On the next Your Call, we'll have a conversation with Jonathan Steele, Guardian columnist and author of <em>Ghosts of Afghanistan: The Haunted Battleground</em>. Why is the United States spending $100 billion a year occupying the poorest country in the world? Steele, who has reported from Afghanistan for 30 years, writes, "I saw the blunders the Soviets made in the 80s and have watched most of them repeated in recent years." He says the only way out is through negotiations, but US military commanders don't use the word 'negotiate.' So what does that mean for the future of the United States' involvement and the future of Afganistan? It's Your Call with Rose Aguilar and you.
