Politics has obviously been heavy on everyone’s mind recently. Taxes, immigration, healthcare, it never ends. In my mind, we are not paying enough attention to the most important issue out there: the wars in the middle east, which have caused death and destruction on a massive scale over an absurd length of time.
Scott Horton’s Fool’s Errand: Time to End the War in Afghanistan, is the absolute best resource to learn about the United State’s involvement in Afghanistan and the surrounding area. If you have ever wanted to be more informed on the motivations on the US entering those wars, the history behind Osama bin Laden and the attacks on 9/11, or anything that has happened since then - this is the book for you.
Seriously, I can’t recommend this book highly enough. It is time for the us to stand up and put a stop to these wars. Whether you are a Republican, Democrat, or anarchist like me, there is one thing that can and should unite us all: ending these unjust wars.
