Is Afghanistan another Vietnam, a quagmire that the United States should escape as soon as possible? Or is it a crucial war than can and must be won? The daily news is sobering, with its continued attacks on NATO troops and a resurgent Taliban. In Toughing It Out in Afghanistan, however, Michael O'Hanlon and Hassina Sherjan show that all is not lost-far from it. The authors acknowledge current difficulties in Afghanistan but also explicate how the war-torn country can emerge as a stable sovereign nation, free from the yoke of the Taliban and al Qaeda.
