Afghan Editorial: President’s Wrong Decision is destructing the Country
Hamid Karzai lashes out on international community for making fraud during the August 20 election but afterward while talking to US foreign secretary on the telephone has assured her that both countries have strategic partnership, according to an editorial in the Dari-language Afghan daily.
Karzai’s recent talks in southern Kandahar province have once again proven that the blurred policy is still existed between Afghanistan and the west because Karzai has called on the Taliban to take themselves out of foreigners control as he did it.
Karzai by this way warns that if his demands are not met by US and parliament he will play the dangerous game of joining with Taliban but still its not clear that whether the president is serious in what he said or just want to take privileges from the west by saying such things as before.
The president in fact has destroyed all his backward bridges and now as a result for sure he will surrender to Taliban or may leave the power and these both decisions will take the country out of the legal track and people of this country will be affected from its negative consequences.
President Hamid Karzai has to know that he can never get the confidence of the Taliban and al-Qaeda with expressing such words and he also can not take himself out of history’s pages.
All what Karzai has said during the past few days can lead the country into destruction which is against the people’s ideas so the majority of Afghans are opposing on what he said and Karzai will be responsible for all negative consequences.
People also must not let that their future can be destroyed with expressing of such words.

Afghan Editorial: America Want To Genocide Pushtoons
The US special representative to Afghanistan and Pakistan Richard Holbrook has finally unveiled the decision of his government about Pushtoons.
The words that he expressed while speaking to Havard University on the 5th of March does not mean anything except the genocide of Pushtoons.
Holbrook said every Pushtoon family on the both side of the Dewarand Line (the joint border between Afghanistan and Pakistan) has at least one member who has linkages with Taliban and Taliban are part of the Pushtoon society which can not be separated. America is not share in the reconciliation program of the Afghan government but this is Karzai’s draft of peace with Taliban because he himself is Pushtoon.
These words exactly mean that America has intention to kill all Pushtoons home by home.
Holbrook is one among those responsible for the division of former Yugoslavia and is sent to Afghanistan and Pakistan for a particular purpose. And now it’s clear from his speeches that his purpose is to eradicate Pushtoons and eliminate them from political and economical fields.
During August 20 presidential election in Afghanistan, Holbrook said before any announced result that the election will go to the second round and that time also he was trying to undermine the election process because Karzai was the winner and probably he was not good for the American’s interests.
After he destroyed the legitimacy and transparency of the election, Holbrook was busy in some forms of activities in both Afghanistan and Pakistan to bring the stability of this region under question.
When he went to Karachi city of Pakistan recently, that time the same rumors had been spread widely that he was discussing and helping with officials of Muhajer Ghorzang (Refugees Movement) about the eradicating and dismantling of Pushtoons.
By the time Richard Holbrook was in Karachi, hundreds of shops and business centers of Pushtoons were destroyed and put on fire and many Pushtoons were killed.
So with his recent comment now there is no doubt that Richard Holbrook is trying and has a program to destroy Afghan nation specially the Pushtoons.
When Afghan officials proposed peace talks, meanwhile massive operations have been started in the southern Helmand province and this show clearly that what is behind the curtain. Afghan nation should look to this issue carefully and should have a good stance.
But one thing that we are 100% percent confident and sure is that every invader has been defeated here, every proud and deluded has been broken down here and there for we are very much sure that it will be clear tomorrow that any one who disrespect to this nation will lose his pride and dignity.

This new law draws the same punishment for alcoholic drinkers as it is for the drugs users.

Taliban Former Foreign Minister: Its Too Late for Peace
Wakeel Ahmad Mawtawakil the former foreign minister during the Taliban regime has said that now it’s too late for peace talks between the Afghan government and Taliban, according a Dari-language Afghan daily.

Even peace talks with Taliban have been proposed by Afghan government and international community since several years but Taliban foreign minister accuses the officials for superficial attitude toward peace adding that peace talks issue is just been used as motto by Afghan government.
Recently Robert Gates, the US secretary of Defense has said that peace talks with Mullah Omer is impossible but Wakeel Ahmad Mawtawakil called these words the words of no confidence on Taliban. He added that this no confidence between Taliban and America prolonged the war in Afghanistan.
He insisted that America understands that the distance between them and America become very much increased now a day.
He pointed to the UN black list and added that this black list made a big obstacle against peace and reconciliation process. In regard to the moderate Taliban he pointed to that Pashtu-language proverb that sweets and candies are not distributed in the battle field. He said it not possible to divide Taliban into moderate and severe in this war condition.
In regard to the new peace draft made by the Afghan government he said if there is any thing new in this draft then it’s ok but if all the things are old then it won’t have any result without wasting the time.
He also said that special focus should be on peace talks rather than fights in London conference. He concluded that foreign troops should leave the war and work together with the government of Afghanistan to find better ways for peace and reconciliations if not this current crisis will continue.

Afghan Editorial: Afghan Defense and Interior Ministers Should Resign
Several terrorists entered Kabul city yesterday and targeted the civilian property and innocent people. This attack started with small and heavy weapons shooting from the top roof of a shopping center located close to the presidential palace and continued by suicide attacks in different parts of the city.
Ambulance is also used in these coordinated suicide attacks. Terrorists’ attacks with these equipments show that some government officials also helped with these terrorists. Terrorists entered the Kabul city with suicide vests, rocket grenades and weapons by all those routs which are carefully been monitored by police. Or maybe these terrorists might be equipped inside the city.
If the security belts around this city is carefully made, monitored and all the vehicles are being checked so it wont be possible for terrorists to enter the city with suicide vests and rocket propelled grenades inside the city and launch the big scale terrorist attacks.
The ministers of interior and defense, who are recently approved once again by the MPs through any possible deal, remember that no body could have the courage to enter even leaflets to Kabul city during the Taliban or Communist regimes in the past.
But today even though more than 30 countries have troops inside Afghanistan, Taliban could easily enter to the heart of the Kabul city with different kinds of weapons and threat those who are living inside the presidential palace.
On the other hand Taliban conducted this operation while President Hamid Karzai has almost completed a peace draft with Taliban and will bring it to discussion in the London conference.
Taliban with yesterday’s attack replied to Karzai’s this new peace proposal with no which means that they are not ready to sit for peace talks because they have specific aims in Afghanistan.
The Afghan government instead of the killing of the terrorists acting diplomatically with terrorists released them from prisons and did not reward them perfectly.
This incapable policy of the government caused the big presence of terrorists in the battle field and spread the insecurity much more than before.
Because of these points the following things are to propose:
1- Both ministers of interior and defense must resign as soon as possible and those should come instead of them who are capable to defeat the enemy.
2- Instead of peace draft with Taliban, ways to eradicate the terrorists should be discussed in the London conference.
3- Britain and their spies are supporting the Taliban and there for they must not be let to rescue the leaders of the Taliban.
If these three suggestions are not accepted we will be witnesses of more such attacks in Kabul and security officials will turn them in their success in order to keep their posts in the government.

Afghan Daily: Taliban Doesn’t Have Authority of Negotiations But ISI Does
President Hamid Karzai once again proposed peace talks with Taliban. But this time Hamid Karzai wanted from the international community to help him make this negotiation productive.
Anytime Afghan government proposed peace talks with Taliban, Taliban have rejected these peace talks and added that they will not participate in these talks if foreign forces do not withdraw from Afghanistan.
We think as we said before that Taliban set this condition only to escape from peace talks because they don’t have the authority to participate in peace talks because they are the playing items or toys of ISI.
ISI created Taliban in order to implement its strategy in Afghanistan and in the region and for this reason Taliban have destroyed all the economic and cultural institutions of this country during their regime by the order of ISI.
Therefore if Afghan government want to propose peace talks, so its better to propose it directly to ISI rather than Taliban.
