utterly offensive, racist and childishly stupid.
