Karzai Spokesman Calls NATO War ‘Unwise, Aimless’
A spokesman for the Afghan presidency has described the NATO-led military mission in the country as “aimless and unwise.”
“The people of Afghanistan ask NATO to define the purpose and aim of the so-called war on terror, as they question why after a decade, this war in their country has failed to achieve its stated goals,” Aimal Faizi said in a statement on March 19.
Faizi’s remarks followed claims by Afghan President Hamid Karzai that the United States is colluding with the Taliban to keep Afghanistan unstable and give foreign forces an excuse to stay beyond 2014.
