Journals - US' Role in Afghanistan, Iraq and Pakistan
US' Role in Afghanistan, Iraq and Pakistan Videoconference 
US' Role in Afghanistan, Iraq and Pakistan Videoconference 

To commemorate Veteran's Day this year, Global Nomads Group hosted a program on the US' Role in Afghanistan, Iraq and Pakistan.  Their guest speaker was Marcela Gaviria, an award-winning filmmaker with RAINmedia in NYC.  She has produced documentaries for PBS FRONTLINE.  In fact, we watched some of her documentaries in preparation for this videoconference. 

CITVC prepared for this conference by creating three class groups, one dedicated to researching one of the countries in this conference.  One issue that came up during this videoconference was about sending more troops to Afghanistan.  CITVC feels that is it necessary to send more troops in order to win and the current request by General McChrystal of 40,000 is probably not going to be enough.  This issue sparked debate among the participating schools. 

US' Role in Afghanistan, Iraq and Pakistan Videoconference 
We agree with Senator Kit Bond of Missouri, who said:  "It is critical that the President listen to commanders on the ground, not the ever-changing political winds in Washington.  The President needs to provide General McChrystal with the troops he needs to bring American troops home in victory and to put Afghanistan on a road to peace."
