Sometimes I really do not understand the "Pretend" games of the Europeans! If you are doing something… why not say as it is? This is exactly what this author points out! The verdict is clear – Germany is At War! IN fact it has been for the last five years!
And btw, just as I have always predicted, the Taliban are staging a comeback.. the situation is getting to Taliban supremacy days … at least in terms of ground reality if not completely!
German government approved the deployment of Tornado jets to Afghanistan on Wednesday. "Are we now at war?" the tabloid Bild wrote, clearly hedging its bets. German Chancellor Angela Merkel should be honest enough to answer this question with a clear "Yes." While she’s at it, she should add that this has been the case for the last five years.
German troops have been stationed in Afghanistan for the past five years to lend support to the government in Kabul. In the first few years following the fall of the brutal Taliban regime, Afghanistan experienced advances in democratization and the development of a civil society, but now those developments have stagnated. In fact, some of the territory captured by the government has been lost once again. The Taliban is advancing toward Kabul and is once again imposing its reign of terror on entire provinces. Opium production is rampant, and the warlords have regained some of their influence. It’s been five years since the Petersberg Conference in Bonn, where an international reconstruction plan was approved for Afghanistan, and yet the country remains neither pacified nor democratized, nor has the Taliban been defeated.
