A remote country ..
a proud, strong, religious people,
a never-ending battleground in history,
a frequently-attacked but never-conquered nation,
a region with so many problems - and - a difficult way of life.

Afghanistan
remained restless on the sidelines
until a decisive dark day .. September 11, 2001.

Afghanistan and the world suddenly changed.

In the distance,
the drums of war now beat .. again.

Afghanistan stands
squarely at the crossroads of mankind's history.

What happens in this remote country
will reverberate throughout the world,
in the days to come,
in ways .. no one can foretell.

The Afghanistan Reference Desk
was created to help motivated individuals and the world
learn about this troubled country,
and understand its present strategic place in the destiny of man ...
