Abstract
As our nation begins its eighth year of war in Afghanistan, costing a quarter billion dollars and countless American, Afghani, and others' lives, we must ask: will another eight years of U.S. occupation with 60,000 more troops supporting a Parliament with warlords and druglords usher peace and democracy to that tragic land?
