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.

The Islamic regime smuggles 22 tons of explosive to Afghanistan

Posted in Uncategorized by fartashphoto on October 7, 2010

Afghan police said Wednesday they had seized 22 tons of explosives stashed in boxes marked “food, toys and kitchenware” that were imported from neighboring Iran.

Police Chief Abdul Jabar Purdel said a suspect was detained after the devices were discovered in 337 boxes in a 40-foot shipping container moved from Iran into Afghanistan over a bridge connecting the two countries, CNN reported.

Nimruz province, in Afghanistan’s southwestern corner, borders Iran and Pakistan.

Iran has been attempting to smuggle shipments of weapons into Afghanistan as part of an increased effort to interfere with coalition operations, a senior U.S. Defense Department official said earlier this year.

Bombs made from old ammunitions and explosives are the main weapon used by the Taliban and other insurgents fighting against the Western-backed Afghan government and Western troops, and cause the bulk of military casualties.

While Tehran consistently denies supporting factions opposed to the Afghan government, U.S. and coalition troops have found evidence of Iranian weapons inside Afghanistan in seized caches or in the aftermath of attacks, CNN said.

We have a shared interest in helping countries like Afghanistan, Kosovo and Iraq to stand on their own feet again, and in preventing countries like Somalia, Yemen and Sudan from slipping deeper into chaos. And we all are seriously concerned about Iran’s nuclear ambition — and about the instability this could cause in a region that is pivotal for global stability and security.
