With U.S. Aid, Warlord Builds Afghan Empire

By DEXTER FILKINS

The most powerful man in this arid stretch of southern Afghanistan is not the provincial governor - It is Matiullah Khan, the head of a private army that earns millions of dollars guarding NATO supply convoys and fights Taliban insurgents alongside American Special Forces.

Doubling Down in Afghanistan: Why We Refuse to Fold a Losing Hand

William J. Astore, TomDispatch: "As Congress moves toward rubber-stamping yet another 'emergency' supplemental bill that includes more than $33 billion for military operations, mainly to fund the latest surge in Afghanistan, maybe we should take a page from the new British government. Facing debilitating deficits, the conservative Tories and their Liberal Democrat partners are proposing painful cuts to governmental budgets, including military operations in Afghanistan."

Interpreting Afghanistan

Boston Globe
by H.D.S. Greenway

06/01/10

Reading carefully between the lines of President Obama’s speech at West Point last year, in which he laid out his war plans, I thought I heard an echo of Mikhail Gorbachev when he told his generals that they had a couple of years to turn things around in Afghanistan. If they couldn’t, Russia’s army would come home. One saw ambiguity in Obama’s thoughts when he ordered a troop surge, only to say he would begin withdrawing in the summer of 2011. Oh, the caveats were quickly made that he had meant only the beginning of a withdrawal, and that circumstances would dictate its pace. But the damage was done for those careful listeners in Kabul, Islamabad, New Delhi, and the countries in the region. The United States might be surging, but the country wasn’t in for a hundred-year effort to establish a protectorate as the British had done more than a century before...

Terror link alleged as Saudi millions flow into Afghanistan war zone:

Millions of dollars of Saudi Arabian money have flowed into Afghanistan over the past four years, the country's intelligence officials say, with the sponsorship of terrorism its most likely use.

Afghanistan: The case for negotiations

In These Times
by Gilles Dorronsoro

05/24/10

The coalition’s strategy in Afghanistan is at an impasse. The renewed efforts undertaken since the summer of 2009 have failed to temper the guerrilla war. A few tactical successes are possible, but this war cannot be won. The coalition cannot defeat the Taliban as long as Pakistan continues to offer them sanctuary. And increasing resources to wage the war is not an option. The costs of continuing the war — to use Ambassador Karl Eikenberry’s expression in the leaked telegram to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton — are ‘astronomical’...

War in Afghanistan set to outlast Vietnam

USA Today

05/31/10

Three months after 9/11, every major Taliban city in Afghanistan had fallen — first Mazar-i-Sharif, then Kabul, finally Kandahar. Osama bin Laden and Mullah Omar were on the run. It looked as if the war was over, and the Americans and their Afghan allies had won. Butch Ivie, then a school administrator in Winfield, Ala., remembers: ‘We thought we’d soon have it tied up in a neat little bag.’ But bin Laden and Omar eluded capture. The Taliban regrouped. Today, Kandahar again is up for grabs. And Afghanistan soon will pass Vietnam as America’s longest war...
