Perhaps the greatest credit owed to this book is that; it does not only narrate the military operational events and their significance in winning the war against the Taliban’s resurgence in Afghanistan war, but gives elaborate insights into what would cost the USA victory in the war, from both the internal military structures and the external perspectives, and then settles on giving a solution to such problems. While the army, the security and intelligence officers on the ground had managed to strike into the core of the Taliban safe havens both in Afghanistan and across the border to Pakistan, it is the application of flawed policies that the USA military top officials sought to impose on the ground operations, that eventually saw the gains already made by the officers on the ground watered down, and a war almost worn turning into a complete failure (Shaffer, 2010). ...
a governmental redress of grievances was espoused by the US constitution to be a channel through which an individual who feels that there are some aspect that requires the government to pay attention to and even resolve, then, any individual or party in the USA can petition the government to address them, without any prohibitions.
