Talk to the Editor: Inside Afghanistan

The Monitor's Ben Arnoldy recently was embedded with a marine unit in Afghanistan's embattled Helmand Province. Find out what that's like -- and also get a briefing on the war and other developments in South Asia.

Join us Thursday at 1 pm EST for a conversation with Monitor South Asia correspondent Ben Arnoldy about Afghanistan, Pakistan, and India. Ben was recently embedded with US forces in Afghanistan. What's it like to go on patrol with the marines? Ben knows. We'll also talk abut the military situation in Afghanistan amid the surge of forces, conditions in the cross-border region with Pakistan, where the Taliban and al Qaeda are based, and take a look at India. It promises to be a wide-ranging and interesting discussion
