Missing word alert

Where did it go?
When George W. Bush sent troops to Afghanistan to kill Taliban, the most prevalent word in the media was "quagmire."
Comparisons were made with centuries old military adventures in that region as the libs proclaimed Americans were either going to be there for decades or would be defeated swiftly. (They didn't care which, they just didn't want a victory.)
Now, Afghanistan is a liberal president's war, and it has been escalated.
No one seems to know why we are in Afghanistan anymore, or what the strategy is for winning and leaving.
Sounds like a quagmire to me.
If there is such a word anymore.
