Afghanistan

The government is engaged in a bloody conflict with the armed opposition groups especially the Taliban for more than a decade and half just after the group was toppled from power in a US-led international invasion.

 

The massacre of more than 40 innocent women and children which was carried out recently by the Taliban militants in Sar-i-Pul province, has made the Afghan people and government deeply saddened.

 

The question is not here that why President Ashraf Ghani received cool reception during his visit to Iran to take part in the oath-taking ceremony of his Iranian counterpart Hassan Rouhani, rather it’s that why he should not.

 

The US National Security Adviser Gen. H.R McMaster said that President Donald Trump wants Pakistan to change its paradoxical policy of supporting the militants who are causing the country great losses.

 

Islamic State (IS), which is also known as Daesh terrorist have claimed responsibility for the deadly attack on a mosque in western Herat province.

 

Insurgent attacks have been escalated. Casualties among military and civilians are high. Children and women are among killed and wounded.

 

The US administration has to be careful about every single decision regarding America’s longest war, however, with no eye-caching result in Afghanistan.

 

Most of the Afghan masses still do not have access to clean drinking water despite billions of dollars invested to supply the nation with a steady supply.

 

The most dangerous attitude is to remain constant in blunders. Accepting faults can alter the life. Observing faults can change everything as we all know that old ways won’t open new doors. It is time for some bitter truths.

 

Despite the continued uncertainty surrounding the country, the Afghan security forces are fighting all the 20 terrorist outfits with confidence.
