America’s Disastrous Occupation of Afghanistan Turns 17
October 12, 2018

America has now passed the 17-year mark in Afghanistan. The blame falls primarily on three successive presidents who embraced a quixotic crusade to remake Afghanistan. In contrast to his predecessors, Donald Trump seemed to understand how hopeless the Afghanistan war is.
