NATO withdrawal from Afghanistan

NATO withdrawal from Afghanistan
The NATO troop withdrawal from Afghanistan has been much debated in the world of politics and military stratagems. NATO forces have been stationed in Afghanistan since the American war on terror in the aftermath of 9/11. The war has seen many civilian and soldier causalities and has also rendered the former President of United States George W. Bush highly unpopular.

Reasons for NATO to leave Afghanistan
  • Help calm down Islamic extremism – The war on terror isolated and angered Muslim world and the continued presence of NATO threatened their religious beliefs. The troop withdrawal would help soothe their tempers.
  • Casualties – One of the most debated parts of this occupation has been the military casualties that have been suffered by the forces. Withdrawal would completely eliminate these
  • Financial turmoil – The war has wreaked havoc on USA and allied countries’ economy. The discontinuation of the occupation would help them put their money and energies in reviving the economies.
  • Al Qaeda threat to be minimized – The threat of militant Muslim organizations launching attacks could be curtailed to a lot of extent if the troop withdrawal happens. It would give the force a break and help it strengthen its weak points. The threat of Al-Qaeda could also be subsided as the sole reason for its continuing popularity in Islamic world is its counter operations against the forces. When the cause is gone, Al-Qaeda would cease to exist!
Reasons for NATO to not leave Afghanistan
  • Instability in the region - Troop withdrawal could make the South-Asia completely unstable, what with Pakistan going back to its old ways of subjugating Afghanistan through terrorism and making it its own vested puppet. It is to be noted that it was Pakistan that helped Mullah Omar and Taliban to take over Afghanistan.
  • Break down of peace in the country - Factional wars can break out in this insurgency hit country as the country in virtually divided in different clans and tribes, with none recognizing the other. The bloodshed would be imminent.
  • More challenges to Human Rights - The country is plagued with human rights violations and is one of the worst for women and children in the world. The Taliban has in the past used children foot soldiers, there is little doubt that this country could sink back in the turmoil.
  • Growth of extremism - Extremism would again gain strength and no one would be able to check it. The Ahmed Karzai led government operates only in Kabul. The Afghanistan is out of its reach. Taliban can easily overthrow this government with little Pakistani backing.
  • General population to suffer - Civilian casualties may mount. The drones and NATO may be gone, but Taliban would be back. That is enough to suspect continuation of mayhem and anarchy.
