Who authorized US to spread democracy in its way ? Who approved US concepts of fighting terrorism ?! US is mixing both legal resistance against occupation as in Lebanon , Palestine , Iraq, and Afghan with American president, and terrorism that the whole world is against .
We expect no peace in Afghanistan , unless Nato and US forces are pulled out, and UN to take charge instead.

No cut in U.S. force in Afghanistan soon


WASHINGTON, Sept. 23 (UPI) -- The head of coalition military operations in Afghanistan says growth by the Taliban means U.S. forces will have to remain at current levels into next year.

Lt. Gen. Karl Eikenberry said no reductions would be possible until at least March, the Washington Post reported. The general gave the assessment during a news conference at the Pentagon.

"You do have challenges where Taliban has moved into an area you could perhaps call vacuum, or at least very weak governance," Eikenberry said. "In some areas there are more Taliban extremists than there were at this point last year. And within some areas they ... demonstrated better command-and-control and they're fighting harder."

The United States has 20,000 soldiers in Afghanistan, the highest level since the invasion in 2001. The Afghan government security forces number 76,000.
