Conflicts persist in Afghanistan, India and Pakistan

The U.S. plans to increase its troop presence in Afghanistan, while India’s heated rhetoric put the Pakistani air force on high alert this week.

Counter-terrorism expert Roger Carstens, a fellow at the Center for a New American Security, speaks to Daljit Daliwal about the potential for translating military tactics from Iraq to Afghanistan and considers whether or not India is on the verge of a strike against Pakistan.

The USA should not accelerate the afghanistan war by adding more troops. We will not be successful using such an approach. We need to learn history’s lessons and not follow a course in that country that has not worked before and will not work now. We need to explore how effective we can be if we use a humanitarian approach, rather than the warlike approach which has so often failed
