Rethink Afghanistan Debate Part III

Rethink Afghanistan Debate Part III

The Nation‘s Katrina vanden Heuvel explores the similarities between the wars in Vietnam and Afghanistan in the last of a three-part debate.


The Nation‘s Katrina vanden Heuvel details the similarities
between the wars in Afghanistan and Vietnam in a debate with Lawrence
Korb, senior fellow at the Center for American Progress. She
argues that, like in Vietnam, American forces fuel anti-Americanism,
could win every battle yet lose the war and the cost of waging war could
drain resources needed to rebuild our country.
