Afghanistan

In Afghanistan, the U.S., as a member of NATO, is engaged in several operations with the aim to stop the Taliban insurgency, support the Afghan National Security Forces and facilitate improvements in governance and socio-economic development.

The NATO troops recently sparked the ire of many Afghanis when the forces burned several copies of the Quran along with other items being disposed of. The news caused a rash of protests and attacks on NATO bases in the area.
