Unlike the war in Iraq which had entered its last stage, the

war in Afghanistan appears to have several open ends. The

security situation in Afghanistan has deteriorated greatly and no

comprehensive political outcome has yet arrived. By early 2009,

several members of Congress, the officials of the administration

and the outside experts had concluded that the efforts known

as the America's ''other war'' required great national attention.

In the inaugural address speech, the US President Barrack

Obama had stated that the United States would forge a

hard-earned peace in Afghanistan.

For the Afghanistan government, the war was an existential

struggle for survival against the Taliban and other insurgents as

well as the long-term efforts for the establishment of sustainable

security and great stability. For the US government, the war in

Afghanistan was concerned about the security of both

Afghanistan and the surrounding regions. The concern also

included the denial of the safe heaven to the terrorists and in

ensuring the stable and constructive regional security balance.

For the regional states which included Russia and India as well

as the immediate neighbors of Afghanistan including Pakistan

and Iran, the war in Afghanistan is critical as it can have a

powerful impact on the future security and the balance of

influence and power in the region. For the individual members

of the NATO Alliance, the war might be the combination of

defeating the terrorist networks, proving themselves as efficient

NATO members, ensuring the regional stability and

demonstrating the relevance of the Alliance of the security

challenges of the 21st century.

Looking ahead, the United States government faces several

operational and strategic decisions about the further engagement

of Afghanistan in war. Some of the decisions include:

Clarification of the national interests of the United States in

Afghanistan and the surrounding regions.

The definition of the clear strategic objectives which are

based on the specified national interests.

The determination of the military, economic and diplomatic

approaches which need to be adopted and what resources

are committed to supporting the various kinds of approaches.

The prioritization of the war in Afghanistan war in

comparison to the imperatives of the national securities which

would include the war in Iraq and the preparation to meet

the potential threats.

The helping of the marshal in a coordinated application of

the international efforts.

The United States has argued over the security of Afghanistan

since decades. As the world is working on building the national

security in Afghanistan and the neighboring areas along with

the local defense forces, there is still a great need to redouble

the efforts at building up and strengthening the Afghan human

capital and the proper institution of governance that would be

able to stand up on its own one day as an effective and

independent government.
