Face-off: India should be a first-mover as it serves our interests – Times of India – Times of India

FOR: Bharat KarnadWars occur, popular unrest happens, foreign interventions fail, governments fall, regimes change. These are constants of the Third World scene. Hence, there were no real surprises in the recent developments in Afghanistan. Predictably, the US ran out of political will, the finger-pointing over ‘who lost Afghanistan’ has begun in Washington, Ashraf Ghani got out of harm’s way, and the Afghan National Army disappeared like the two trillion dollars America spent on the ‘never-ending war’. The only surprise was how with a minimum of fuss the Taliban reclaimed Kabul.
Now comes the tricky part of doing a hard count of gains and losses, and configuring future policies for all the countries with a stake in Afghanistan. This requires getting a fix on the prospective Taliban system, and the attitude of the five countries in play— India, Pakistan, China, Russia and the US.
