The United States and its allies have been fighting the Taliban and Al-Qaeda in Afghanistan for a decade in a war that either side could still win. While a gradual drawdown has begun significant numbers of US combat troops will remain in Afghanistan until at least 2014 perhaps longer depending on the situation on the ground. Given the realities of the Taliban’s persistence and the desire of US policymakers—and the public—to find a way out what can and should be the goals of the US and its allies in Afghanistan? Afghan Endgames boldly pursues several strands of thought suggesting that a strong legitimate central government is far from likely to emerge in Kabul; that fewer coalition forces used in creative ways may have better effects on the ground than a larger more conventional presence; and that even though Pakistan should not be pushed too hard so as to avoid sparking social chaos there Afghanistan’s other neighbors can and should be encouraged to become more actively involved. The volume’s editors conclude that while there may never be complete peace in Afghanistan a self-sustaining security system able to restore order swiftly in the wake of violence is attainable.Printed Pages: 248.
