The Americans and the Kabul Puppet Administration’s rulers are of the opinion that they can deceive the Afghan people for the next one or two years under the name of composition and structure of the Peace High Council, with a sole purpose to boost the American occupation and weaken the resistance. In retrospect, the Americans established an entity under the name of Peace Strengthening Council some eight years ago to work in parallel with the constant and unprecedented brutality and mass murders being carried out by the invaders. The aim was to show that the Jihad against the foreign occupation was a mere rebellion or it had originated from the interference of the neighbors or was the result of personal grievances and resentments of the militants. Thus, they wanted to demonstrate that the foreign invasion of Afghanistan was a legitimate act and only the Taliban and other oppositions were behind the violence in Afghanistan. By doing so, they tried to prove that it is the Taliban that have been flaring up the flames of war.

But when the Americans reached the conclusion that the Peace Strengthening Council had failed to persuade any group of the armed Mujahideen to lay down arms and surrender, they have now resorted to another ploy under the name of Peace High Council to deceive the Afghan people. Hence, they want to show that they have a reconciliation agenda besides their war-mongering policy and continuous brutality. But in fact, they are intending to beef up the occupation through both the conduits. However, the Afghans do not give an iota of importance to all these commissions and jirgas because they know that only those figures have been selected in the so-called reconciliation councils who are already implicated in betrayal to the country and Islamic values and provocation of frictions among people during the past nine years. On the other hand, this reality is not hidden from the eyes of the people that the Americans use these figureheads only as pawns, and are not ready to give them any authority. Rather they are trying to discredit them and slur their reputation.

The reconciliation propaganda launched by the Americans and the Kabul Puppet Administration is meaningless in the light of this hard fact that how can reconciliation be materialized in condition of presence of more than one hundred thousand foreign troops, being armed with [a] motley [array] of weapons, aircrafts, missiles, tanks and other warfare hardware.

The rationale for reconciliation can be only convincing when, at least, the invading Americans put signature on a document before the people of Afghanistan and the world, binding them legally to withdraw their forces from Afghanistan in a given time-frame.

This is necessary because the Kabul mercenary government has signed various agreements with the Americans which allow them to keep their troops stationed in Afghanistan for tens of years.
