US POLICY FOR POLITICAL DEVELOPMENT IN AFGHANISTAN

2

Introduction
US Policy Regarding Political Development in Afghanistan is meant to solve the issues of
political instability in the country and ensure the security of the US. The policy was immediately
implemented after al-Qaida attacked the US in 2011. In this regard, the US Congress ordered
military forces to attack the terrorists who were planning attacks in the US and Afghanistan. The
policy led to the restoration of Afghanistan, where the Taliban protected the most wanted terrorist
leader – Osama bin Laden (Dörre et al., 2012). Over the last is years, the policy has been effective
due to the contribution of multiple military commanders, three US administration, and various
Afghanistan governments. Approximately 3,600 US and NATO troops have been killed, among
tens of thousands of Afghans. In this regard, this study explores the reasons for initiating changes
to policy and policy options.
Reasons for Initiating Changes
Although the US policy in Afghanistan has encouraged political, economic, and security
progress in Afghanistan, several changes must be initiated to sustain long-term stability and
eliminate Taliban power. In this regard, the US will benefit from the Long-term restoration of
peace in Afghanistan. The changes will promote US progress by emphasizing the security and
integrity of the people of Afghanistan (Khan et al., 2015). Through initiating changes to the policy,
there the US manages to end the conflicts and terrorist threats in Afghanistan successfully. In this
regard, the following are specific reasons for initiating changes to the current US Policy Regarding
Political Development in Afghanistan.
i.

Enhancing Prosperity in Afghanistan

The current US engagement in Afghanistan has managed to restore security to the country.
However, the policy is not effective in breaking the barriers to long-term security stability since

the Afghanistan military is not strong enough to eliminate Taliban insurgency (Afzali et al., 2019).
In this regard, the US should implement changes that empower Afghanistan military to ensure its
effectiveness in managing security in the country, without the US involvement. This change will
help establish independent governance that can make laws and enforce laws, ensure order and
justice, and discourage corruption in Afghanistan.
ii.

Shaping the Future of Afghanistan

The current US policy in Afghanistan is not effective in shaping the future of the country.
For example, the State of Affairs advises the US and its allies to contribute at least $5 billion
annually to help reduce the inconvenience of Kabul (Dörre et al., 2012). Although the advice is
relevant to the current situation (political instability) in Afghanistan, it may not sustain the
community in the future. The US should avoid planning for its future engagement in Afghanistan,
but encourage the country to prevent depending on foreign affairs. Therefore, initiating changes to
the current policy will enable become a more independent country in the future.
