Afghanistan between optimism and defeatism

Tomáš ZIPFEL

The article deals with the situation in Afghanistan and the possibilities of particular parties in the crisis. The initial part presents the current status which is characterized by increasing activities of opposition militia forces and by growing civilian and coalition casualties. The second part introduces possible strategies with respect to the different character of various opposition groups, represented by conservative-nationalistic formations that are a subject for possible negotiation as well as jihadist groups that have to be eliminated. The following section focuses at expected stance of ongoing US administration towards possible arrangement and potential US strategies of exit. The last passage of the article addresses the necessary measures for any successful solution of the Afghan issue.
