Unbelievable. All those soldiers will have been killed for nothing.
A U.S. military report details that the Taliban, backed by Pakistan, are poised to retake Afghanistan once NATO-led forces leave the country.
Lt Col Jimmie Cummings, a spokesman for the NATO-led International Security Assistance Force (ISAF), confirmed the document’s existence but said it was not a strategic study of operations.
The document cited by Britain’s The Times said that Pakistan’s powerful security agency, the Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI), was assisting the Taliban in directing attacks against foreign forces.
Additionally, the amount of violence in Afghanistan is at its highest since the 2001 invasion.
Despite the presence of about 100,000 foreign troops, violence in Afghanistan is at its worst since the Taliban were ousted by U.S.-backed Afghan forces in 2001, according to the United Nations.
