and nearly 2,400 were killed.

Why These Veterans Are Demanding an End to War in Afghanistan        Video        NYT Opinion        11 November 2019

 

This Veterans Day,

about 200,000 American troops

are being deployed abroad.

 

In the Video Op-Ed above,

the Eurasia Group Foundation,

which seeks to make public debates

about United States foreign policy more inclusive,

interviewed five veterans from diverse backgrounds

who oppose continuing the war.

 

These veterans,

who served in Afghanistan

or were part of the support

apparatus for the Afghan war,

say the United States should withdraw

all troops from Afghanistan.

 

Their harrowing stories from the battlefield

shed light on what they see

as an unwinnable conflict in a foreign land.

 

There is, these veterans say,

no point in continuing an 18-year war

whose outcome will be the same no matter

how many more American troops are killed.

 

In February,

The New York Times editorial board

called for an end to the Afghan war,

a marked shift from its yearslong policy of support.

 

This summer,

a Pew survey found that the majority of Americans

— and the majority of veterans —

think the war “has not been worth fighting.”

 

The trend in public opinion seems increasingly clear.

 

But American leaders

remain reluctant to make major changes.

After 13 years fighting a war in Afghanistan,

British troops have handed over control of Camp Bastion

and ended their combat role.

 

The war has claimed the lives of thousands of civilians,

military personnel and Taliban insurgents

and cost billions of pounds.

 

This is the story of the Afghanistan war in numbers.

 

Estimates for civilian deaths

are from costofwar.org UN records began in 2009

Afghanistan war        2001-2020

 

Operation Enduring Freedom

began on Oct. 7, 2001,

with an American bombing campaign

against Al Qaeda and the Taliban.

 

On the ground,

American SpecialOperations forces

teams linked up with Afghan militias

opposed to the Taliban,

mainly the Northern Alliance,

to drive the Taliban from power.

 

The capital, Kabul,

fell in mid-November,

along with the Taliban stronghold

of Kandahar.

 

In December,

Osama bin Laden,

Al Qaeda’s leader,

escaped to Pakistan

through the mountains

around Tora Bora.

 

That same month,

an interim Afghan government

led by Hamid Karzai was installed.

 

A United Nations

Security Council resolution

established the International

Security Assistance Force,

or ISAF,

a military coalition led

by the United States.
