Rethinking Afghanistan

Anne Miller, Truthout: "The lack of serious scrutiny of the president's Afghanistan policy is nothing short of stupefying, especially given our recent misadventures in Iraq. Where is the critical debate? The mantra of many Democrats is that military force alone won't solve the problem in Afghanistan. The 'problem' seems to be how to keep the corrupt US-backed central government in Kabul from falling, and what to do about the thousands of al-Qaeda members in Afghanistan and Pakistan. Meanwhile, many conservative members of Congress lament that the president isn't sending additional brigades. Congress and the public should be asking what President Obama realistically thinks the US military can accomplish with an additional 21,000 US forces in Afghanistan. What can they do that soldiers from forty-one countries in seven and a half years have been unable to accomplish? And what the British and the Soviets were unable to accomplish before that?"
