The War is not Over Yet

Dear Editor!

May be some times the world forgets about war-torn Afghanistan. Still here is a huge need for the world to understand the fight on terror in Afghanistan; many people think it is all over after the death of Bin Laden. But, the war in Afghanistan still persists to continue with no end, it's pretty known, there is still an strong legacy exists after his death.

May be some popular cities in Afghanistan seem and sound cool and calm without any clashes, but we also need to put a glance on some other provinces of the country, like rural areas where the Taliban still seems to be strong. May be the rural residents are still compail to support the Taliban in order, the Taliban not to hurt them. So in order to maintain peace in Afghanistan, we need the support of the United States and its lead the coalition forces. Obviously, the war is not ended with the death of Osama yet, their withdrawal from Afghanistan means the return of the same leader like Osama; we would witness the same condition as we did during brutal era from 1995 to 2001.

Typically, today if the United States and Britain give devotion in Afghanistan that's for our betterment, they have lost 520 soldiers only in the last few years. Therefore, the additional troops that the United States, Britain, and others to deploy in the country is vital if progress is to be made, and thus, this would be the only decision to bring an swift end to the conflicts.

Best Regard
