Afghanistan at CFR

The Council on Foreign Relations has several new pieces on Afghanistan.

In an interview, Stephen Biddle argues that the US needs to focus more on governance.

From Foreign Affairs, Michael Semple and Fontini Christia discuss “flipping” the Taliban.

They also have a good backgrounder on the Afghan Security Forces. This isn’t new, but it is interesting.

One response to “Afghanistan at CFR

  1. Steven Biddle says: “We have some important advantages in this war relative to other counterinsurgents in Afghanistan, especially the Soviet Union. ”
    I take it that the Soviets were fighting the warlords. Is that true? And should we also be fighting the warlords?
