Several years has passes since the breaking out the US-Afghanistan war. It is such a deep impression that the US declared war against this turbulent nation, which is believed to be the source and base of terrorist attacks.

In responding this call, president Obama showed his concern. He hoped that more effective work can be directed to the destroying of the network of the terrorist base. The policy that security should be strengthened at the cost of sacrificing our own peaceful arouses heated discussion one time more in the U.S. and NATO ally.
