ALLIES Weekly Discussion - The Future of Afghanistan

The U.S. signed a historic peace deal with the Taliban on February 29, nearly two decades after the U.S. invaded Afghanistan in 2001 with the goal of defeating the Taliban. However, recent U.S. airstrikes on March 4 and the history of the Taliban's role in Afghanistan leave many people wondering how feasible it is for the U.S. to maintain this deal. Join ALLIES this Wednesday, March 11, as we discuss what the future of Afghanistan will look like in the coming months and years.

As usual, the meeting will be held in Braker 118 from 8pm to 9pm.
