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.
