The Nightly News Without Brian Williams

Hello All,

This blog is all about world politics and foreign policy. I am a student in Washington D.C., and I'm hoping this forum becomes a good place to discuss the big issues that are facing our world today. I'm not pretending to be an expert, just looking to learn more and help others do the same.

Thanks,
Elias
From Boston.com’s Big Picture photo series. US Marines from 3rd Battalion 9th Marines Kodiak Company walk during a patrol at Kote Tazagul area in Marjah district in Helmand Province on May 24, 2011. A young Marine gives an Afghan boy a high-five as he passes him on the street. The counterinsurgency strategy that the United States has been pursuing for the last 3 years depends on building a sense of trust between national security forces and local communities.
