Major internal conflict has plagued Afghanistan for four decades. The U.S., for its part, has conducted military operations in the country nearly continuously since 9/11. Today, war with the Taliban persists, and tensions between the U.S. and Pakistan have gradually deteriorated. As his time in office drew to a close, President Obama limited further withdrawal of U.S. troops from Afghanistan. The incoming administration has a choice: will it maintain the status quo, completely reverse the Obama administration drawdown or withdraw completely? Does the U.S. face a no win situation in Afghanistan and Pakistan?
Discussion Leader: Donna Carty (and there will be a Guest Speaker)

Meeting Location: Community Room, North Collier Government Services Center, 2335 Orange Blossom Dr., Naples, FL  34109
The building is next to the CC Library HQ.
