Australia’s War in Afghanistan

The War in Afghanistan refers to the intervention in the Afghan Civil War by the United States and its allies, following the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, to dismantle Al-Qaeda, the Islamic terrorist organization led by Osama bin Laden and to remove from power the Taliban, an Islamic fundamentalist regime led by Mullah Mohammed Omar, which at the time controlled 90% of Afghanistan and hosted Al-Qaeda leadership. Since the invasion in 2001 the presence of coalition forces there has been heavily criticized and the question the rest on everybody’s mind is “Was it all worth it?”
