So you go into a country with a corrupt 'elected' leader who everyone knows is a prop. You say you're going to have troops there as a stop-gap, while you train the locals to fight their own war, the plan being to leave at the end and they'll just manage the whole thing without you... You have a bunch of people just across the border inside a country you cant really attack - and they're getting tons of funding and support from there but you're politically constrained from doing anything about it. The fighting isn't giant pitched battles - there are no Kursks in this war...

I was talking about vietnam btw... did you think i meant something else?
