ABSTRACT
The author focuses on the problem in Afghanistan related to the al-Qaeda and Taliban groups which she believes will not be resolved by the U.S. military nor the Afghan presidential elections. In the author's opinion, people need to consider other approaches in solving the problem. She notes that measures such as deploying counter-insurgency forces do not ensure the defeat of the two groups. She adds that effectiveness in the campaign against the two groups starts by regarding both as a non-threat and confronting them as not an equal on the battlefield.
