Afghanistan – When Will The Actual Reconstruction Work Begin

September 26th, 2011

Is it possible for a country in the modern world to rely completely on outsiders for its national infrastructure? The Afghanistan army and police force is being set up with the help of other countries? Well, such institutions invariably require a large amount of domestic support and respect. If they are set up with the help of foreign forces, the issue of pride and respect automatically takes a hit and becomes a problem.

Of course, Afghanistan is a special case which was ravished by the Taliban movement. The modern western world is of the opinion that the Taliban movement has been bad for the country. However, there is a lot of popularity for the Taliban movement in the rural parts of the country. In such a scenario, a police force and an army setup with the help of foreign assistance will be treated as an object of ridicule.

This only complicates the already complicated situation in Afghanistan. The economy is in desperate need of new jobs. India, Pakistan and Afghanistan happen to form the golden crescent of drug production. In such a scenario, there must be huge emphasis on establishment of schools and other civilian infrastructure to create jobs and prevent youngsters from becoming addicts.

To ensure that the population reaches modern levels, issues like special needs teaching jobs will also have to be addressed. After all, no society can survive for long effect if it focuses on the majority and ignores the marginalized minority. When all these issues are combined with the sensitivity of political factors involved, there is absolutely no scope for a productive and constructive way forward.

To fight and to continue old enmities can only work for so long. Even the western world is beginning to realize that they may have no option but to get along with the Taliban if they are not in a position to destroy the same.
