Toughing it out in Afghanistan

Author: Michael E O'Hanlon; Hassina Sherjan; Brookings Institution.
Publisher: Washington, D.C. : Brookings Institution Press, ©2010.
Edition/Format:   eBook : Document : EnglishView all editions and formats
Summary:
Is Afghanistan another Vietnam, a quagmire that the United States should escape as soon as possible? Or is it a crucial war than can and must be won? The authors acknowledge current difficulties in Afghanistan but also explicate how the war-torn country can emerge as a stable sovereign nation, free from the yoke of the Taliban and al Qaeda.
