5.0 out of 5 stars Highly Recommended!, April 17, 2012
This review is from: Pakistan on the Brink: The Future of America, Pakistan, and Afghanistan (Hardcover)
As the United States is preparing to withdraw from a war with no focus, what is it facing? The author gives us an insight into the possibilities after an escalation that saw the country, and surrounding, areas erupt into tensions beyond imagination. Rashid looks at the war and its prominence into something that was fast in growing, inviting to the dissidents, confusing to the country's neighbors and downright disappointing to coalition partners with regards to successes.

Rashid looks at the descending country with reality and predictability. Just what will the Taliban, jihadists, Al Queda, and other revolutionaries do once the US and its partners leave? Will the country be stable or return to its pre-war past? What the author includes in this text is brilliant insight into the land of his ancestry to give the reader a view of post - US Afghanistan, without the protection it needs now.
