Summary
The Obama administration has implemented a significant change in policy toward Afghanistan and Pakistan. More troops and a new commander have been sent to Afghanistan, and the United States has increased its level of support and aid to Pakistan. To many, this means we are becoming further entrenched in an open-ended quagmire where any military solution will ultimately fail. Others question if it matters to the United States whether Afghanistan has a strong central government or a democratic one. While most agree that it should not become a terrorist haven, opinions differ on how this should be accomplished: more troops, covert operations, diplomacy? And what of Pakistan? We cannot allow its nuclear arsenal to fall into the hands of radicals, but President Obama has ruled out putting U.S. troops on the ground. The task of rooting out Al Qaeda and Taliban militants falls to Pakistan's army, which has, until recently, supported these groups as a hedge against future conflict with India. How much tolerance does the United States have for the long road ahead in Afghanistan and Pakistan? Can the United States succeed in this region, and how would we even define success?
