The Staggers 21 January 2010 In this week's New Statesman: Afghanistan The unwinnable war. Next Labour leader. Why the US right hates Haiti Sign UpGet the New Statesman\'s Morning Call email. Sign-up In this week's issue of the New Statesman, we look ahead to the London summit on Afghanistan and explain why the war remains unwinnable. Rodric Braithwaite, our man in Moscow during the Soviet invasion, offers the long view. And the Foreign Secretary, David Miliband, sets out his hopes for the summit. Elsewhere, we poll the great and the good of the left and ask: who should be Labour's next leader? Melvyn Bragg, Roy Hattersley, David Marquand, Clare Short, Billy Bragg, Charlie Whelan and others give their verdict. Meanwhile, Andrew Stephen explains why the US right wing hates Haiti and Mehdi Hasan dissects David Cameron's foreign policy. Also don't miss Peter Wilby on Rod Liddle, class and Harold Pinter's poetry; nor Will Self on urinating in public. The issue is on sale now, or you can subscribe via the website.
