ABSTRACT
This article presents the author's views regarding the U.S. counterinsurgency plan in Afghanistan against the Taliban. He notes that the strategy was embraced by President Barack Obama's administration and the U.S. military in Afghanistan following the U.S. alleged success in reducing violence in Iraq in 2007. The author asserts that it is wrong to associate the Iraq counterinsurgency with Afghanistan because the two cases have no comparable history and only promises disaster. He also mentions that escalating more troops in the country could not fix the problems of the Afghans.
