If any political side or group resort to foreign support when its interests are threatened, the fear of the country turning into a battleground for proxy wars will come true. In that case, the regional and other global powers will have their proxy forces in Afghanistan to safeguard their interests, and use the forces as they wish. The government will be helpless to contain the situation, and the country will become a second Syria.
Political struggle in the light of the country’s applicable laws is the right of every political group and party; however, seeking foreign assistance to pursue partisan goals is on no account justifiable, and cannot help rectify the situation. It is the foreign interference that is primarily to be blamed for the country’s current woes. If any political movement or party turns to that failed experience, it will not have any meaning other than rubbing salt on the wounds of the bereaved Afghan nation.
Taking into account the country’s delicate situation, the political parties or their key members should eschew embracing a stance that can lead to more problems. The government, as a responsible side, should not allow the repeat of the bitter experience of receiving foreign assistance for political ends, and turning the country into a battleground for an endless proxy war.
