SORT BY Relevancy
Lost to many whose news sources in the USA consists of the major newspapers and the standard networks, for most of the last dozen+ years, the conflict in Afghanistan has not been a USA-Centric battle; it has been a NATO run operation.
When the Commander of the International Security Assistance Force has been an American 4-star, the visuals can be misleading.
For most of the last decade, American forces were dominate in only one region of Afghanistan, the east. Other NATO nations from Italy/Spain in the west, Germany in the North, and Commonwealth nations and the Dutch in the south.
More important than the actual numbers involved, it was the Rules of Engagement, caveats, and the fickle nature of national politics that drove what effects those forces had on the ground.
The good, the bad, and the ugly of modern coalition warfare was all in view for all in Afghanistan, but outside small circles, has yet to be fully discussed.
Our guest for the full hour will be Stephen Saideman.
Stephen holds the Paterson Chair in International Affairs at Carleton University’s Norman Paterson School of International Affairs. He has written The Ties That Divide: Ethnic Politics, Foreign Policy and International Conflict and For Kin or Country: Xenophobia, Nationalism and War (with R. William Ayres) and NATO in Afghanistan: Fighting Together, Fighting Alone (with David Auerswald), and other work on nationalism, ethnic conflict, civil war, and civil-military relations. Prof. Saideman spent 2001-02 on the U.S. Joint Staff working in the Strategic Planning and Policy Directorate as part of a Council on Foreign Relations International Affairs Fellowship. He writes online at OpenCanada.org, Political Violence at a Glance, Duck of Minerva and his own site (saideman.blogspot.com). He also tweets too much at @smsaideman.

Obama forces military couple to move their wedding so he can golf. He did apologize to them. Well, that was awful nice of him.

Our military has been fighting for the last 10 years and the burden they are shouldering is unlike anything we have seen before. The political class who voted for these wars have been unable or unwilling to get our troops the care they deserve. This has been a tragedy of epic proportions for the people who have riskecd their lives to serve their nation and depend on treatment when they return.
We will be talking about 2 articles in particular, the first one that deals with a Marine unit that has suffered numerous suicides since the conclusion of their deployment, http://www.nytimes.com/2015/09/20/us/marine-battalion-veterans-scarred-by-suicides-turn-to-one-another-for-help.html as well as the conflicts in Afghanistan and the scandals involving the sexual abuse of young boys.http://mobile.nytimes.com/2015/09/21/world/asia/us-soldiers-told-to-ignore-afghan-allies-abuse-of-boys.html?_r=0
We hope this show will shed the light of understanding upon the problem within our society when we ask young men and women to go to war.
There is great book that deals with this subject at length if you want to know more: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1250056020?creativeASIN=1250056020&linkCode=w00&linkId=UTSGLZNHUIGRBNGG&ref_=as_sl_pc_qf_sp_asin_til&tag=ejerbajapeso-20
