Avoiding the Wars That Never End


By George Friedman

Last week, U.S. President Barack Obama announced that the United
States would transfer the primary responsibility for combat operations
in Afghanistan to the Afghan military in the coming months, a major step

designed to block jihadists from taking control of the country and
creating a base of operations in France's former African colonies.
The two events are linked in a way that transcends the issue of
Islamist insurgency and points to a larger geopolitical shift. The
United States

It's up to each individual to believe in what they want i More..
