Chasing them beyond frontiers
Although Taliban are termed as Afghans and sons of this soil, but as a matter of fact they do not belong to this land as they do not care about this country and nor they feel any pity over the miserable condition of the war-hit nation when they kill their own innocent people for nothing, but to please their masters, who are training them and providing shelter to these mercenaries outside Afghanistan.
Unfortunately, international community is unwilling to root out terrorism from the region by eliminating training camps of militants in the neighboring countries while Afghanistan is showing patience because it has no capacity to chase them outside its frontiers. And if it does this very bitter act, it will pave way for full scale military intervention from neighbors and the situation will go bedeviled further instead of coming to recuperation. And if this very act is done by the US and NATO, then it is likely that the countries that have been providing safe sanctuaries to Afghan militants on their soil wouldn’t be in the position to retaliate. For instance, Pakistan didn’t retaliate at the OBL incident in Abbotabad and it didn’t responded militarily when its 24 soldiers were killed in Salala, Mohmand Agency. However, the US and the world community wouldn’t do that, because, the world powers supported by multinational corporations (MNCs) do not want to end militancy. If militancy ended then how these MNCs would sell arms and get raw materials at their own defined rates.
In addition to that the world powers got another good reason for invading countries that they intend to make as satellite states, and feed the MNCs with their sought natural and human resources—particularly with the former. When they launch attack on other countries they justify it with “just war theory”, as they did recently when attacked Iraq, Libya and other countries. However, after getting what the world powers (a bunch of developed countries) wanted, left the invaded country in ruins.
MNCs sponsored government works like parasites. They suck natural resources of invaded countries and blood of nation to meet demands at home. Same is the case of Afghanistan. World powers are here for more than a decade but failed to destroy the safe havens of militants and demolish their training centers. It is not a failure but a bleak failure.
Wednesday’ incidents in Logar province, southeastern Khost province are just a single example to support the argument that world powers are not taking terrorism serious. Although, seven civilians have been killed by a roadside bomb in Logar alone when a tractor pulling a wagon crammed with people struck the explosive on a road outside while in another incident 18 person were killed and 30 others sustained severe injuries when a suicide bomber (bad egg) blew himself up in Khost.
If the United States and its allies are taking terrorism a serious threat, then they have to go and hunt down them beyond Afghan frontiers. When Washington DC deemed necessary the killing of OBL then it killed him without caring for consequences of challenging sovereignty of a state. Osama was a single person while there are hundreds of terrorists in the neighboring country but US is silent while world powers despite the fact are selling weapons to Islamabad. And it is despite the fact that they know the weapons are later proliferated among militants.
Now it is up to the Afghan government to take the issue seriously with Islamabad and other countries and to ask them that demolish the sanctuaries of these predators (Taliban and al-Qaeda elements). It seems that rebels would not come to table and join peace process as they are lured by their foreign bosses and never felt the pain of this land as well as of innocent civilians who receive damages from both sides—militants and troops. They have lost their sole bread earners and beloved ones, so feel pity over their miserable life, and end the deadliest violence of this century.
