This is a compact and knowledgeable briefing on and about the war in Afghanistan. It includes dedicated mailing and e-mail campaign to targeted military interest media & organizations. The Bush administration answered the terror attacks of September 11, 2001 with what it called the 'global war on terror', beginning with the assault and invasion of Afghanistan and then with the invasion and occupation of Iraq. As more and more Americans joined the opposition to the Iraq war, for many, Afghanistan remained 'the good war'. But was Afghanistan ever a 'good war'? And will President Obama's plan and escalation of US troop presence in Afghanistan work? In this easy-to-read volume of 'frequently asked questions', analysts David Wildman and Phyllis Bennis examine a wide range of key issues regarding the war in Afghanistan. What was the history of the U.S. in Afghanistan before 9/11? What role does NATO play in the war? Do Afghans want the U.S. troops to stay in their country? Who are the Taliban? What is al-Qaeda? And, finally, what are the steps needed to end the war? -- Description from http://bookshop.blackwell.co.uk (Nov. 3, 2011).
