  1. “The Ides of August”: With President Eisenhower’s warning in mind and reference to the realities of Korea, Viet Nam and Iraq, can a realist believe that the current Afghan condition was unintended?

      Yes. No one of no faction set out to deliberately ruin Afghanistan.

      The idea that America could turn Afghanistan or Iraq into a liberal democratic state by force of arms is the problem.
