The Afghanistan war has failed

Posted in Uncategorized by fartashphoto on October 21, 2010

The Wall Street Journal reported that Karzai on April told local officials that the Taliban could gain strength if the United States doesn’t stop meddling and even suggested he would join with them if his government doesn’t support him in taking control of the United Nation’s election watchdog in his country.

Afghan President Hamid Karzai has been in talks with high-level Taliban members, but the effort has failed to yield “practical reconciliation” or the “resolution of many issues,” a senior U.S. defense official said early this month.

“We don’t think the Taliban believe that they’re losing to the degree that they’d come to terms in large numbers. Without question, they’re hurting. We have it on good information that they’re feeling the pressure. Just not enough,” the official told CNN.

A Taliban spokesman has told CNN that the group was not interested in peace talks. Zabiuhullah Mujahed, the spokesman, said the group had no representative in the alleged negotiations in Kabul.

Peace negotiations would not happen until the Afghan government met the Taliban’s precondition to withdraw foreign forces from the country and allow Taliban figures in government, the spokesman said.

Today also Afghan Jirga said we’ll give anything if you (high-level Taliban members) come back: housing, job, money …

U.S. and NATO had been present in Afghanistan for 9 months and now I’m sorry to say they’ve lost the War against Taliban. The first reason is Bin Laden which they couldn’t find until now and the other thing is they couldn’t destroy Taliban, as a militant terrorist group.
