ABSTRACT
The author responds to comments made by author Jason Sigger about British member of Parliament Rory Stewart over the Afghanistan war in the July 1, 2010 issue of "Der Spiegel." Stewart said it needs an anthropology of all countries to acknowledge that foreigners have limitations in fighting the Taliban. Sigger noted that the major flaw in the Democratic party is the similarity between the objectives of neoconservative idealism and liberal internationalism. The author claims that the Vietnam war failed to improve the flawed politics of security.
