Elizabeth Esty on War & Peace

 

 


Speed up the drawdown of troops in Afghanistan

As situations have changed in the Middle East, our military service members and military families deserve leaders and a national security policy worthy of their sacrifice--and a willingness to reevaluate the challenges we face and strategies required to meet them.

With the removal of Osama bin Laden, it is time to reexamine our objectives and timetables in Afghanistan. The last 10 years of war in Afghanistan and Iraq have proved very costly in dollars and in lives. It is time to speed up the drawdown of troops in Afghanistan, while still maintaining quick-strike, mobile forces in the region. At the same time, we must pressure the Afghan government to root out corruption, as well as step up efforts to protect human rights, particularly those of women and girls. We must not lose the tremendous progress that has been made in educating women in Afghanistan and elsewhere in the region. It is also vitally important that we continue to bring our troops home from Iraq and conclude our mission there.

A nuclear-armed Iran poses a major threat

Containing Iran: Iran continues to pursue nuclear weapons and promote discord in the region. A nuclear-armed Iran poses a major threat to Israel and the United States. We must vigorously enforce sanctions against Iran, work with our allies to build international pressure, and be vigilant in the face of this threat.
