Program Title: Defeat or Victory? The War on Afghanistan (2001-2021)
Description: This week on the Global Research News Hour, on the 20th anniversary of the launching of the war on Afghanistan, we will probe the dynamics of the relationship between the US and Afghanistan, and the look ahead to what it will mean in the larger cold war with Russia and China..
Our first guest Retired Professor of Geography John Ryan will speak about his visit there in 1978, how the Islamic extremist threat was actually manufactured by the US and how the recent withdrawal of US forces was a result of their 20 year occupation. Next we’ll hear from international economist Professor Rodrique Tremblay about the failure of the US mission and the consequences for the recent Democratic president who ended it. Finally, Professor Michel Chossudovsky comes on to the show explaining that the withdrawal of US soldiers is not the fundamental defeat it appears to be.
