Pentagon's Frustration And Obama's Expectations During The Night Stopover
21 December 2010
In the Name of Allah, the Most
Beneficent, the Most Merciful.
American president Obama made a
4-hour long stopover at the Bagram air base during a
clandestine trip to Afghanistan and fatuously assured
himself that the American forces would make
advancement in Afghanistan and turn the tide against
the Taliban. He said, the Americans forces would
achieve the objectives for which they have come here.
American President Obama is making these assertions in
a time that the Pentagon in a recent report to the
American Congress has said that their current military
operations against Taliban and the goal of bolstering
the Kabul regime is falling short of its timeframe.
Nor there is any vista of hope in the coming days to
turn the table.
A number of experts, viewing he
recent brief trip of Obama to Afghanistan, have opined
that Obama is facing a poor image dilemma as per the
popular surveys conducted among the American public as
a result of the war in Afghanistan. So he extended the
war by committing a troops surge through sending tens
of thousands of new troops. Rationally, he should have
put an end to the illegitimate Bush's war and ended
the legacy of his stubbornness.
The American are witnessing that
the war in Afghans is nearing its end with the defeat
and historical disgrace of America and that the
Taliban are gaining strength with the passage of time,
so their resentments against Obama are constantly on
The people's disenchantment with
Obama came to the open during the recent Americans
election which culminated into a smashing defeat to
the democrats who belong to Obama's party.
A French political analyst Bruno Bunfa, in an
interview to the media, said that hasty trip of Obama
to Afghanistan reflects the jittery of the American
president because the war in Afghanistan needs more
expenditure while the American people are not ready to
carry out the heavy weight of taxes and other
financial restraints. He says, the former Soviet Union
fought the war in Afghanistan for one decade to
achieve their goals but achieved nothing. Obama and
the Americans should not continue their policy of
repression and coercion and showdown of forces in a
country which is known for not have been ever governed
through force and oppression.
The Americans and the Kabul regime rulers say that
there were technical and security problems that the
American president Obama nether held a press
conference nor met any official of the Kabul regime,
returning home during the stillness of the night.
However, analysts believe that Obama had no guts to
confront the public of the world and the Afghans and
justify the rationale behind the prolongation of the
Afghanistan war or at least, talk about a credible
strategy about continuation of the occupation of
Afghanistan. It is because the surge, the bombardment,
the detainment of the officials of the Islamic Emirate
of Afghanistan and the initiation of spurious efforts
for peace have all went awry. The conspiracies have
failed and the schemes simply boomeranged.
