OBAMA’S WARS IN
AFGHANISTAN AND PAKISTAN:
New challenges for the US Antiwar Movement
As US troops depart Iraq’s cities, President Obama and the Democratic Congress have now escalated troop deployments and military operations in Afghanistan and Pakistan, targeting the Taliban and Al Qaeda with no end in sight.
How should we interpret US engagement in these (two very different) countries, and how should the Antiwar Movement respond to this undiminished continuation of the “war on terror”?
