    The topic and agenda for our September discussion are: 



    What issues does the Afghanistan failure raise for the West (and the UK in particular) and do we need to amend our strategy and foreign policy as a result?



    • What are our emotional reactions and feelings?
    • What are the main potential alternative outcomes for Afghanistan?
    • What were the mistakes that got us here?
    • What specific issues arise for NATO and the West?
    • Do additional or different issues arise for the UK?
    • What issues arise for the UN?
    • As a consequence what credible strategies should we pursue for the future?
    • How should we amend our document Foreign Affairs and the UK's Future Role in the World?


    Do input any thoughts you have that would contribute to discussion.
