China, Pakistan and their secret wars in Afghanistan

In 2014 then US President Obama announced that he plans to cut the 34000 strong American forces in Afghanistan by 70 percent. He further stated that by 2015 he intended to bring the strength to 5500 and by 2016 a complete withdrawal. The situation with ISIS didn’t allow him the luxury of complete withdrawal.

The Trump administration, in fact initially increased the number of troops to 14000 before giving a complete withdrawal plan by 2022. However, it is the Biden administration which fast-tracked the withdrawal to 2021. Today, the withdrawal of the American forces is a reality that is staring at the Afghan government.

It is a deja-vu kind of feeling about Afghanistan. Just 20 years back the al-Qaeda changed the way one looked at Afghanistan. The situation started to change after 9/11. However, with the US withdrawal, Afghanistan is about to plunge into darkness once again, and it worries two countries the most, China and Pakistan.
