President Obama announced his 10 year plan for Afghanistan. It includes an additional 21,000 U.S. military forces deployed in Iraq and diplomatic engagement of Pakistan. He is still trying to force political and social change through the Pentagon.
We have a better plan: focus on diplomatic cooperation and humanitarian aid, mitigate civilian causalities by scaling back military force.
The United Nations, U.S. and British generals, peace groups, and 19 members of Congress agree:
“The war in Afghanistan cannot be won militarily and success is only possible through political means including dialogue between all relevant parties.”
