Lets give the Taliban the south of Afghanistan. This is the suggestion of former US Ambassador to India, Robert Blackwill.
The current counter-insurgency is not working, he says, because the Taliban don’t see why they should negotiate peace when they haven’t been defeated on the ground. The US, he suggests, will have to reconcile to the fact that the Taliban will control southern Afghanistan. They should be allowed to do so.
“After years of faulty US policy toward Afghanistan, there are no quick, easy and cost-free ways to escape the current deadly quagmire. But, with all its problems, de facto partition offers the best available US alternative to strategic defeat,” Blackwill argues in an article in `Politico’.

While the Islamic movement is fighting America and Israel, the US Administration refuses to recognize who the enemy is. When they feel they can hand out billions of US dollar to “Moderat Muslims”, in a bid to make them fight “extremists”, the US only fuel the enemy.
The result is that the US it self increases the powers of the Taliban. It grows stronger by the day, funded with US tax payers money.
Because as soon as the “moderates” has got their promised cash and a proper assault rife, they desert and join their Muslim brethren in their fight against “The great Satan”.
What is the solution?
After 10 years of war failure, there is simply no good solution.
The US has again feed the enemy, that will turn its anger towards the free and democratic West. If the US had not been so bent on revenge in 2001, Afghanistan would have had both schools, infrastructure, water irrigation projects, social justice for women and a functioning democracy today.
The US just had to invested a couple of billions in the right pockets from the start, in stead of bombing Kabul. The Christian West could have displayed to the Afghans, that we cared for them.
An historical chance of taking Afghanistan out of the Middle Ages is lost. Thanks to the Iron Triangle in the US, who former US President Dwight D. Eisenhower warned the World about when he left the oval office.
