Afghanistan

It is very fact that there is no way to park the recent crossing firings of Pakistani forces into Afghanistan, rather to give it tight response aimed at showing we are ready to kill and die for defending our country.

 

Afghanistan is universally famous for its own traditions that are not or at least less popular in other countries. The historical Buddha statues in Bamyan, Buzkashi sport and hospitality are the elements that have made the people of Afghanistan famous in the world.

 

 

War must end. The Afghans have been rendering huge sacrifices during past 16 years in the global war on terror which no end sees in sight.

 

There is just a need to see Afghanistan from another picture that could be through lens of sports, education, social development, and so many other improvements that has been made in the past years.

 

After 2001, land value has been increased in Afghanistan in which has turned to some primary driver of conflict in the country. Must say that lad grabbing has reached the boiling point in the last 16 years, especially after the collapse of the Taliban regime.

 

With lament, the number of displaced people due to violence has dramatically doubled considering past years. According to Amnesty International’s last year’s report, a staggering 1.2 million people were internally displaced in Afghanistan, a dramatic increase from some 500,000 in 2013.

 

It is very much clear that the Afghan government has been making efforts to sort out issues and move the country toward peace and prosperity.

 

There is no denial that US longest war continues to trudge on and the bodies continue to pile up in which Afghan civilians are the worst victims at first place beside, the Afghan security forces.

 

During his election campaign, US president Donald Trumphad called the American war in Afghanistan a waste of American money, effort and lives. However, once elected, Trump changed his mind on the war in Afghanistan.

 

Being a war-hit country, Afghanistan and its people always had great potentials and geostrategic importance in the region and in global politics.
