Write an essay of analysis and opinion concerning Afghanistan and U.S. policy toward Afghanistan.
Write about the U.S. war in Afghanistan, the current peace talks, and the possibility that
additional U.S. troops might be withdrawn next year under President Biden, and in general what you think
might happen next year or what you think the U.S. should do. However it is also OK to write a more historical
essay, maybe just about some of what has happened so far in the Afghan War, or maybe just about the rise of
the Taliban, or if you wish you could even go back and write about the Soviet war in Afghanistan, and U.S.
involvement at that time. The only requirement is that your essay have something to do with Afghanistan and
U.S. policy toward Afghanistan, in any time period.
