The Obama War in Afghanistan

The Afghan campaign has already become The Obama War, says political analyst Mikhail Troitsky from the International Relations department at Moscow State University.

“There is a great deal of prestige and political capital that President Obama has invested into the success in Afghanistan, and Russia is being helpful exactly where the US and, personally, President Barack Obama needs that kind of help,” pointed out Mikhail Troitsky, commenting on Russia's decision to allow the U.S. to transit military cargo to Afghanistan through Russian territory.
