America in Afghanistan since 2001

Monday, April 07, 2014

Carlotta Gall talks about reporting from Afghanistan and Pakistan since shortly after 9/11 and gives a sweeping account of a war brought by well-intentioned American leaders against an enemy they barely understood and could not truly engage. Her book The Wrong Enemy: America in Afghanistan, 2001-2014, combines personal accounts of battles and betrayals with moving portraits of ordinary Afghanis who have endured war for more than a decade.

I am shocked, just shocked, to hear about Pakistan's perfidy. India is the bogeyman. Pakistan and Afghanistan have unsettled border; Afghanistan does not recognize it.

The Pakistan military strategy see’s Afghanistan as a fall back position in case a war with India ensues.
