NATO lost war to “Taliban”2012-02-02 20:38
NATO's operation in Afghanistan has failed as clearly seen from details of The State of the Taliban secret report that was prepared by NATO special services and was leaked into the press. As the report goes, Talibs act in perfect coordination with special services of Pakistan. Islamabad was quick to refute this information though it is not that important after all. The fatal conclusion of the authors of the report is this: common Afghans are ready to acknowledge the authority of Taliban.
According to BBC and The Times, the report they got hold of was provided by a high-ranking functionary of NATO at Bagram air base near Kabul. The main source of information for its authors were interrogations of four thousand Taliban soldiers captured at the time of the operation as well as al-Qaeda militants and other foreign mercenaries.
Conclusions made on the basis of these interrogations are unambiguous: NATO will never win in Afghanistan. The only way to save face and avoid repetition of the Soviet disgrace is to set up a direct dialogue with Islamists. Up to now, all attempts of US diplomacy to sit at one negotiating table with Taliban faced furious resistance of Afghan president Hamid Karzai who, though completely unsupported at home, keeps insisting that his regime has no alternatives for the West.
The Taliban movement is greatly assisted by Pakistan's ISI (inter-services intelligence) whose officers believe that the sacred war should be continued and foreign invaders should be forced to leave Afghanistan", - authors of the document remark. Naturally, they are perfectly aware where Islamist leaders, hunted by NATO units for over a decade, are hiding. Besides, Pakistan directly controls leaders of the Taliban, NATO document highlights.
The final goal of Islamabad is complete expulsion of foreigners from the neighboring country devastated by endless war in order to restore the Islamist regime. Yet, the government of Pakistan denies that.
"We are committed to non-interference in Afghanistan and expect all other states to strictly adhere to this principle, - Abdul Bassit, a spokesman for Pakistan's foreign ministry said in an interview with BBC. - A stable and peaceful Afghanistan is in our own interests. We cannot indulge in any activity which takes us away from achieving that objective".
