An un­wel­come jolt?

Southasia - - Editor's mail -

Un­for­tu­nately Afghanistan has be­come a play­ing field for for­eign pow­ers and its fu­ture lies in their hands. Pres­i­dent Obama’s ner­vous de­ci­sion to with­draw troops can be seen in the con­flict­ing re­marks made by some se­nior level US of­fi­cials. Will US troops aban­don Afghanistan and leave its fate to the un­equipped and un­pre­pared Afghan National Army? If so, then the US should be pre­pared to see a back­lash, an out­come it is al­ready wary of. How­ever, the Afghan govern­ment has also be­come too re­liant on for­eign troops and maybe this will jolt them to take mat­ters in their own hands and chart their des­tiny them­selves.
