Afghanistan: Graveyard of Empires
Saturdays, 1:00-2:30 Central
A critical 3-part analysis of America's longest war: • Ronald Reagan, the Soviet occupation, and the birth of jihad • Al-Qaeda, Osama bin Laden, the Taliban, and 9/11 • Four presidents — from invasion to exit: politics, lies, hopes, failures, and inevitability.
We'll explore the root causes of the war in Afghanistan, the key players, and the turning points.
In the process, we'll speculate on the implications of events in 2020 and 2021 for Afghanistan, the region, and the United States.
