ABSTRACT
The article presents the author's views regarding the effort of U.S. President Barack Obama's administration to end the Afghan War. Richard Holbrooke, U.S. envoy to Pakistan and Afghanistan, believes that the said war will outlast the Vietnam War, considered as the longest war in U.S. history. In the author's opinion, the Afghan War is one of the things that the U.S. government can not solve merely by words and aspirations.
