Restoring the Tribal Balance: The only path to Peace!

By Khalil Nouri and Michael Hughes

President Barack Obama doesn’t have a viable Afghanistan exit strategy due to a fatal flaw in America’s policy development process: a complete lack of input from native Afghans. It is time for the U.S.-led coalition to realize there is only one solution for peace in Afghanistan – and that is an Afghan solution.

The alternatives bandied about to date are formulas for state collapse – a nearly 10-year-old failed counterinsurgency effort; a power-sharing arrangement that would divvy up Afghanistan between corrupt government officials, Islamic fundamentalists and mujahideen warlords; and a partition strategy guaranteed to yield perpetual civil war.

However, as paradoxical as this might seem, the U.S. cannot withdraw until an indigenous political solution is in place, because abandoning the field to the Taliban would create dire consequences that make the present military occupation look good by comparison.

First, Westerners must grasp that Afghanistan’s future lies within its past. Afghanistan experienced forty years of peace, prosperity and stability during the reign of King Zahir Shah. Since then, after 30 years of incessant war, Afghanistan is now one of the most violent, corrupt and poverty-stricken places on earth.

Afghanistan saw stability when its indigenous tribal structure was intact and a national unifying monarch sat on the throne – two essential factors that helped maintain the “tribal balance”. Tribalism and dynastic loyalty cemented the shards of clans and ethnicities together, which enabled intra-tribal and inter-tribal cohesion. When these bonding agents were destroyed, Afghan society spiraled into an ever-darkening chaotic abyss.

The decimation of the tribal structure tilted the center of gravity towards “strongmen” and away from respected tribal elders, because, in a Hobbesian world of “kill or be killed”, might trumps tribal values. Brute force, guns and money replaced tribal moral authority as the source of power, thus marginalizing the voice of the majority of good, moderate Afghans.

The logical solution to this dilemma is to reinstate the tribal equilibrium. This can be accomplished through a series of “All-Afghan Jirgas.” The jirga is a 300-year old mechanism designed to resolve major political issues by assembling Afghan tribal leaders, especially in times of crisis.

A total of three rounds of jirgas would be held, the first two in neutral countries, for security purposes, to design the solution. The finale will be held in Kandahar, the heart of Afghan politics, where a new head of state and form of government will be announced.

This plan might sound similar to the Bonn Process that established Afghanistan’s current system of government, yet no foreign influence will be allowed. The Bonn Accord, in contrast, was crafted under UN auspices with heavy involvement from Westerners and other regional actors.

Unlike Bonn, the opposition will be encouraged to attend; however, groups will not be allowed representation. The likes of President Karzai, Mullah Omar and Gulbuddin Hekmatyar may participate as individual citizens only.

This idea has been discussed directly with contacts in Afghanistan along with members of the Afghan diaspora, located in America, Canada and Europe – who all roundly support the concept. This includes influential tribal leaders from the most popular tribes in the South such as the Alokozai and Achakazi; some Ghelzai Pashtuns in the East; and non-Pashtun tribes across the country – including the Hazara, Uzbek, Tajik and Panjshirees in the North. It has even been approved by former Taliban commanders, former members of Hezbi-Islami and retired Pakistani military and intelligence officials.

The U.S. will need to continue to provide security to “level the playing field” and can then begin employing a “reverse mujahideen” strategy by supporting moderate Afghans to fight an insurgency that will surely continue at some level, as irreconcilable remnants of the Taliban conduct jihad to fulfill dreams of establishing a caliphate.

Additionally, it will be critical to prevent Pakistan from interfering in Afghan affairs. Long-term the U.S. must help Pakistan rebuild its country and economy because America, Afghanistan and other neighboring countries will never be secure if Pakistan is unstable.

It is time to re-empower Afghanistan’s “Silent Majority,” but an Afghan solution is not possible until the Obama administration is willing to listen to natives so that Afghans can, finally, choose their own destiny.

    Excellent proposal. One or two more additions would make the proposal even more attractive. I request direct contact by Mr Nouri.

  • Z T  On October 20, 2010 at 4:29 am

    Non-sense. The only way to restore peace is to get rid of the tribalism altogether…

    • Laila  On October 20, 2010 at 4:53 am

      If you look to history of Afghanistan, you will find no ALIEN has been able to conquer this proud nation. May it be touts like Karzai or attackers like USA. The tribal code is a respected code of Afghanistan.An Afghan & a Pakhtun will live & die by that code.
      Yes, it’s a brilliant idea bought forth by both writers.
      IF only powers to the day have the SENSE.

    IT IS HIGH TIME TO REFORM AND COME TO TERMS WITH THE WORLD’S HUMANITY.
    THIS IS MY ADVICE TO G – 8……………….THE BIG IN NAMES BUT SMALL IN DEEDS.
    THE SAVAGE SOCIAL ANIMALS AS DESCRIBED BY DARWIN.

    WHILE IT IS A GREAT PRIVILEGE TO BE RICH AND POWERFUL, IT IS ALSO A GREAT RESPONSIBILITY.

    THEY NEED TO GET SERIOUS.
    OBJECTIVE ORIENTED.
    SO AS TO BE ABLE TO GIVE THE GIFT OF REAL LIFE TO THE WORLD’S OPPRESSED .
    LEST THE MASSES STAND-UP AND TAKE IT BY FORCE.

    WHAT WE DO NOT HAVE IN TODAY’S WORLD TO MAKE OUR LIVES HEAVENLY WITH SO MUCH SURPLUS IN RESOURCES, PRODUCTION CAPACITY,TECHNICAL ADVANCEMENT, INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY ,A LOT MORE CONVENIENCES FOR DEVELOPMENT AND ADVANCEMENT AND YET UN-TAPPED NATURAL RESOURCES.

    BUT THE WORLD HAS BECOME HOSTAGE IN THE HANDS OF THE FEW UNSCRUPULOUS AND THEIR COLLABORATORS IN VESTED INTERESTS,THE VESTED INTERESTS IN ARMS,ENERGY,OIL,TOBACCO AND THE REST.

    WARS MUST BE FOUGHT TO KEEP THE WHEELS OF ARMS INDUSTRY RUNNING AND NO MATTER IF TOBACCO CONTINUES TO KILL OVER SIX MILLIONS EVERY YEAR, ALL UNDER THE PATRONAGE OF WORLD’S EXECUTIVES / JUDICIARY.

    WHAT GOOD ARE THESE LEADERS AND INSTITUTIONS FOR ?

    IT IS THEREFORE INCUMBENT ON EVERY PEACE LOVING CITIZEN OF THE WORLD TO CHECK ALL WRONG DOINGS AND TO LEAVE NO STONE UNTURNED IN ERADICATING THE ROOT CAUSE OF INJUSTICE AND OPPRESSION IN WHATEVER FORM IT IS FOUND SO THAT THIS WORLD COULD BE PURGED OF OPPRESSION AND THE HUMANITY MAY ENJOY THE FRUITS OF JUSTICE IRRESPECTIVE OF RACIAL DISCRIMINATION, REGIONAL DIFFERENCE AND DISTINCTION OF COLOUR.

    WE MUST VEHEMENTLY WORK THRU UNO TO ACCOMPLISH SOCIAL JUSTICE THE WORLD OVER.

    FASCIST REGIMES MUST BE CORNERED TO GIVE THE DUE TO THE REST OF THE WORLD , MOSTLY THE DEPRIVED AND THE UNDERPRIVILEGED A SHARE IN WORLD’S RESOURCES AND A SIGH OF PEACE.

    WE MUST WORK , WITH DUE URGENCY , TO PUT AN END TO ALL SORTS OF MONOPOLY ON KNOWLEDGE AND TECHNOLOGY AND HEGEMONY IN WORLDS FINANCIAL INSTITUTIONS WHEREBY RICH ARE GETTING RICHER AND POOR ARE GETTING POORER.CHILDREN ARE DYING OF MALNUTRITION AND LACK OF MEDICAL CARE,THE SIX OUT OF SEVEN BILLION WORLD’S POPULATION IS SUFFERING ALL SORTS OF INJUSTICES IN THEIR SOCIAL AS WELL AS ECONOMIC LIFE AT THE HANDS OF THE FEW UNSCRUPULOUS.

    DEATHS IN SOMALIA,PALESTINE,KASHMIR,AFGHANISTAN,IRAQ AND ELSE WHERE MUST BE TRIED AS WE DID TRY NAZIS FOR WORLD WAR TWO ATROCITIES.SO THAT IDEOLOGICALLY IN-SANE, ETHICALLY BANKRUPT , BLANK IN DIPLOMACY,VOID OF ANY RESPECT FOR HUMAN LIFE AND PSYCHOLOGICALLY IRRATIONAL WAR CRIMINALS ARE PUNISHED FOR MILLIONS OF DEATHS OF NON-COMBATANT , INNOCENT MEN,WOMEN AND CHILDREN WITH ENORMOUS WASTAGE OF HUMAN AND FINANCIAL RESOURCES ON FRIVOLOUS GROUNDS,WITH THEIR LIES AND ABUSE OF INFORMATION PROVED BEYOND ANY DOUBTS.

    WHEN GOD THE ALMIGHTY, ALL WISE , CATEGORICALLY DECLARED IN ALL THE REVEALED BOOKS:

    “THE ONE WHO HAPPENS TO HAVE SAVED ONE LIFE HAS SAVED THE ENTIRE HUMANITY AND THE ONE WHO HAS CAUSED ONLY ONE TO HAVE LOST A LIFE HAS AS SUCH KILLED ALL THE HUMANITY ” ( ALQURAN 6-32 )

    ” I believe that life is precious and must be protected and respected and that all human beings have the right to live in dignity.”
    SEC. GEN.Ban Ki- moon at press conference at NY,11 JAN.2007.

    BUT EVERY MINUTE SOME ONE IS PICKED UP FROM SOME WHERE AND SOME ONE ELSE IS EXTRA JUDICIALLY SHOT DEAD ON THE CONCOCTED PRETEXTS DEVISED BY THE KILLER REGIMES WITH NO COURT CASE ACCEPTED AND REGISTERED AGAINST IT.

    FOR ANY AND EVERY UN-NATURAL DEATH,EVERY INJURY,EVERY LOSS OF BODY PARTS,EVERY PHYSICAL OR MENTAL TRAUMA,EVERY DISPLACEMENT AND LOSS OF LIVELIHOOD OR PROPERTY , EVERY IMPACT ON SOCIAL LIFE AND AT EVERY LOSS OF PEACE AND TRANQUILITY, IN ANY PART OF THE WORLD , WE MUST SEEK TO APPREHEND THE CULPRITS AND THEIR ACCOMPLICES. LEADERS WHO DO NOT UNDERSTAND TOLERANCE AND DIPLOMATIC HANDLING , MUST BE PICKED UP FROM THEIR NECKS AND SHOWN THE EXIT DOOR.

    MILLIONS OF HELPLESS INFANTS,YOUNG AND ADULT AND THE ELDERLY DIE EVERY YEAR FROM DISEASES SUCH AS MALARIA,TB , ETC., THE LIST IS LONG. WHICH CAN BE MINIMIZED BUT WHO SHOULD DO THAT ??????

    OVER BILLION MEN, WOMEN AND CHILDREN DO NOT HAVE SAFE WATER TO DRINK AND THEREFORE CANNOT LIVE IN A HEALTHY LIFE. DAILY ALMOST 50,000 MEN, WOMEN AND CHILDREN DIE FROM DISEASES DIRECTLY RELATED TO DRINKING POLLUTED WATER EVEN IF THERE IS ENOUGH FOOD TO EAT, FAMILIES MAY STILL BE SLOWLY DYING FROM AN OTHER FORM OF HUNGER CALLED “INVISIBLE HUNGER” AND IT COMES FROM DRINKING UNSAFE WATER.

    WATER-BORNE PARASITES, RECEIVED FROM DRINKING CONTAMINATED WATER, MULTIPLY CONTINUOUSLY IN WEAKENED BODIES,ROBBING THEIR HOSTS OF THE NOURISHMENT AND ENERGY THEY NEED TO GROW AND DEVELOP NORMALLY. 80% OF FATAL CHILDHOOD DISEASES THAT KILL CHILDREN AND DESTROY FAMILIES WORLDWIDE ARE CAUSED BY DRINKING CONTAMINATED WATER. BUT YOU CAN ACTUALLY STOP HUNGER, HEAL DISEASES AND SAVE MANY THOUSANDS OF PRECIOUS LIVES WITH A SIMPLE GIFT OF WATER.

    HELL WITH UNO AND WHO.

    FOR THAT MATTER DISEASE PREVENTION FUNCTION SHOULD BE TAKEN AWAY FROM MEDICAL PROFESSION AND THE HEALTH INDUSTRY AS THEY HAVE VESTED INTERESTS IN DISEASE SPREAD AND IT’S SUBSEQUENT MANAGEMENT. MORE SICKNESSES BRING THEM MORE FINANCIAL PROSPECTS WITH INDUSTRY FLOURISHING AND HOSPITAL BEDS OCCUPIED, CLINICS OVER FLOWING WITH PATIENTS..

    HOW CAN WE EXPECT DISEASE PREVENTION AND PROMOTION OF HEALTHY LIVING FROM THEM ?

    SUCH IS THE CASE WITH LEGAL PROFESSION.THE LAWYERS HAVE A VESTED INTEREST IN LITIGATION. HOW CAN WE EXPECT TIMELY,EXPEDITIOUS JUSTICE IN THESE CIRCUMSTANCES WHEN THE CRIMINALS AND DEFAULTERS ARE PROTECTED BY THEIR LEARNED COUNCILS ON FRIVOLOUS GROUNDS USING THE SHIELD OF SILLY LEGAL PROCEDURES IN RETURN FOR THE PROFESSIONAL FEES.LET ME SIGHT HERE A GLARING EXAMPLE OF WORLD’S WORST SCENARIO…..IT IS ABOUT THE TOBACCO INDUSTRY.WHAT MORE EVIDENCE IS NEEDED TO CONFIRM OVER FIVE MILLIONS DEATHS ANNUALLY ( REF.W.H.O. BULLETIN ) AND THE RELATED COLLATERAL DAMAGE TO HEALTH,ENVIRONMENT AND WASTE OF MONEY.

    THIS WORLD OF OUR’S IS IN THE HANDS OF USURPERS , STUPID VESTED INTERESTS AND SILLY,FILTHY RICH.

    THEY DO NOT KNOW THEIR REAL NEEDS ..

    ALAS ALL WHAT THESE RICH AND HEADS OF GOVERNMENTS AND THEIR PATRONS IN JUDICIARY AND PUBLIC SERVICES ARE AMASSING WILL NOT FOLLOW THEM IN THEIR GRAVES. AS THE ULTIMATE EQUALITY IN CONSUMPTION IS ORDAINED BY ALLAH HIMSELF.WE CAN EAT AND DIGEST ONLY AS MUCH AS OUR BODY NEEDS, WEAR ONLY ONE DRESS, A PAIR OF SHOES,RIDE ONE VEHICLE AT A TIME AND OUR SLEEPING SPACE IS 6 BY 2 FT NO MATTER HOW MUCH WEALTH AND CONTROL WE ARE ABLE TO POSSESS.

    NOTHING FOLLOWS US IN THE NEXT WORLD EXCEPT OUR WELL INTENTIONED DEEDS.WE LOOSE OUR CONTROL ON OUR POSSESSIONS AND YET WE WILL HAVE TO ACCOUNT FOR EVERY PENNY AS TO HOW WE ACQUIRED IT AND HOW WE SPENT IT TO THE CORE OF OUR INTENTIONS.

    THAT IS THE LIFE TO COME TO STAY FOR TRILLIONS OF YEARS AND OUR TIME OF DEPARTURE FROM THIS WORLD IS ALSO NOT IN OUR HAND, CONSIDERING OUR CURRENT AGES,OUR ONE FOOT IS ALREADY IN OUR GRAVES.

    YES IT IS RIGHT BEYOND ANY DOUBTS THAT THIS WORLD OF OUR’S OUGHT TO BE DISCIPLINED. HOW WOULD YOU DO IT ! SO THAT THE GOAL IS ACCOMPLISHED OF CONTEMPLATING A LASTING PEACE.

    A PESSIMIST SEES THE DIFFICULTY IN EVERY OPPORTUNITY AND

    AN OPTIMIST SEES THE OPPORTUNITY IN EVERY DIFFICULTY.

    LET US FIRST NOT TALK OF WAR ON TERROR.

    WAR IS A COWARDICE ESCAPE FROM PROBLEMS OF PEACE.

    LET US LEARN THE TIME AND CRISIS MANAGEMENT.

    WE KNOW IT WELL THAT A HORSE CAN BE TAKEN TO THE WATER BUT HE CAN NOT BE FORCED TO DRINK.

    LET US THUS NOT TRY SELLING ICE TO THE SKIMOS.

    LET US THUS GET TO BE MARKET ORIENTED,CUSTOMER FRIENDLY AND VERY MUCH JUDICIOUS.

    DO WE NOT KNOW HOW TO TAME THE ANIMALS ! DO NOT WE SEE A DOLPHIN PERFORM TO OUR TUNES IN RETURN FOR THE NEEDED FOOD ? DO WE NOT KNOW A CALM , SLEEPING LION WHEN STOMUCHFUL

    WHY FIGHT WITH LOSS OF ENORMOUS RESOURCES, LIVES, CREDIBILITY,PEACE AND TRUST WHEN ONE CAN BUY THE PROBLEMS OF DIFFICULT ELEMENTS DIRT CHEAP IN COMPARISON TO COSTS OF WARS.

    LET US NOT GET VIOLENT AGAINST PEOPLE OF OUR OWN PLANET, CHILDREN OF ONE PARENT, ADAM AND EVE.

    THE VIOLENCE IS THE LAST REFUGE OF THE INCOMPETENT.

    LET US WIN-OVER THE HEARTS.THE REST WILL FALL IN CONSEQUENCE.

    LET US GIVE THEM JOBS WHERE THEY ARE RESIDING TO MAKE THEM FIND ALTERNATIVE AND PRODUCTIVE AS WELL AS DEARLY NEEDED BREAD EARNING ENGAGEMENTS,GIVE THEM RECOGNITION , TO VERY THOSE WHO PUT THEIR LIVES SECONDARY TO THEIR CAUSE,CHALLENGE THEM TO EXPLORE NATURAL RESOURCES,FIND NEW FRONTIERS IN ECONOMIC ENDEAVOURS, RECLAIM LANDS,FIND AND MINE RICH DEPOSITS,LEAD THEM TO FIND A GOOD PURPOSE TO PURSUE,LET THEM FIND A NEW LEASE OF A HAPPY LIFE WITH GOOD WAGES AND DO NOT LEAVE THEM ALONE TO BE FOUND BY OTHERS WHO ARE DETERMINED TO CAUSE MISCHIEF AND SAVE THEM FROM GIVING UP LIVES IN SUICIDE BOMBINGS WITH NO FRUITFUL ENDS FOR THEM OR FOR THEIR LOVED ONES.

    LET ME COME TO MY REAL POINT.

    THE REAL ISSUE IS THE ECONOMIC INEQUALITY,DENIAL OF BASIC RIGHTS AND LACK OF EASILY ACCESSIBLE OPPORTUNITIES TO A GOOD COMFORTABLE LIFE.

    IT IS NOT ONLY THE RELIGIOUS EXTREMISM.IT IS THIS ECONOMIC DISPARITY WHICH DRIVES PEOPLE MAD.

    REASONS OF VIOLENCE IN BELIEFS IS A LAME EXCUSE FOR GOING OUTRAGEOUS IN CONDUCT OF THEIR FIGHT AGAINST SUCH DEPRIVATION AND UNJUST ECONOMIC ORDER.

    WE CAN NOT LEAVE OUR BROTHERS AND SISTERS , ELDERLY AND YOUNGSTERS,HUNGRY WITHOUT FOOD OR HOMELESS ON THE STREETS AND THE SICK UNATTENDED OR THE WOMEN AS DESTITUTE. WE JUST CAN NOT.

    WHAT GOOD ALL THis economic PROGRESS is FOR,
    THAT COULD BE THE READING ON THE MINDS OF THE DEPRIVED !

    YES IT IS FIRST THEIR RESPONSIBILITY TO EARN FOR THEMSELVES BUT IT WILL TURN INTO OUR LIABILITY IF NOT TAKEN CARE PROMPTLY AND EXPEDITIOUSLY.

    LOVE AND RESPECT IS COMMANDED AND NOT DEMANDED, AUTHORITY AND STRENGTH IS DERIVED AND NOT TAKEN, PRIVILEGES ARE EARNED AND NOT TAKEN FOR GRANTED,GOOD RELATIONS ARE CULTIVATED AND NOURISHED AND NOT DICTATED.

    THE BEST GUARANTEES FOR YOU TO RETAIN THE POSITIONS YOU ARE OCCUPYING , ARE IN THE DELIVERANCE OF THE OPTIMUM OF WHAT YOU COULD AND OUGHT TO PROVIDE AND THAT IS SATISFACTORY TO THE POPULATION.

    HOW CAN WE REAP PEACE WHEN WE ARE SOWING SEEDS OF HATRED AND DISCONTENT.AN STITCH IN TIME SAVES NINE AND WE SHALL REAP WHAT SHALL WE SOW.

    KINDLY DO THE NEEDFUL WHEN YOU STILL HAVE THE TIME.
    (to lead the people, we need to walk behind them)

    THUS THE BASIC NEEDS,
    WHAT MAY COME
    MUST BE TAKEN CARE NAMELY
    FOOD, HOUSING ,CLOTHING,HEALTH SERVICES ,EDUCATION
    MINUS ALL SORTS OF
    MONOPOLY,HIGHHANDED-NESS,DEPRIVATION OR OPPRESSION.

    GREAT WORKS ARE PERFORMED NOT BY STRENGTH BUT BY PERSEVERANCE.
    THUS A NEW DIMENSION HAS TO BE ADDED TO WORLD’S PROBLEMS SOLVING.

    THOSE WHO ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR ALL THE LAWLESSNESS,TERRORISM,POVERTY,CHAOS ARE THE ONE WHO TRY TO APPEAR TO BE TAKING CARE OF IT.THEY NEED TO BE SIDELINED.

    THE MINIMUM WHICH THE POPULATION MAY EXPECT FROM YOU IS AN ENABLING ENVIRONMENT SO THAT THEY ARE ABLE TO PURSUE FOR THEMSELVES MEANS OF SUSTENANCE WITH EQUAL OPPORTUNITIES AND JUSTICE.

    LET EVERY GOVERNment IN EACH LOCALITY EXTEND FULL AND GENUINELY HONEST SUPPORT to the noble cause of common welfare.

    LET US NOT EXPECT MUCH FROM THE FILTHY GROUP OF EIGHT,THE SAVAGES WHO INVENTED AND USED NUCLEAR AND CHEMICAL WEAPONS,THE KILLERS OF NATIVE AMERICANS,THE ENSLAVERS OF THE WORLD’S BLACK POPULATIONS AND WEAK REGIMES,THE STARTERS OF TWO WORLD WARS,THE VILLAIN OF HIROSHIMA AND NAGASAKI ,THE TOBACCO AND WINE PRODUCERS,THE PROMOTERS OF FREE SEX AND VULGARITIES,THE ABUSERS OF WOMEN AND CHILDREN , THE NATIONS OF GROWING BASTARDS AS EVERY THIRD CHILD IS BORNE OUTSIDE THE MARRIAGE BOND AN D 70% RAPES REPORTED HAPPEN TO BE INCEST.

    THE CULPRITS WHO EXPLOIT THE WEAKER SEX OF THEIR WOMEN FOLK IN THE NAME OF FREE SEX TO USE THEM OUTSIDE THE SACRED MARRIAGE BOND SO AS TO DENY THEM THEIR DUE RIGHTS AND PRIVILEGES AS LIFE PARTNERS. THE EXPLOITERS OF WORLD RESOURCES,THE HEARTLESS WHO DESERT THEIR OWN YOUNG OFFSPRING AND THE ELDERLY PARENTS IN TIMES OF THEIR NEED TO BE CARED FOR.

    MAY I TAKE THE OPPORTUNITY TO GIVE A WAKE-UP CALL TO THE YOUNG BILLIONS TO TAKE THE INITIATIVE OF TAKING OVER THE CHARGE OF THEIR DESTINY IN THEIR OWN HANDS , STOP PLAYING BABIES WHEN YOU HAPPEN TO BE MATURED ENOUGH TO PRODUCE YOUR OWN BABIES, WHEN YOU ARE BETTER EDUCATED, ENERGETIC,FUTURE ORIENTED AND UNBIASED WITH VIBRANT BODIES AND SOUND MINDS.

    ALSO A WAKE UP CALL TO THE RICHEST OF THE WORLD:

    MAKE PEOPLE FRIENDLY INVESTMENTS IN POOR AND DEVELOPING COUNTRIES TO OFFER NEEDED PRODUCTS AND JOBS.SOME COUNTRIES LIKE PAKISTAN DO NOT EVEN HAVE BASIC NEEDS SUCH AS POTABLE WATER AND ELECTRICITY AS REQUIRED.THIS WOULD BE A GREAT CONTRIBUTION TOWARDS ACHIEVING PEACE AND HARMONY BETWEEN THE WORLD COMMUNITIES.

    STOP SIPHONING THE RESOURCES OF THESE UNDER PRIVILEGED NATIONS THRU THE INSTITUTION OF BANKING , LOANS AND FUNDING SCAMS AND MULTINATIONAL INVESTMENT CULTURE OF THE NAME SAKE.

    TAKE CARE OF THE NEEDY.

    THE EMPHASIS NEEDS TO BE SHIFTED TO MORALITY AND ETHICS,TO HONEST LIVING,TO LEGITIMATE THINKING PATTERNS,TO HEALTHY EATING AND DRINKING HABITS,TO DISCIPLINE IN WORKING AND SLEEPING ,TO JUDICIOUS SEXUAL BEHAVIOR.

    LIKE WE SHOULD BE MORE BUSY

    IN PREVENTING ILL HEALTH

    AND LESS FIGHTING SICKNESSES.

    SIMILARLY WE SHOULD BE MORE BUSY IN MAKING

    PEOPLE HAPPY AT LARGE AND SATISFIED AND

    LESS IN FIGHTING THOSE WHO ARE NOT SATISFIED.

    LET ME EXTEND A SUGGESTION AT THIS POINT OF TIME TO BE TAKEN UP AT THE UN GENERAL ASSEMBLY SESSION TO ALLEVIATE POVERTY THE WORLD OVER.THAT IS THE ENERGY RESOURCES OF THE WORLD TO BE DECLARED AS COMMON WEALTH OF ALL THE WORLD’S POPULATION , NOT LIMITED TO BUT INCLUDING NUCLEAR ENERGY ,OIL,GAS ,COAL AND ALL THE REST OF IT WITH EASY ACCESS TO ALL THE COUNTRIES BASED ON THEIR POPULATION STATISTICS.

    WHAT WE NEED IS THAT THE NUCLEAR ENERGY / NUCLEAR ELECTRICITY AND OIL SHOULD BE AVAILABLE TO ALL THE HUMANITY THRU UNITED NATIONS PRICING AND RATIONING CONTROL , CONSIDERED AS THE COMMON WEALTH OF ALL HUMAN BEINGS WITH FREE ACCESS AT AFFORDABLE PRICES..

    WITH MY PROFOUND REGARDS AND APOLOGIES FOR ANY UNPLEASANT WORDS,

    SINCERELY

    I share an excerpts article from Foreign Policy Magazine:
    For the last three decades, Afghans have not had a government that has enabled them to live conflict-free, and therefore have become accustomed to siding with anyone — the Taliban, international forces, local warlords — with whom they find temporary support. That support includes protection from other criminal gangs or quick services like dispute resolution mechanisms. In my January trip to one of the most far-flung districts of Wardak province, I met a family who travelled for three days around Ghazni to find one of the Taliban commanders from their area, looking for a resolution of an ongoing land dispute between two families. In half a day the commander was able to resolve a dispute that had lasted years, and the ‘winning’ family was able to grow crops on their fields again…….
    However, it is not only the absence of government that is problematic — appointed and elected representatives misuse their power and swim in an ocean of corruption. For Afghans to have a stake in their local governments there must be a basic level of trust between the two. This trust requires strong local governing structures that take Afghanistan’s ethnic and tribal diversity into account. One of the members of the provincial council from Ghazni told me this month that Ghazni’s security worsened during the times when governors came from other provinces to serve there, even though viable candidates from the province existed. The outside governors could not work within the dynamics of the ruling tribes in Ghazni and the people could not trust them. He said the governors “came today and will go tomorrow, but it’s us dealing with the same elders and tribes forever, so who would we be faithful to?”……….
    f non-military operations can demonstrate tangible achievements — meaning at a minimum an assurance for Afghans of protection by their local government, quick dispute resolution and at least apparent accountability in government structures — the Afghan public’s support for the Afghan mission will improve. If the government at the sub-national level can begin to provide a more promising life to Afghans, local people in the volatile southern regions will be better able to withstand militant pressure, and build a more stable and peaceful Afghanistan.

  • Asad Rehman  On October 20, 2010 at 5:23 am

    Afghan tribal loyalties are crucial for family and social survival. Although the Afghan kings were in power, they were not ‘rulers’ in the true sense of the word. The tribes were left apply their own customs and laws. Once a year they collected in the ‘Maidan’ of Kabul for the ‘Loy Jirga’ where they resolved their differences, with the King acting as an arbitrator. The tribes themselves participated in the ‘Jashn-e-Kabul’ (many Pakistanis used to cross the border for this also)..and then returned to their valleys to live undisturbed and ensure that no trouble makers hung around their area of responsibilty. Which is also why the Afghans never really developed a large standing Army..
    This land of Peace was easy pickings for the powers that be…and the Afghans have been suffering since…

    The Tribal culture MUST be revived..it is the only way to control the situation.

    • Laila  On October 20, 2010 at 5:57 am

      Bravo & well said Asad.
      Pakhtunwali or Pathanwali means “the way of the Pashtuns referring to the pre-Islamic religion, honor code and traditional lifestyle of the Pashtun people.It is also regarded as an ancient “code of life” or a non-written code of ethics that traditional Pashtuns follow.There are nine main principles of Pashtunwali.Though Pashtunwali is believed to date back to the pre-Islamic period, its usage or practice does not contravene basic Islamic principles.Pashtunwali is practiced by Pashtuns in Afghanistan and Pakistan, including by members of the Pashtun diaspora around the world.
      The real Pakhtun tribal backlash is in fact anti-Taliban. The raising of anti-Taliban lashkars is being done in many areas as a response to Taliban atrocities. As per demands of Pakhtunwali, these lashkars are raised in the spirit of ‘badal’ (revenge), the call to arms is under ‘azizwale’ (clanship), and they are backed by popular support through Jirgas. In terms of identity and cause, these lashkars are far more representative of the Pakhtuns than their ethnically diversified opposition.
      Through the bullet as well as the ballot, Pakhtuns have spoken overwhelmingly against the Taliban.
      “Over the centuries, trying to understand the Afghans and their country was turned into a fine art and a game of power politics by the Persians, the Mongols, the British,the Soviets and most recently the Pakistanis. But no outsider has ever conquered themor claimed their soul.” “Playing chess by telegraph may succeed, but making war and planning acampaign on the Helmand from the cool shades of breezy Shimla (in India) is anexperiment which will not, I hope, be repeated”.
      Since the establishment of modern Afghanistan in 1747 by Ahmad Shah Durrani (Abdali)in Kandahar, tribes have played an important role in installing and in deposing differentAfghan rulers. The tribes have also played an equally important role in establishing order in the country especially in those areas where the reach of government in terms ofsecurity and governance was low or non-existent. The “qawm” had a dual effect inAfghanistan’s history; on the one hand it has prevented the central government topromote modernity while on the other hand it has been a crucial “social capital” for theresilience of the Afghan society to external shocks such as war, drought and failedgovernance. 3 In the absence of functioning government since 1978 in most part of Afghanistan, thetribal and district structures which can be called as social capital network, have playedstrong role keeping security and governance. In most part of Afghanistan, tribal structureor locally established Shuras were the only source of social justice in the last 29 years oreven before than that.The tribal structures or Pakhtun code of conduct (Pakhtunwali/ Pashtunwali) is verystrong among Pakhtun majority and play a significant role which comprise of more than50 percent of Afghanistan’s population 4 . During the peaceful reign of King Zahir Shah(1933-1973), if a crime occurred in very remote part of the district or among the tribal boundary, the local elders were obliged to hand over the perpetrators to the government.This was despite the fact that even in those years, the government machinery was weakbut they had support of the people.The Pakhtun code of conduct is based on equality (Seyal) and applying equality is called(Seyali or competition). Equality, competition, protection of Namus (protection of femalemembers and wealth) and Ezzat (honor) are the centerpieces of Pakhtunwali. Othercomponents of Pakhtunwali are Gundi (rivalry); Qawm (ethnicity or tribe) or QawmiTaroon (tribal binding); protection of Hamsaya (neighbor or outsiders living with afamily or in a village); Jirga (meeting of elders to gather for a specific issue to solve);Pur, Ghach, Enteqam or Badal (revenge) and Nanawati (forgiveness). The applicationof these rules is called Narkh (informal or traditional law or rules), the implementation ofwhich is being the responsibility of a Jirga, Shura or government.These codes of conduct are an inherited way of life especially for the Pakhtuns in ruralareas of both side of the Durand Line. Even though, many scholars and writers havewritten extensively about these codes of conduct, to elaborate and explain these terms. Most of these termsare used in a string-like manner in which each term is connected to another one.I will write more later.

  • Dr Ghayyur Ayub  On October 20, 2010 at 8:01 am

    Jirga is an excellent idea; but I see the following problems;
    Religion especially its sectarian part has emerged very strongly in recent years after Talibanisation.
    The old type of Pakhtun Khans as centuries-old tribal chiefs have either been eliminated or politically suffocated downgrading the old culture of tribalism, giving chance for war lords to come up in the form of sectarianism, ethnicities and linguistics. Typical examples are Mullah Omar, Jalaludin, Ismail, Gulbadin Hikmatyar,Dostum, and many more from Panjsheri and other groups.
    Involving leaders like Mullah Omar or Hikmatyar as individuals is not practical; to start with they wont accept it and their exclusion will make it like the Jirgas arranged by Bush, Karzai and Musharaf in past..
    The idea of ‘reverse mujahideen’ is easy to be said than done.
    In any negotiation about the future of Afghanistan; Pakistan, Iran and three surrounding Central Asian States of Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan and Tajikistan cannot be ignored especially keeping the recent developments in Afghanistan. Those who may object to it being foreign powers should realise that America is also a foreign power.
    India should be kept out from any such negotiation, unless Pakistan agrees to its participation that brings solving the core issue of Kashmir.

  • S U Turkman  On October 20, 2010 at 8:04 am

    Its actually a baseless claim that no Foreign Power has ruled Afghanistan. Whoever claims this does not know history of Afghanistan and does not know Afghanistan actually extends up to River Indus. There are more decedents of Afghans living in Pakistan’s PukhToon Khwah Province then there are in Afghanistan under Foreign Rule since 1834. These people do not know, until 1834 Peshawar was an Afghan City.
    The best solution is …
    1. Bring son of Zahir Shah from Italy and install him as King of Afghanistan.
    2. Invite all Tribal Leaders for ‘BaiyT’, which is 100% Islamic Tradition.
    3. Whoever refuses to be loyal to the King, behead him in front of rest of them to make an example out of him.
    4. Then, announce Elections.
    5. The King would be Commander in Chief of Afghan Army but should not interfere in Domestic Politics as long all are loyal to him.
    6. After Elected Government is installed he should become a ceremonial Monarch like European Monarchs.
    7. European Monarchs have not dismissed any Elected Government but they do have that power so King of Afghanistan should also retain that power and should dismiss any government that he thinks does not suit the people of Afghanistan.
    .
    This is the system Afghans can understand, not a Democracy without a Constitutional Monarch. Plain and simple.
    The Problem with giving too much power in hands of Tribal Chief would turn out to be a mischief and Feudal Landlords would carve the country in to their smaller lawless domains. After that, they would build their own private Armies and would start attacking each other. Therefore, its not a solution. Its taking Afghanistan 1000 years back.

      The population of Afghanistan is around 28,395,716 as of the year 2010. It is a multi-ethnic and multi-lingual society, reflecting its location astride historic trade and invasion routes between Western Asia, Central Asia, and Southern Asia. The majority of Afghanistan’s population consist of the Iranic peoples, notably the Pashtuns and Tajiks. The Pashtun is the largest group followed by Tajik, Hazara, Uzbek, Aimak, Turkmen, Baloch and others.

      Islam is the religion of 99.7% of Afghanistan. An estimated 80-89% of the population practice Sunni Islam and belong to the Hanafi Islamic law school while 10-19% are Shi’a.
      Excluding urban populations in the principal cities, most Afghans are organized into tribal and other kinship-based groups, which follow their own traditional customs: for instance Pashtunwali.
      The term “Afghan”, historically synonymous with “Pashtun”, is today the national identity of Afghanistan.
      Despite being of various ethnicities, in a research poll that was conducted in Afghanistan in 2009, 72% of the population labelled their identity as Afghan first, before ethnicity.
      The modern Afghan national identity is derived from the rise of the Pashtun Hotaki and Durrani dynasties, especially with the establishment of the Durrani Empire (Afghan Empire) in the early-18th century. From 1747 until 1826, Ahmad Shah Durrani and his descendants held the monarchy in direct session. They were the first rulers of a Pashtun dominated sovereign state and were later replaced by the Pashtun Barakzai dynasty.
      Therefore Mr TURKMAN, read history before sowing your pearls of wisdom!

      Rubbish!
      Kingship indeed!
      Muhammadzai are the strongest tribe there-let me warn though,steer clear of the Ex King’s direct family.There is too much water under the bridge to reverse history.

  • Asad Rehman  On October 20, 2010 at 8:57 am

    The Durrani dynasty (both Mohammadzai and Sadozai) had a constant conflict with the Mullah element in Afghan history. Thisis also why the Brits tried to exploit this by bringing in the Mullah ‘Shorbazar’ as the ruler at one time. He was disposed off by the Afghans themselves in no time…and they reverted their loyalties back to the Durrani king.
    The Durranis are still respected by the modern Afghan, as they tried to change the country (Kings Amanullah, Abdurrehman etc) and bring it to the modern age…they succeeded to a certain extent but get caught up in Regional politics, WW2. the Cold War and the rest s history.
    The Afghans woild now welcome peace…which can only come when their own people, who they have trusted for centuries come back and lead them. Those who don’t want this to happen are the followers of those families who have been intriguing for more than a century to knock the Durranis off (yes, the descendent of ‘shorbazar’ still hang out around Kabul and Bagram and the Gailani Pirs intrigue in their London and Paris appartments).

    We all feel anger and being unable to do anything frustration over takes; the world has always been like this and humans shall not change. A study of History shows nothing ever changes in substance; only forms change. Only when a society is blessed with noble mind (s ) can there be peace and tranquility. Some generations are lucky and are given good leaders; some like us get leaders like Bush and ???????? and the peoples suffer……so suffer we must as it is our own doing; we have chosen and supported third raters because we ourselves are third raters…high on rhetoric and poor in substance……Can anyone point out two or four Ameen & Sadiq leaders in the ENTIRE Ummah?? Are we ourselves Ameen and Sadiq ? but we expect others to be !!!
    Yes, situation looks bleak and hopeless; noble and honest conduct is not any religion/cast/nationality specific. It all comes from within us…so ask yourself…if we are scum of the earth so we will be treated…
    I tell my Harvard/Preston educated grand children..” Yes, things are bad; worst than what you can say..BUT when you come from US of A and go to Mama’s kitchen for a cup of coffee, you find total mess and filth all over………………….Now, you can pack your bags and fly back to the Dreamland or say to yourself ” this is MY HOUSE, if Mama cannot keep it clean I will get down on my knees and clean it up….”THE CHOICE IS YOURS!!!! Today our young man can neither speak good English nor correct Urdu. We are worst than orphans; we have no moorings and no substance in our lives….
    Two things are easiest in life..(A) Criticism and (B) Escape from a problem
    Nations and societies are not built in days and months; it takes generations; how long it took america from the Declaration of Independence to the United States of America ??
    As a nation we have become morons; we are like a rudderless ship; we have neither pride nor character. We are big in rhetoric but poor in substance; if anything we still think we are the Great Moghuls ! Only thing we excel is corruption, target killings and total inefficiency..
    My advice: Let us all look First inside ourselves and only afterwards raise our finger at others. We must understand our strength and our limitations
    Is someone listening???????????????????

      Ji Ji Sir but how is this related to subject under question?

  • Bajwa  On October 20, 2010 at 11:35 am

    Let Afghans come with an Afghan solution and the world would be too happy to look at it. Since they have messed up things for themselves by toppling one regime after another, and genrally blaming Pakistan and US it is doubtful that they can find a solution.It is basically an unnatural state hammered together by Ahmed Shah Abdali.They will go the Yugoslav way. States are like galaxies. They are always disintegrating.The only hope for this region is to go for a BENELUX type arrangement and devote themselves to development of the lot of their people, rather than playing buzkashi like their illustrious predecessors

    • SAMEEH  On October 20, 2010 at 11:36 am

      I think the writers have hit on a Gr8 idea but who is there to listen? US is already negotiating with Taliban. Do you think this solution will bring peace to the region?

  • Anwer Sultan Kadri  On October 20, 2010 at 2:14 pm

    The Afghan situation is more complicated than thought and the three decades of fighting has torn the moral equilibrium of the Afghans and no longer the elders are the people who call the shots but warlords with more firepower and money so the moral fabric has changed. The Soviets had done some damage to the Afghan educated class and the American and Europeans have completed the incomplete Soviet job. The carrot and the stick rule has to be applied but that from within the Afghan groups because no outsider or their imposed solution no matter howsoever good and beneficialwould be acceptable to the Afghans. True that Afghans are tired of war wand want peace but the withdrawal of foriegn troops would only be the first step towards peace which will be a time consuming process and will come with a cost.

  • Inam Khan  On October 20, 2010 at 2:31 pm

    In all probability Americans are going to establish a strong cantonment in Kabul and support a local government there and let the warlords run the rest of the country with active partnership in terms of monetary support.

  • KHAN ZIA  On October 23, 2010 at 6:37 am

    All of these are red herrings. The future of Afghanistan can only be decided by the Afghans in their own way. All it requires is for the occupation troops to withdraw and hand over the country to the UN. The fact that this eminently common-sense solution is never mentioned or discussed is a clear indication that the motive is not to bring peace to the country but to perpetuate the occupation in some form. The continuation of the strife also serves an important secondary purpose —- destruction of Pakistan’s economy and internal cohesion. The rest is all baloney.

    Gentlemen,

    SOUTH ASIA AND GULF- PERCEIVED AS FUTURE NUCLEAR WAR ZONE.

    Our Region is grown an abyss of fire, because of the U S vested interests and military presence in South Asia and Gulf.
    Precautionary measures, HOW TO STOP THE INTERRUPTION, ATROCITIES,BRUTALITIES AND SAVAGERIES IN THIS REGION.

    Leaders of 5-N P Five Nuclear Powers being close neighbors of this region / zone baring immense crisis must unanimously work for the HARMONY, PEACE, POLITICAL STABILITY, AND PROSPERITY OF THIS REGION.

    Leaders of 5-N P must take immediate action to refrain the induction of collusion forces in and around the precious countries of this region as situation has already been built up in the areas like IRAQ, AFGHANISTAN, AND PAKISTAN.

    Leaders of this Region must call for a special conference to eliminate Super Power’s interruption and involvement in this Region as practiced in IRAQ AND AFGHANISTAN.

    The agenda of the conference must include the PROSPERITY and PEACE of our Region particularly in PAKISTAN and must not allow any sort of interference and involvement of international agencies of various governments specially their interruption in our sensitive national projects, as they are making statements in the print and electronic media. We must shorn off their dictations and terms elaborating to our national politicians time to time for their benefits.

    United States of America is fully responsible for all atrocities, brutalities and savageries, instabilities, in the areas of crisis. On the other hand Pakistani leading class is involved in a conflict between personal gain with national gain.
    Sincerely,

    Dr.M.Shahbaz Mirza

      Dear Sir,
      while I fully agree with your contention, I must submit that merely demanding that other powers pull out of the region will not make it happen. We, the people of Pakistan, through our elected representatives, will need to formulate policies that ensure our independence through a vibrant economy, and make us capable of charting our own future.
      With help from the likes of you, this party, if given the opportunity, intends to attempt to achieve that objective.
      With regards.
      Shaukat Qadir,
      on behalf of,
      Nadeem Qureshi,
      Chairman, Mustaqbal Pakistan

      • Dr M S Mirza  On October 29, 2010 at 2:16 am

        Gentlemen,

        Thanks for your comments.
        After the end of cold war, End of Warsaw pact, Fall of Soviet union, And fall of the Berlin wall, and unification of F.R. Germany.
        Almost whole European countries are the active members of EC including Eastern Europe, are members of NATO alliance including Turkey.

        NATO Alliance and military cooperation is designed for SOUTH ASIA AND GULF not for Europe. And we must remember the glimpse of history of second world war.
        Rising of CHINA in South Asia is a clear threat to USA as supper power, Russia at present relaxing as a super power of past.

        Cooperation and co-ordination between 5-N P’s (Five Nuclear Powers) are earnestly required to stop the present influence,interruption, of American and NATO Strategy in our zone of South Asia and Gulf.

        Elected political representatives of Pakistan are not groomed as Strategists, their caliber and capabilities are not hidden.

        SUGGESTED PRECAUTIONARY MEASURES OF( A S R S M )ACADEMY FOR STRATEGIC RESEARCH STUDIES & MANAGEMENT
        AND( P O L )PAKISTAN OVERSEAS LEAGUE ALREADY DELIVERED TO THE PRESIDENTS OF THE NEIGHBORING COUNTRIES OF 5 N P’s NUCLEAR POWERS PAKISTAN + CHINA + IRAN + RUSSIA + INDIA.

        Thanks and remain,

    “The future of Afghanistan can only be decided by the Afghans in their own way.”

    That is the entire point of the white paper written by the NWSC. Th UN is dominated by the West so I don’t see how much difference that would make. Afghans are saying they want to decide their own future. They want to go to a neutral unoccupied territory to select a new leader and form a government. Afghans no longer want to live under the rule of the U.S. puppet in Kabul but they don’t want to live under the rule of the Saudi-Pakistani puppet in Quetta.

      Thank you Michael, for putting up the presence.Good inputs & views by readers.

  • S U Turkman  On October 29, 2010 at 7:12 am

    Right, right. Expansionist Policy of Pakistan had nothing to do with formation of Taliban by ISI in 1994 and their infiltration in to Afghanistan with support of Division of Pak Army disguised as them in 1996 and constant poking India with infiltration of Sneak Attack Terrorist JehaaDis.
    Its USA’s fault that she has kicked us and our Taliban out of Afghanistan to free Afghans from our Taliban’s Savage rule. USA should leave Afghanistan so, we can take over Afghanistan against wishes of Afghans or we are going to keep backstabbing her with our Taliban, despite that we have been living off her Charity of Aid since 1953 and Charity of Loans since 1955, of which we have not paid back a Penny so far, right?
    Peace of South Asia is in jeopardy if India does not give us her Kashmir in a Platter and we Beggars are going to threaten the world with a Nuclear War, right?

    • KAMAL KHAN  On October 29, 2010 at 12:22 pm

      Turkman,

      Your blabbing without any sense is now becoming unbearable. It seems you were a slave of the Americans who are now facing a crisis situation here both economically as well as politically.
      USA/UK/UN/EUROPE all are Run by Jews and thus will Never hurt ISRAELI interest but in fact will Aid and Promote them. You are pro Jewish is clear. We have Nuclear Capability and Now IRAN also has Nuclear Capability (Over 300 “DIRTY BOMBS”) and their First target come whatever will be ISRAEL as every Muslims target should be “Come Whatever” , That is what keeps everyone away. USA Could not handle Iraq and Ran Away now even AFGHANISTAN is screwing them so badly that they want to run away (which I bet you will see in the next couple of years). USA wants Pakistan again to be kept holding the bag and this time round Guess what USA IS SCREWED.
      Look at the human Rights atrocities they have committed in IRAQ . Murderers , rapists, Torturers and To Top it of Most Corrupt Nation in this world considering the Civilians and children they have killed. Even in Afghanistan they killed Civilians and cut of their fingers as mementoes.
      Currupting is ripe in USA as they even killed their Own people in 9/11 and LIED to gain control of Middle East for the protection of ISRAEL.

      You are a Moron to believe otherwise.

    I have to read through this but it looks awesome. Mr. Nouri I know from the fb group Friend’s of Afghanistan, and appears to be a very trustable source of the current workings within Afghanistan. With his permission I also want to publish the white paper on restoring tribal balance on my blog page it compliments my blog Rethinking Afghanistan? Why? It’s purpose was to explain why Canadians were in Afghanistan to my friends who were unaware of our full mission there
