Mr. William G. P. Monahan, Esq.
Counsel for the Committee on Armed Services
United States Senate
Washington, DC 20510
Dear Mr. Monahan:
Secretary Kerry’s installed Afghan government is a dead horse. It will rot and eventually have a very bad smell. No matter how much money the U.S. government puts into it. It will not function. It is a waste of U.S. taxpayer money. The U.S. government’s policy of divide and conquer through its covert war, with Afghans killing Afghans, is the wrong policy.
Yesterday the Afghan puppet Minister of Interior Noorolaq Olomi, Interim Minister of Defense Sher Mohammad Karimi, and Head of National Security Nabil Rahmatullah, told the Afghan puppet Parliament that of the 34 Afghan provinces more than 20 are controlled by the Afghan Resistance. Mohammad Karimi stated that the Afghan people are supporting the resistance and not the Ghani government.
In the late 1980s, the Soviet Union stated that it did not want to talk with the Afghan Mujaheddin. The Soviets stated that the Afghan Mujaheddin needed to talk with Najibullah’s Afghan puppet communist government. The majority of the Afghan provinces at that time were also controlled by the Afghan Mujaheddin, who were supported by the majority of the Afghan people. The world knows that the Soviet Union lost. They were forced to withdraw. The war caused the Soviet’s economic collapse which soon after led to the end of the Soviet Union and the collapse of the Warsaw Pact.
Right now, I see that the U.S. government is making the same mistake as the former Soviet Union. Instead of using the diplomacy/negotiation policy with the Afghan resistance ( direct talks between the resistance and the U.S. ). Kerry’s State Department is saying that the Afghan Resistance needs to talk with the Ghani government and not the U.S. It is common knowledge that the Afghan resistance does not want to talk with Ashraf Ghani. When Ghani’s uncle, who I have known for forty years, U.S. agent and chief interpreter, Dr. Qayyum Kochai, went to Qatar and spoke with the Afghan Resistance before the selection of Ashraf Ghani, he promised the resistance that Ghani would not sign the proposed bilateral security agreement. It is common knowledge that since Ghani did sign it, the Afghan Resistance will not talk with Ghani.
I believe the U.S. is heading down the same path as the former Soviet Union. I do not want this fate for the United States. The U.S. has trained and paid for the Afghan army and security forces which the majority are Northern Alliance. Now these U.S. trained forces are killing U.S. soldiers and switching sides to the popular and majority supported Afghan resistance. This switching sides has been repeated throughout Afghan history. Not only did it occur during the Soviet invasion and occupation but it reminds me of the 1842 Afghan and British First War, when 16, 000 British troops were killed when the British trained Afghan forces turned their guns against the British invaders to keep their face (honor). Right now, I see the same thing happening again. And I believe it will soon become even worse.
As I have informed you many times, myself and other educated Afghan Americans, who have not been war profiteers and who are respected by the majority of Afghans, can turn this situation around and bring true peace in Afghanistan in a way that can benefit both countries. In a way that the vast deposits of the Rare Earth Elements (REEs) can benefit the U.S. and the majority of the Afghan people/villagers and not just a few of the greedy war profiteers. To achieve this peace, we can be the bridge. I hope you use your influence and connections and allow us to come and talk with the Senate Armed Services Committee. The American people’s representatives need to hear both sides of what is happening and not just the opinion and perspective of the war profiteers and CIA agents.
I appreciate you listening to me. You know as long as I have breath I am going to express my opinion as to what is the right path because I have seen war. And I hate war. You know I am not a war profiteer. I just want peace and the best for my homeland, United States and for my motherland , Afghanistan.
