A Primer

About The Book

Compact, concise, and jargon-free primer that answers all the basic questions and explains the various aspects of the war in Afghanistan. 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 Obamas plan and escalation of US troop presence in Afghanistan work? In this easy-to-read volume of frequently asked questions (FAQs), analysts David Wildman and Phyllis Bennis examine a wide range of key issues regarding the U.S. war in Afghanistan.
