Tonight we are joined by Robert Cunningham, photographer who has chronicled our US troops serving in Afghanistan, from the moment of their deployment to the battlefield to their heartfelt return.
Cunningham has photographed the five living US presidents, nine heads of state, 12 prime ministers, numerous astronauts, celebrities, and Fortune 500 CEOs. But his proudest moment in a ten-year photography career came when he photographed US troops serving in Afghanistan. He took 55,000 photos and had a selection of the best published in Afghanistan: On the Bounce.

The Law And The Lawless Part 2: What Is To Be Done?
Holder announces task force on 'homegrown' terrorists
White House Overrode Internal Objections To Taliban Prisoner Release
Just when you think you have seen it all, the Obama Administration pulls another boneheaded move. When it seems like there is a war in almost every part of the world, what does the Obama administration do? Tell a great number of our troops in Afghanistan, you are being let go! That’s right fired, laid off, canned, all while they are still on the battlefield. The Kremlin now certainly feels that Russia is the dominant world power, and ISIS certainly feels empowered. High school students studying Civics can draft a better Foreign Policy. Where is the dominant media, why are they supporting the destruction of our status as a world power? Is the end of America Near? What do you think? Join Jimmy and Bernie today at 7:00PM EDT as they discuss this and much more on Let’s Talk Justice America, on the Blog Talk Radio Network.
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.

The way things are going in Iraq and Afghanistan, the prospects for lasting victory are fading with worse long-term consequences than Vietnam. The human cost of the Vietnam War was far greater than it has been in Iraq and Afghanistan, but I choose to believe that our warriors did not die in vain in Vietnam because we ultimately won the Cold War of which the wars in Korea and Vietnam were part. Still, we lost the Vietnam War and suffered lasting consequences as a result. What's at stake in the Middle East is greater than what was at stake in Vietnam.
