When I claim the Afghan peace deal between the US & Taliban is an electoral charade on Trump’s part, it is because the provisions of the so-called peace agreement, which excluded the corrupt Afghan government from deliberations, are conditional & impossible to accomplish, especially the provision requiring a power-sharing arrangement between the Taliban & Afghan government. The US & its allies have major plans for the region & will not withdraw their forces before the colonization & capitulation of Afghanistan & other countries is realized. Unless international political pressure forces their withdrawal.
