It is now clear as the broad day light that nothing can happen in the Kabul Administration without the consent of the Americans. These range from nomination and appointment of high ranking officials, enactment of laws to formulation of all military, political and social programs and their implementation. Even Karzai is not able to nominate a governor of a province, or a provincial police chief or intelligence Head without prior agreement and affirmation of American generals, let alone nominating cabinet members and deputy-ministers who are routinely introduced by the American embassy in Kabul before commencement of their official appointment procedure. In short, Karzai is divested of authority, ironically to the extent that he is not able to appoint his government officials. Moreover, he can’t release a single prisoner from Bagram, Kandahar, Guantanamo and Pulli-Charkhi jails. So it is unambiguously beyond his authority to keep on the peace process with the opposition, the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan, still more until the achievement of a tangible result!

Karzai knows that the current Taliban Resistance is not aimed at achieving some material goals like property, power, wealth, international stature nor it is being waged for tribal feuds but it is a common reaction to the illegitimate occupation of Afghanistan by the Americans and the presence of more than one hundred thousands soldiers in the country. The Afghans, both men and women, will never, accept the presence of foreign troops on their land or bow to them even for a while though decades may fleet. But Karzai has not been tired of not repeating his demand for so-called pseudo-reconciliation, none the less his knowing pretty well the nature of the stand of the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan.

He makes his assertion about reconciliation in every forum and gathering even in a gathering in Uruzgan a few days ago, he claimed to have sent invitations to the leaders of the Taliban to participate in the peace assembly of elders which is to be held in Kabul.

In our opinion, such baseless and unsubstantiated claims portray Karzai loyalty and obligation for the task which has been placed on his shoulders by the Americans to ostensibly speak of peace and reconciliation (to deceive the man in the street) while the Americans will, de facto, continue to implement their policy of intransigence and warfare in the country.

Why they do not know that the Islamic Emirate, in the first place, elected to accept the ousting of their regime rather than preferring kowtowing to a foreign rule. They accepted death, injury, imprisonment, sufferings and bowed not to foreign pressure and subjugation, nor did they accept restrictions on the implementation of Islamic rules and principles.

Karzai and his colleagues should know that peace will not exist even for a single day in the presence of foreign troops in the country. Accepting the presence of foreign troops on our soil is against the noble traditions of the Afghans and it is contrary to their magnanimity and history.

Karzai speaks of reconciliation in a time that the Americans are not ready to put an end to the war in Afghanistan but as the time passes, they announce initiation of new battles. They are nurturing to turn Afghanistan into a hotbed of long-term colonialist conspiracies and ambitions.

The Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan believes that Karzai, the Americans, and other circles have been trying to drive a wedge among the ranks of the Taliban leadership by launching the phony process of reconciliation and by claims of having contacted Taliban leadership. During the past nine years, they have failed to permeate into the ranks of the Islamic Emirate, now with the help of Allah (SwT), it is impossible for the enemy to pervade into their ranks nor is it possible that any one will ever tend to accept the unrealistic, farcical and misleading reconciliation process.
