Neo-konservative krigshøg, Richard Haass, siger det nu åbent. USA kan ikke vinde i Afghanistan.

Men hans løsning er blot at forblive for at forhindre Taliban i at sejre.

Ingen omtanke på konsekvenser både for befolkningerne i USA og Afghanistan, men osse Vestens opfattelse rundt om i verden.

Hvem kan lide den slags brutale folk?
Det er især sjovt at se hans ønsketænkning om at Iran, Kina, Pakistan og Rusland (de fire lande kontroller al adgang til Afghanistan) skulle kunne lokkes over i USAs fold...

Har han set de konflikter USA dyrker med de stater?

Agonizing over Afghanistan: Project Syndicate

Citer:
After more than 17 years, the time has come to accept two important truths about the war in Afghanistan. The first is that there will be no military victory by the government and its American and NATO partners. Afghan forces, while better than they were, are not good enough and are unlikely ever to be capable of defeating the Taliban. This is not simply because government troops lack the unity and often the professionalism to prevail, but also because the Taliban are highly motivated and enjoy considerable backing at home and from Pakistan, which provides it critical support and sanctuary.
...
America’s policy in Afghanistan should be one that avoids the risks of a rapid, unconditional exit but also minimizes the costs of staying. To accomplish the latter would require trimming strategic ambitions. Although the US and its European partners cannot expect to win the war or broker a lasting peace, it should be possible to keep the government alive and carry on the fight against terrorists. Doing so would probably require keeping a few thousand troops deployed, continuing to provide intelligence, arms, and training to Afghan forces, and, in special situations, a readiness and ability to intervene narrowly but directly.

It would also help if the US both reoriented and stepped up its diplomatic engagement. Current efforts are focused on brokering an internal settlement with the Taliban. A more fruitful approach might be to convene Afghanistan’s six immediate neighbors (which include both China and Iran as well as Pakistan) and other actors, including Russia, India, and the EU, that have a stake in the country’s future. None has an interest in seeing Afghanistan become a haven for terrorism and drug production.

Er Trump igen ved at kunne sætte et flueben ved et valgløfte.?

https://www.nytimes.com/2019/01/26/w...w-nytimesworld


Citer:
Ryan Crocker, a former American ambassador to Afghanistan, said it was a rush for the exits.

“I can’t see this as anything more than an effort to put lipstick on what will be a U.S. withdrawal,” he said. Mr. Crocker said it reminded him of the Paris peace talks on Vietnam.

“By going to the table, we basically were telling the North Vietnamese and Viet Cong, ‘We surrender. We’re here just to work out the terms.’ I just cannot see this getting to any better place. We don’t have a whole lot of leverage here.”

Værd at tænke på når man hører diverse danske politikere kræven fortsat indsats. Hvad gør vi egentligt i de lande og hvorledes opfatter de lokale vores gerninger.


Et klassisk eksempel på udlændinge der undergraver deres egen målsætning. Ditto i Yemen hvor amerikanerne dræbe alle af hankøn ned til 12 års alderen i deres droneangreb, hvis de befinder sig i en kill-zone. Sjovt nok kender de lokale ikke til de zoner. Kun ved den nødvendige landstyrke og årtiers gang kan den slags projekter lykkes.

EXCLUSIVE: British army permitted shooting of civilians in Iraq and Afghanistan

Citer:
The British army operated rules of engagement in Iraq and Afghanistan that at times allowed soldiers to shoot unarmed civilians who were suspected of keeping them under surveillance, a Middle East Eye investigation has established.

The casualties included a number of children and teenage boys, according to several former soldiers interviewed by MEE.

Two former infantrymen allege that they and their fellow soldiers serving in southern Iraq were at one point told that they had permission to shoot anyone seen holding a mobile telephone, carrying a shovel, or acting in any way suspiciously.

En glimrende eksempel på at Vesten havde tabt efter 6 måneder i Afghanistan (jvf. van Creveld).

Amerikansk terrorangreb skaber stor opbakning blandt de lokale ramt af angrebet.

https://www.reuters.com/article/us-a...-idUSKCN1SD1IZ

Citer:
The Afghan defense ministry said coalition air strikes in three locations in the western province of Farah late on Sunday destroyed 68 Taliban drug labs and killed 150 insurgents, as part of an air campaign aimed at cutting off one of the movement’s key sources of revenues.

However Abdul Ghafoor Mujahid, the governor of Bakwa district, where the attacks took place, said many of those killed were civilians working in the labs. He said at least 45 civilians were killed in the strike, along with around 18 Taliban fighters. Several civilians in neighboring houses were wounded, he said.

“The civilians were hired by the Taliban to work in their heroin processing labs and were unfortunately killed during the air strikes,” Mujahid told Reuters.

Defense Ministry spokesman Qais Mangal denied any civilians were killed in the strikes in Farah, a remote and sparsely populated area where hundreds of police and soldiers have been killed in months of heavy fighting.
Når man læser overstående så er der i mine øjne ingen tvivl om at den lokale leder ved bedre hvor store tab der er og hvem der blev ramt. Ikke magthaverne i de fine kontorer i Kabul.



Om de seneste fredsforhandlinger så viser dette at det er USAs overgivelse der forhandles om. IKKE Talibans.

https://www.reuters.com/article/us-u...-idUSKCN1S90GU

Citer:
Zalmay Khalilzad, an Afghan-born U.S. diplomat, entered a sixth round of talks with the hardline Islamist group in Qatar this week in a bid to end America’s longest war.

“In our opening session, I underscored to the Talibs that the Afghan people, who are their brothers & sisters, want this war to end,” Khalilzad said in a tweet.

“It is time to put down arms, stop the violence, & embrace peace.”

Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid issued a series of sharp tweets in response.

“@US4AfghanPeace (Khalilzad’s twitter handle) should forget about the idea of us putting down our arms,” he said.

“Instead of such fantasies, he should drive the idea home (to the U.S.) about ending the use of force and incurring further human and financial losses for the decaying Kabul administration.”

He said the United States must stop repeating failed strategies while expecting different outcomes.

“It would be better if @US4AfghanPeace musters the courage to call a spade a spade, not a gardening tool & accept the current realities.”


Intense fighting continues across the country with the Taliban controlling or influencing more territory than at any point since their ouster at the hands of U.S.-led troops following the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks on the United States.

Sidste nyt om forhandlingerne om amerikansk overgivelse. Når først USA er ude kommer de ikke ind igen.

Exclusive: Secretary of State Pompeo Declines to Sign Risky Afghan Peace Deal

Citer:
But the deal doesn’t ensure several crucial things, those familiar with the discussions tell TIME. It doesn’t guarantee the continued presence of U.S. counterterrorism forces to battle al Qaeda, the survival of the pro-U.S. government in Kabul, or even an end to the fighting in Afghanistan. “No one speaks with certainty. None,” said an Afghan official taking part in briefings on the deal with Khalilzad. “It is all based on hope. There is no trust. There is no history of trust. There is no evidence of honesty and sincerity from the Taliban,” and intercepted communications “show that they think they have fooled the U.S. while the U.S. believes that should the Taliban cheat, they will pay a hefty price.”

Taliban vil ikke sminke liget nok til at Trump kan redde lidt ansigt. Behandlingen af den såkaldte afghanske regering fra USA viser jo at de blot er et Quislingestyre. De har ingen legitimitet i den brede befolkning.

Så simpelt kan det siges. Dog med den fejlagtige antagelse at en amerikansk indsat regering ville overleve.

Som 11. Semtember-kommissionen viste var Afghanistan uden betydning for angrebet. Det blev planlagt i tre byer, Karachi - Pakistan, Kuala Lumpur - Indonesian samt Hamborg - Tyskland. Den endelig træning fandt sted i USA.

We are not in Afghanistan to build a nation or satisfy bureaucratic imperatives. If the Afghans choose to live in the 12th century, let them. When and if they want to join the modern world that will be their choice and their task. Clear the decks.

Når politikere er for ærekære til at tag den rigtige beslutning og omkostningerne ved at fortsætte er for små. Så har man Afghanistan. Resultatet var tydeligt allerede efter 6 måneder for dem der beskæftigede sig med COIN operationer.
