The Unity Regime of Kabul has stumbled so often in the past year and a half that even many failed states will be startled by such a feat. The diplomacy of the regime shuns ground realities and national interests for policies driven by propaganda, emotions and hyper-optimism. If the regime doesn’t change its approach, it will soon crumble on its own rotten self.
On the second day of the Unity regime’s inauguration, it signed a Security Pact with the foreign forces which many have classified as the ‘sell out protocol’ of Afghanistan. All the while the regime leaders flaunted their independence publicly. They placed tremendous faith in the Security Agreement and failed to foresee the dismal failures of this Agreement.
They shamelessly and vigorously campaigned for the Security Agreement and coupled its signing with the existence of Afghanistan as a successful state. They asserted that this Agreement would transform Afghanistan into a regional trade hub akin to Dubai and Singapore. They argued that Afghanistan (secured by the Agreement) would revive the old Silk Road and thrive from it becoming a pivot between Central and South Asia.
They went so far as to attribute the natural resources of Afghanistan and its successful extraction to the signing of this Agreement. Without a doubt Afghanistan enjoys an enviable strategic location and potentially can link the markets of Central and South Asia. But our national interests demand that we adopt a policy that avoids compromising our sovereignty while exploiting the geopolitics of Asia.
The Unity regime fails to admit that the presence of foreign troops represents a grave threat to the territorial integrity of our nation. That this presence compromises our national sovereignty. The longer foreign forces stay in our land the weaker and more colonized we become.
America’s ultimate objective is to use Afghanistan as a base to control and subdue the region, encircle and isolate their rivals and threaten ‘rogue’ or non-compliant states. Under such circumstances Afghanistan will become the Germany of Cold War – a land where regional and world adversaries play out their rivalries. The ultimate victims of their proxy wars will inevitably be the Afghan nation.
The Unity government has taken a dangerously partisan stance in the delicate balance of power and their intransigence endangers the entire nation. Their relations with regional and world powers such as China, India, Pakistan, Iran, Saudi Arabia and Russia are not based on rational calculations but rather on emotional and eccentric policies.
The regime’s Security Agreements with America and NATO are foreign imposed and opposed by the large majority of Afghans. The regime’s eccentric and irrational behavior is akin to that of a disabled adolescent whose legal agreements have no force of law and are thus null and void.
