A war that cannot be won!
At a time when things are going from bad to worse in Afghanistan, Nato is preparing its exit strategy from there. Only last month, in his recent interview, former Soviet Union President Gorbachev said that victory in Afghanistan is an uphill task. He warned that due to geographical difficulties and very different cultural values, victory is not possible in Afghanistan.
Gorbachev's recent prediction came at a time when the number of casualties of NATO forces has raised to six hundred which has crossed the total number of NATO casualties in 2009. Now, attacks at NATO bases, incidents of road side bombing and suicide bombing have become daily routine in the country. According to NATO high command, after nine years of war Taliban is still controlling seventy two percent area of Afghanistan. Only last month's militant attacks burn down more than 150 NATO supply containers in different parts of Pakistan and Afghanistan. Allies are still paying millions of dollars to secure NATO supply route from possible attacks. After huge military spending and high war casualties, allies are facilitating negotiations between militant groups and US-backed Karzai government. Killing of innocent people by the US force is creating more militants in the region.
