Angela Merkel Do Not Harm Afghans

T
he Afghan political and security situations especially in the northern Afghanistan is dramatically deteriorated when ISIS started exodus from eastern parts of Afghanistan to the northern components of the country, recently Taliban, Haqani Network, Al-Qaida and ISIS have doubled their combined offensive attacks and gaining more territories and Kabul regime and its international allies losing grounds day by day and the peace talks have had no satisfactory domino effects.

Moreover, the latest sophisticated motor vehicle attack on German consulate in   Mazar-e-Sharif province in the north of Afghanistan killed dozens and wounded hundreds of Afghan civilians and in retaliation the Bundeswehr murdered two civilians while injuring scores the incident indicates that how far is to reach a peaceful deal and how well-built the above said terrorist networks have become honestly saying it is not a surprise at least for me as it has been for German military strategists, I was aware that Germany will face the music one day, long before all through my stay in Germany I had expressed my concerns with German authorities specially during a meeting with an official of the German defense ministry I addressed that German assets specially the diplomatic entities of the country will be attacked by the so-called terrorist cells the held meeting was also witnessed by Julie Hoffmann the head of AWO, as a counter-terrorism expert I enlightened the bureaucrats that the shift in the foreign policy of Germany would cause backlashes, but the official arrogantly responded that my concerns are died-out and his country is well prepared for any attacks of this sort and is ready to respond, other than the recent attack on German Consulate illustrate how well they are organized to avert the attack.

However Taliban claimed the responsibility of the mentioned assault but there are sources who suspect that Taliban have not carried out the attack alone rather the regional countries have also been engaged for the reason that the more Germany is engrossed beyond its traditional territory (west Europe) for instance in Middle-east, Africa, South-Central Asia, east Europe and the Balkan region and further closer to the Russian borders to impair Russian and its allies national interests and security the more it will turn out to be vulnerable to the assaults as a result German citizens, NGOs and Diplomatic units will be targeted around the globe in the coming future because Germany untraditionally has sent troops to Afghanistan, South-Sudan, Somalia, East Europe and recently to Syria to train Kurdish militia to simultaneously fight the Assad regime and ISIS, furthermore Germany has followed the foot-steps of Uncle Sam in the world affairs meanwhile it has signed number of arm deals with Saudi-Arabia and other Gulf states they have all made the country to be more susceptible to the counterattacks.

Albeit Germany is a soft target for the terrorists networks, as ISIS recruits the frustrated Muslim societies in the country but the German parliament (Bundestag) and cabinet on 16 of November this year made a decision to extend the federal defense ministry mission tell 2017 in Afghanistan and according to some sources Germany plans to send more troops to Afghanistan as there is an old saying “more troops more wars” hence it ought to propel more body-bags to the country meantime Germany has decided to expel Afghan asylum-seekers and refugees as part of its depopulation strategy “ to depopulate Germany from Afghan refugees” Germany wants to send the refugees back to the war-torn Afghanistan those who arrive to the motherland due to corruptions, jobbery nepotism, injustice and the lack of employment potential would join Taliban, ISIS and Al-Qaida and there would be more human losses on both sides and Germany will be responsible for all such fatalities.

Consequently Afghanistan does not need more foreign troops there were hundred thousands of them for the last decade stationed in the country but Afghans have not experienced peace, stability and economic prosperity rather destructions, collateral damages and humanitarian disaster, However German Chancellor Angela Merkel with the out-going American president Barak Husain Obama throughout the news conference on November 17th in Berlin reiterated her commitment of the political resolution of the Afghan conflict but Afghanistan needs candidly comprehensive political settlement which is unfortunately far from to be attained at least in the coming decade.
