An Endless War: Getting Out of Afghanistan
Sat January 4, 2020 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm EST
Movie screening with discussion
“The conflict in Afghanistan has become the longest and costliest war in U. S. history.”
Nearly 18 years after US forces invaded Afghanistan in the wake of 9/11, the Afghan conflict has become America’s longest and costliest war. Yet today, the Taliban insurgents are stronger and control more territory than ever before.
Featuring former commanding officers of the US military, combat veterans, political analysts and American and Afghan peace activists, this documentary deconstructs the reasons why the the war has failed and has dragged on for so long, while also offering solutions on how the United States can exit Afghanistan and not make this an endless war.
A one-hour documentary film directed by Bob Coen and produced by Jean-Louis Bourgeois. More info about the film: https://endlesswar.org/
