What are We Trying to Accomplish in Afghanistan?

I have just read What Chance for Afghanistan? which reviews three of the latest books about the place. If all of the writing about Afghanistan (by Americans) were stacked in one place it would make an imposing pile.

This reviewer is saying that making Afghanistan a modern state is nearly impossible – but we should try anyway!

Because, as an expert on the place (he is a professor at Georgetown University in Qatar) – his services would be invaluable.
