ABSTRACT
The article looks at the challenges posed by Afghanistan and Iraq to U.S. and North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) forces. A review of the Afghan strategy noted some progress in security and governance across the country, but such progress could be reversible. In Iraq, U.S. troops continue to die following the departure of the last U.S. combat brigade in Iraq after 7.5 years of combat.
