Global Conversations: Afghanistan & Pakistan

The U.S. has been conducting military operations in Afghanistan nearly continuously since 9/11; meanwhile, its relations with Pakistan, a key partner in these efforts, have gradually deteriorated. President Trump's recently announced plans suggest no end in sight for the 16-year war and raise many of the same questions as his predecessor's approach: what constitutes success in Afghanistan, and how much are the U.S. and its allies willing to pay for it?
