the United States and fundamentalists agreed on two basic conditions: Washington will withdraw most of its troops from Afghanistan, the Taliban pledge not to allow the Country to harbor terrorist organizations decided to plan terrorist attacks abroad. In appearance, it is the necessary basis to then go forward with the negotiations, involving the government in Kabul. But it is clear that the capacity to contract is impaired, to say the least, if the context disappears, the possible protection of the military of the West. The use of force, at this point, it becomes more difficult for the recognized government, which can rely on its troops, but will mainly rely on the spread of fatigue for almost two decades of fighting. It is all too easy to predict that even after a general agreement on the “aftershocks” will be strong. But this time, a thread of optimism appears to be legitimate.
entire Generations grew up without even understanding precisely what it means to say “peace”. And also the older ones retain countless memories of the conflict, from the soviet invasion to the civil war. When the weapons have fallen silent, it was for short periods of time. Or maybe they have no space left to abuse, at the time of the mullah Omar. Silent kalashnikov, spoke to the scudiscio of the “Police for the suppression of vice and protection of virtue”, which is punished by whipping the women dressed in an “immodest”. The Taliban, at least in appearance, are ready to take the visions of the most tolerant, but among women in afghanistan, concerns remain.
In the next few hours we will know the details and the reactions of the first agreement. For now, is to be recorded, only the hope. Tomorrow is a significant anniversary: march 1, 2001, the Taliban gave substance to the “declaration of war” against the world, initiating the destruction of the Buddhas of Bamiyan, a unesco world heritage list of Unesco and a symbol of coexistence between different faiths. Afghanistan deserves in the History books enter a new date, and that the chapter of the suffering finally is closed.
