ISLAMABAD Little expectations can be pinned on the Afghan reconciliation 'package envisaged in Kabul Conference. Commitments, pledges and reiterations made during the event are but the replays of the recent past. While Kabul Conference envisages reconciliation with Taliban, withdrawal of troops by 2014 and some administrative reforms, the stark flaws and contradictions evident in the conference do not characterise the event to be evaluated on a positive note as far as its outcomes are concerned. Ironically, the statement of NATOs Secretary General, Anders Fogh Rasmussen that NATO forces would stay in Afghanistan even after military control is handed over to Afghan forces came right in the middle of the Kabul Conference when the delegates were discussing troops withdrawal and pull-out strategy. While NATO Chiefs reckless stance thoroughly projects US agenda, the lack of trust in NATO and US shown by Afghanistans immediate neighbours, particularly Iran, signifies that any bid to strive for peace in Afghanistan without the redressal of genuine concerns of neighbouring states would remain a far-fetched notion. Irans Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki had criticised NATO and the US troops for having failing to defeat Taliban despite the lapse of nine years, which increased violence in Afghanistan instead of bringing stability. Besides, Pakistans offer to play a role in Afghanistan did not go well with Indo-US nexus and during his recent visit, NATOs SG once again expressed his 'desire for Pakistan to open up a military front in North Waziristan. He also reiterated, yet again, that NATO would not isolate Afghanistan 'prematurely. Earlier in January, London Conference on Afghanistan evolved the same patterns of superficial commitments and assurances. Like Kabul Conference, London Moot had also suggested involvement of Afghanistans immediate neighbours in its affairs, administrative reforms, eliminating corruption and troops withdrawal. The Moot was not attended by Iran, and India was deliberately kept at bay in the London Moot and the country kept a 'low profile during the recent Kabul International Conference. Pakistans political and military leadership remained contented with Pakistans would-be military presence in Afghanistan in the light of provisions laid down in the Conference. The days that followed only ascertained how the well thought-out arrangement set by Indo-US nexus not only marginalized Pakistans role in Afghanistan but exerted immense pressure on the former to go for a military adventure or rather a misadventure in NWA. The obsession of India and US for Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) and its 'offshoots in Pakistan deepened with every passing day till Hillary Clinton had the audacious nerve to establish Osamas presence in Pakistan. Barely three days after Kabul Conference is over, worst nightmares have begun to haunt US Joint Chiefs of Staff Admiral Mike Mullen about triggering of Indo-Pak conflict by LeTs offshoots in Pakistan. And, adding 'worth to Hillary Clintons audacity, US State Departments Spokesperson Philip Crowley presumes Osamas presence in the tribal belt between Pakistan and Afghanistan, to possibly engage Pakistan in NWA to hunt Osama. The synch of well-plotted events is to repeat itself again.
