U.S. Prepares For New Decade Of War In Asia
by Rick Rozoff*

Using the staged September 11, 2001 attacks as a pretext to invade Afghanistan, Washington is about to enter the eleventh year of its longest war in history. After Indochina, this war unequivocally designates Asia as the center of U.S. geopolitical strategy and the Pentagon’s main 21st century war front. According to Rick Rozoff, the U.S. will still be in Afghanistan well into the middle of the next decade and possibly much longer as military pressure on the broader Asian region continues to escalate.
