Roman Empire

'Cause the Greeks weren't quite epic enough.

Awesome. Imagine the Romans or the great WWII German military soughting Afghanistan out. Suddenly that war would be winnable.

There's no comparison to how the Romans would have dealt with Afghanistan. I remember hearing a battle of Romans and a foe at a stalemate. The foe's city was besieged, and their people were starving, so they sent a small group of their women and children along to where the Romans were to gain safe passage past the blockade. Of course, the Romans sent them straight back to probably starve, securing their own victory. Had they allowed them to pass (and had been shackled with the concerns of fighting a humanitarian war) they would have lost.

Imagine the US army doing that?
