Afghanistan and Next, on Midrats

This week we will have a wide-ranging discussion. We have the war with us in Afghanistan that is winding down one phase, and the global security environment in front of us.

What is going on now, and what are the options in the near and medium term that the national security decision makers need to make on budget priorities and strategic direction?

This Sunday, 08 JUL from 5-6pm EST, join EagleOne and me with our guest for the full hour, retired US Army Colonel, Dr. Joseph J. Collins, Professor of National Security Strategy at National War College. He also served as the Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Stability Operations, a Senior Fellow at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, where he did research on economic sanctions, military culture, and national security policy.

Dr. Collins's many publications include books and articles on the Soviet war in Afghanistan, Operation Desert Storm, contemporary U.S. military culture, defense transformation, and homeland defense. including his book, Understanding War in Afghanistan. He writes frequently for Armed Forces Journal and the national security experts' blog of the National Journal.
