Afghanistan: The Perfect Failure, shatters the myth
that the war in Afghanistan is the “good war.” There
is nothing good about this war. Afghanistan is riddled
with corruption, from top to bottom. Offi cial corruption,
fueled by the unchecked opium trade, is what’s killing
Afghanistan, not the Taliban – not al Qaeda. At best, the
Taliban represents a third-rate insurgency. However, a
coalition of well-meaning nations is contributing billions
of dollars and thousands of soldiers fi ghting the wrong
enemy in the wrong way.
