27 December 1979 - 15 February 1989 (9 Years and 50 days)
The Afghan people were not crazy about the puppet dictator in Afghanistan that was supported by the Russian communists. One day a bunch of them pulled him out of the palace, c…ut off his privates, and hung him up by his toes after slicing him up. Historically, the Afghans have not really liked any rulers at all. Only ONE of the rulers of Afghanistan since about 1600 left office alive. The Afghans kicked out Alexander the Great, Genghis Khan, Timurlane, Akbar, and the British Army (three times in less than a hundred years) Anyway, the Soviet Army invaded Afghanistan to prop up their man, but the Afghans kicked their asses out too. Now we're there. Any guesses what mighthappen?
The Afghan people killed the dictator who had been put in power by the Soviets. The Soviets put in another guy, and they killed him too. Finally the Soviet Army invaded. After… about 10 years, they left in disgust and disgrace, having been unable to control the general population. In the power vacuum that ensued, the Taliban came into power. They were not well received either, but at least they were Afghans, not Russians. The Taliban invited our old friend Osama Bin Laden in to Afghanistan after he'd been kicked out of nearly every other hotbed of Islamic fundamentalism. He had been one of the mujahadeen that the US had secretly trained and outfitted during the Soviet invasion.
Approximately 8 years.
There's no clear winner because this isn't a war with one direct enemy or front. It's impossible to really state a "winner".
Do you mean in money or men? Well we are trillions of dollars and pounds in debt. We have also lost hundreds and thousand's of men in Iraq and Afghanistan.
they are fighting in this war because they are trying to get rid of the Taliban.

Soldiers first landed in Afghanistan in October 2001, following the September 11 terrorist attacks.
There were bombs in that country but not as much as in Iraq because that country did not offer buildings and the such. That would be spending money killing mud.
