The mess-up and chaos, but for how long?
Turn around your face, think over what’s happening in this ill-fated land and sink your head into the endless ocean of bloodshed, killing and slaughters, soon you would realize that the war and violence has badly failed in delivering what Afghans are fighting after. It is extreme and bleak futility which cannot be termed fidelity by any definition. Then why are we at it for so long? It is because we have trickster neighbors. And it is because there is a searing blister of revenge and vengeance all around; things have gone that much politicized, murky and dented that even, those, who once were writers of the war and engineers of the destructive bloodshed-stratagem, have lost the threads how to ameliorate the situations on ground. All those who had some hand either overt or covert have been badly hit by their trickeries. Why the 9/11 incidents took place? Because the US had a big role in the destruction of Afghanistan, for it wanted to give its Vietnam War to USSR here in Afghanistan. And they did it. Now its soldiers die on daily basis in this troubled part of the world. See Pakistan, that’s hemorrhaging from cap-a-pie, because it went into the US camp and turned out to be an enormous camping station for the American CIA outside the American territory. Their alliance lasted but strained. However, these days whenever there is any domineering or inconsiderate act from the US against Pakistan, the latter points fingers at Afghanistan, which by no count is fair. And see others who had been covertly supporting militancy in Afghanistan. The Arab states faced the same miseries and bloodshed which this land has become wearied of. The story of the then USSR ended up on breakage. So, those whoever has had played a destructive role, they are struck with miseries and challenges at home. Our neighbors should take lessons, for their reared and thatched Swati thug Fazlullah’s brigands have beheaded three Afghan National Army troops. Since Pakistan has been thoroughly attacking the eastern provinces of Afghanistan; especially, Kunar and Nuristan to bedevil the situation so that their stooge militants can easily infiltrate into these bordering provinces. By now thousands of Afghan villagers have been driven out of their homes because of a barrage of cross-border artillery attacks from Pakistan. But this has always been their habitual canard disseminated in their press, a complicit of the Pakistan’s security establishment, as they every time launch thuggishly their Afghan proxies against Afghanistan they host in their redoubts in Pakistan. And always they easily get away their perfidy as Afghanistan has been that much bleeding that it couldn’t consistently fought them and to expose this vile enterprise of the Pakistan’s security establishment and the Afghan militants. How could Afghanistan respond to them effectively when there is mayhem on unprecedented scale on daily basis while blaming the victim (Kabul) for supporting terrorism in Pakistani territory is no sanity?
For instance, during the past couple of days we have been repeatedly hearing of violent news incidents. The series of Afghan-decimation has not come to an end yet. Here a few headlines have been collected to show that if media reports are any guide about the prevailing situation in the country, it is not troublesome to judge that where are we going anyway and can Afghanistan export terrorism to the soils of its neighbors when it itself is caught in the whirl of challenges. Then why to blame Afghanistan for the mess in the region? Here are a few headlines of Monday which can show the miseries of this nation and the government. 14 killed in clashes, 10 fuel tankers torched—ten armed insurgents were killed during a clash with security forces in the Qaisar district of northern Faryab province, on Monday. Two ISAF soldiers dead in rebel assault—two International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) soldiers were killed in an insurgent attack in southern Afghanistan in Monday. Seven killed in Kunduz, Ghazni blasts—a security guard was killed and eight civilians were left injured when a magnetic bomb place beneath the vehicle of a district chief went off in the northern Kunduz province on Monday. Six civilians among 18 killed in Kandahar—scores of the Taliban insurgents were killed during a fierce firefight with police in southern Kandahar province that left six civilians dead and five others wounded in two separate roadside bomb blasts, official said on Monday. The Taliban governor for Samangan killed—a Taliban-designated governor for northern Samangan province was killed along with four other insurgents during a military search operation, official said on Monday. Six insurgents killed and scores detained—six insurgents were killed and as many others injured during a security operation in Maidan Shahr, the capital city of central Maidan Wardak province, an official said on Monday. However, among all the news headlines, the one that stunned and numbed the brain of the entire nation was the news about the beheading of three Afghan soldiers. And the entire nation asks that for how long this situation will prevail and who is responsible for this mess-up and chaos?
