The Afghan situation is made all the more dramatic by the virtual absence of a political counterpart with whom to conduct serious, meaningful   negotiations, and the efforts to form responsible and reliable Afghan security forces have been having uneven success, especially considering that they have been going on for   several years. Difficult as it is to look into the future, it seems legitimate to feel that the ultimate situation which the West will leave in Afghanistan will be in many aspects identical to   the one left by the Soviet forces in 1989, with the added weight of even greater destruction and resentment.
