Time to Go

Southasia - - ON RECORD -

I’m sur­prised the with­drawal of troops from Afghanistan has taken this long con­sid­er­ing the U.S gov­ern­ment first made its an­nounce­ment back in Novem­ber 2013. Amidst in­creased loss of life and bil­lions in taxpayers’ money used for the sup­posed ‘cause’, the war on terror in Afghanistan is rapidly los­ing sup­port amongst the Amer­i­can public and the Afghani peo­ple alike. How­ever good the in­ten­tions of the Amer­i­can gov­ern­ment may be, it’s about time they handed over the charge of the safety and se­cu­rity of the coun­try to its own peo­ple.

The Afghani peo­ple have found an able leader in the form of Ashraf Ghani, who has plans to make the coun­try com­pletely in­de­pen­dent of Amer­i­can in­ter­fer­ence. With a strong grasp on for­eign pol­icy and eco­nomic man­age­ment, Ghani will be able to bring the coun­try on to the right track.
