Sarwar's opinions, conversations, and guest editorials
Polaris, the North Star has been used for centuries by sailors to find one’s location within the cosmos and to chart a passage to safe harbor. I’d like to think that my iteration of Polaris might serve as a guide to help make sense of today’s rapidly shifting geopolitical and economic changes, and help policy makers safely navigate these tumultuous times.
The United States decisively terminated its 20 year long war in Afghanistan on August 31, 2021. In the world of geopolitics it was a seminal event, for many reasons: It was another military defeat for the world’s richest country with the world’s most powerful and well equipped military, at the hands of the Taliban, an army only in name that fights in sandals. A humiliating ending for America, to say the least.
While it is too early to figure out what this defeat means for America, for Afghanistan, China, India, and Pakistan–the key players in that part of the world, it is not too early to state that the impact will be profound.
PolarisLive joins this geopolitically, and economically critical dialogue in our October 2021 lineup featuring experts from the U.S., India, and Pakistan.
