This made me feel better:
The wars in Iraq (x2) and Afghanistan were walkover victories for the US (and allies), and by no means inconclusive, so they’re actually batting 3.5 out of 5. They were also extremely short. The post-war occupations and then aid to the civil power have not gone so well. Basically, they’re good at fighting wars and bad at acting as a police force.
