Where is the Afghan peace process headed?

"Was is a big week for foreign policy news the president announced last weekend that there was a secret plan for a summit with Taliban leaders at Camp David but he was cancelling the secret summit because of Taliban bomb attack in in Kabul eighteen years after we invaded Afghanistan the country remains riven by fighting between a us-backed government and a revived Taliban control swath of the country the trump administration has been trying to reach a deal with the Taliban would allow us to withdraw troops. The president surely saw this potential summit is a great way to look like a peacemaker but according to news reports the Taliban was unwilling to come to Camp David without first receiving concessions to discuss that and also developments related to Iran were joined by jared blank. He's a senior fellow at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace and and when he was at the State Department Jarrett worked on the Iran nuclear agreement before that he was the acting Special Representative for Afghanistan and Pakistan focusing on Afghan security elections and peace hi jared. Thank you for joining us thank you so this was also a big issue at Thursday's democratic debate. We've been in Afghanistan for so long is their way to withdraw our troops. While ensuring that Afghanistan does not become become a haven for international terrorist organizations like it was before nine eleven. I think that there is certainly a better policy to pursue in Afghanistan any policy that is going to have risks associated does he hid inside. Get a little hesitant about the word insure but the idea that the United States needs to have fifteen thousand or eight thousand or frankly one thousand troops in Afghanistan in order to pursue what are fairly limited counterterrorism objectives. I think just doesn't hold water so what what do we look for in these as negotiations with the Taliban which had been going on obviously not at Camp David for a substantial period before trump was trying to have this high profile meeting. What are we looking for? Is there a productive conversation station for us to have their that would allow us to do what you describe and reduce that footprint so I think there's absolutely a productive conversation and I think in fact productive conversation was underway with the US a special envoy investors all my house odd until president trump decided to make a drama out of it last weekend the conversation sort of breaks breaks into two levels. They're they're multiple wars being fought enough Ghanistan. One of them is approaching twenty years old. It's war between the United States and the Taliban the second is forty years. It's a civil war between Afghan factions. What investor House has managed to do have bandaged do with to lay out a framework to resolve the core security purity issues of the war between the United States and the Taliban so they get what they want which is a timeline for withdrawal? We get what we want which is a commitment that they ah will police the territory they control against internationally focused terrorist groups and also commitment to start negotiations with the government of Afghan the sand and others to try to end that long civil war which is important to us for a variety of reasons. That's not exactly the sequence that we'd worked on the Obama Administration. It's not the ideal sequence but the concessions that the United States made to get to that sequence are perfectly sensible and are reasonable way to approach a bringing this thing to an end rich. What do you make of that well? I just a very skeptical this I understand the exhaustion and frustration with the the Afghan war but I think the promising to you with Taliban as soon as you get zero those commitments they've made MIS importantly to police their territory against terrorists completely. Go out the window there. There's no the way they're going to comply with that. A why would they and sort of the the clever a case for this deal within the administration among hawks kind of want to tiptoe around trump more than did national security adviser John Bolton did was to say give give trump is his deal and they'll be this annex to the deal that has always conditions and the Taliban has has to meet that they won't meet and that'll allow us to do an offramp before we get to zero and end up at eighty six hundred but the very fact of the the deal affects the situation on the ground and if everyone really thinks we're going to zero. That's a that's a huge benefit to the Taliban. I think we just go to the the monopoly effective troop level. A lot of people think it's eighty six hundred. I'm not an expert in this area and stick there because I don't think there's a good way to WHO police Afghanistan against international terrorists without having some presence there and there are Ansari Benefits of having a presence there which is that you can so you have an eye into Pakistan and you can raid Pakistan as necessarily which is why we got bin Laden. We wouldn't have gotten bin Laden. If we weren't Afghantistan journey. What are you? What do you say to that? How do you enforce the terms of this agreement? If we have taken most all of our footprint out of the country well I think I would make two points. The first is to respond to what which is described is kind out of the clever case that will will lay out this troop drawdown time line but whether or not we ever completed depend on conditions on the ground and what I would say that is of course that's the case and of course the Taliban everyone else news that's the case the United States has announced repeated withdrawal timelines and we haven't followed them through so US leverage just pure military leverage before you get into other forms of leverage remains until the very end us gets decision points all along the way away in terms of the broader case of can you eventually imagine going zero again. I think the answer there is clearly. Yes and you do it in one of two ways either either you do it because there's been a peace settlement amongst Afghans which is obviously the most desirable outcome both for us for the Afghans which creates kind of a a government where power is distributed officially more-or-less as it is right now unofficially that kind of balanced government government in Afghanistan would be heavily dependent on international financing and we would have again leverage to make sure that they abide by their commitments including a counterterrorism commitments which which we shouldn't exaggerate how difficult how complicated these would actually be for them. The other alternative is that the deal doesn't take place in which case the Afghan civil war tragically continues but it can continue from the US's perspective with a dramatically lower commitment commitment so with funds for partners and probably some offshore military resources that would be needed now and again in counter-terrorism circumstances but the idea idea that it is that the US has sufficient security interests in Afghanistan to demand eighty five hundred or frankly five thousand one thousand troops odd infinitum not to mention forty five or fifty billion dollars a year. It just isn't borne out Christine. What did you make of the discussion about this at the debate on Thursday because you you heard candidate saying that they want to get troops out of Afghanistan but but lots of people want to get troops out of Afghanistan and the president wanted to President Obama wanted to and and so this seems like something that a lot of politicians have have expressed as a goal or made a commitment but it is so far lewd people to find a way to actually get it done yeah? I think that's that's right. I thought that actually was with Warren made a really good point in the debate on Thursday night when she said that you know we're not going to bomb our way out of terrorism. We're not GONNA bomb our way out of Afghanistan or any of these conflicts in the Middle East. We've tried that for literally decades at this point and perhaps we need to try something new and I think you know experts. and intelligence experts and military professionals can debate the best way to draw down troops to do so effectively to broker peace in some way up but I really think that the majority of Americans are tired. This has been an endless conflict that we didn't necessarily sign up for and I think that there is a strong appetite for beginning to leave it hopefully in a way that ensures the safety of our troops on the way out and that ensures or helps to ensure because that yes is not guaranteed a more stable country but people are ready to go. Can we talk a little bit about what happened with Iran this week. I'm frankly confused by what has happened with Iran so I mean first of all president trump withdrew from the Iran nuclear deal he imposed sanctions on Iran. They're describing their policy on Iran a maximum pressure policy to squeeze Iran financially and bring it to the table but now we're concerned that Iran is violating the agreement that we have already withdrawn from the Europeans are even more concerned about this and now president trump is flirting with a French proposal Rosal to extend a fifteen billion dollar credit line to Iran the purpose of which would be to ease some of the financial difficulties they face under our so-called maximum pressure sanctions and and then if we gave him the credit line the the trade would be that they would have to stay in compliance with the deal that we have withdrawn from Jarrett can can you explain to me what the possible purpose of this approach could be well to the extent that I think we understand discussions that underway between Paris Washington in Toronto and I don't want to exaggerate how much which we do I think the French proposal is an effort to provide a safe face saving way for president trump toback down without acknowledging that he's backing down now so in addition to pulling out of the JCP way the Iran nuclear deal a president trump withdrew all of the waivers for Iranian Lonnie and oil sales the sanctions waivers for oil sales. He took those waivers all the way down to zero where previous administrations had left the waivers that sort of you know higher level some level of income for the comedy I think the friendship concluded our others concluded that trump is unlikely to reverse that policy an issue oil sales waivers again but maybe there's a way to get kind of an equivalent amount of revenue to Iran in the fifteen billion dollar line of credit is kind of equivalent to a period of oil revenue for the for for for the Iranian National Oil Company and so the idea would be they get that back that revenue it's a little bit of a return to new. JCP We kept on behalf of the United States done in a kind of backwards way and as you say in extreme new they resume their compliance with the deal. I think actually what trump wants. It's more even than their resumption of compliance with the deal is a meeting with President Ronnie Right. I mean as we saw again with the let's get ludicrous situation with the Taliban

I mean winds right now. Eighty eighty five. I wouldn't be surprised this gets up to one hundred and fifty hundred and fifty five by the time it gets closer to the u._s. And dorian is as you're showing their over wide open warm water. Could it get even stronger because of that before making landfall absolutely in fact <hes> not a big surprise from yesterday but one of the changes was when you looked at the track we had it at a category to which should be later today that category three three and three at landfall not a surprise to see it. Go up to a category four and mainly the reason as it's got open open space. The smallest storm is gonna get larger but you go from temperatures in the water in the mid eighties to the upper eighties and that's at gulfstream so easily you can have a just an eruption of st right and and real quick any chance for good news here that dorian could weekend or make a sharp turn and go into the ocean the european model here in yellow.

"afghan war" Discussed on Here & Now

"And of course, we have these strong men around the country who have power of their own either through money or through their own militias. They are the enforcers in those areas. And I think that's the big challenge for the government and its legitimacy. We heard this week from Marine Lieutenant General MacKenzie. He's the man who was nominated to command all American forces in the Middle East. He called the Afghan war a stalemate, which we have heard before he was also asked a question about what he would say to Americans and Afghans who wonder why their loved ones are still being killed in this war. And here's what he said. Sure what we're doing is. We are protecting the homeland of the United States from being attacked. That's what you say. The Americans that's a clear visible viz. Visible tangible effort that that we can honor them for for the Afghans who have died. It's an attempt to come to a long peaceful political settlement in their country. And I think that too is an honorable go. I think Afghans and Americans who died in action Afghanistan, they've all been pursuing an honor roll and reasonable objective. Jason you're one of those soldiers in Afghanistan. What's your response to that? I don't think the question is what is the mission? Right. We all understand that the what the mission is about. We understand why we initially went there. The question is really about. How do we explain our continued failure? The question has to blow down to is is really the best. We can do. And have we examined all turn? It gives have we questioned some fundamentalists options. Or are. We just going to keep on with more and more of the same year after year. What you're what assumptions you can vote for one the assumption. Yeah, we started with this idea that we could create an Afghan state, our image and one of the fundamental conundrums exposed by the Trump administration suppose. That new strategy was so we're not going to nation building. Well, that's fine. But what we're doing is. We're still building a military in Afghanistan and a government structure that assumes a western style nation exists. And so we're sending this military out there that again only exists and can only be sustained with years and years and billions of dollars of American support in their losing or they're being held the stalemate against an enemy with vastly fewer resources. So we really have to get at this isn't a military problem to be solved, and unless we want to stay there forever. We really need to get back at how do we get to a point where Afghan national screw forces, and the Afghan government can assert some kind of legitimacy because they may be winning in toe to toe battles. But they're losing hearts and minds. Jennifer glass in Kabul. The Trump administration has been holding direct talks with the Taliban. The the Afghan government is holding talks with the Taliban is well what what are you hearing about those? Well, they'll may Helios odd who is the US special envoy for reconciliation. Here was just in Kabul yesterday, he flew to Moscow. He's on his third trip around the region in as many months, there's a lot of urgency on the American side to get things started. And so the Afghan government hasn't spoken to the Taliban. Yet, there was a high peace commission, a group that did sit with the Taliban in Moscow last month. These have so far been talks about talks. But there is certainly a sense of urgency on the part of the United States. You've seen Helios lot here in the region. Quite a lot talking. He's been in countries Qatar in the Emirates in Pakistan countries that host Taliban leaders trying to figure out who he can negotiate with the Afghan government has put together. A an initial negotiating team. The real question is what do the Taliban want are these? Talks will they actually really lead to anything. There was a big moment of hope in June. There was a three day ceasefire the first ceasefire in forty years of war. And there was a lot of enthusiasm and hope when Taliban fighters were here in Kabul, looking for ice cream stands, and you see them wandering around the streets of Kabul, and they hadn't been in this city in seventeen years..

"Eight think that a mercenary would buy his or her very nature except the rough with the smooth when it came to employed them and how they were treated well in Russia. This doesn't seem to be the case the country's private military companies or PM sees for short for some time. Now complained of that treatment, technically, they're legal, but their members sometimes receive medals from the Russian state now, these companies are asking the international criminal court prosecute Russia's PM see organizers for war crimes or to find out more. I'm joined now by the Russian analyst and regular monocle twenty four contributor, Stephen DL. Welcome back to the program. Stephen. One that's a suspected the existence of mercenaries. But I think a lot of people were quite surprised to find out the enormously organized nature of these PM sees tell us about it is quite extraordinary. They've actually been around for very long time in Russia's a very convenient way for the Russian state to be able to send well-trained troops effectively troops. I in they're in these groups, and they have military, but the label them as official truth, but to send them into war zones into places where Russia wants to spread his influence, and then if something goes wrong, the Russian state can stand back to nothing to do with us. Really those. There was an attacker. There's a group known as the Wagner group, which is sort of nickname. That's given to them and. Fifty them were killed in American air strike in Syria early this year, which is that's what kind of blew the lid off the whole story of Russian mercenaries. But it's it's been going on back into Soviet times. In fact, I remember in one thousand nine hundred nine in a club for veterans of the Afghan war meeting. A guy a Russian guy who complained bitterly that he had been given no recognition. No, medals. No pension for his work in the Vietnam war. I looked I said, but hang on Russia's and in the Vietnam war. He said, yes, we were. He said officially we weren't. But I was sent in to to do a job. And when I got injured no one wanted to know. So in fact, is there's quite a long history to this. But in recent times, this has been the case in Ukraine in Syria and Libya in the Central African Republic in particular on the other places. Many of these PM sees is private military companies are actually operating and wear. All they we don't know. Exactly. How many there are? The various places like Ukraine, Syria, Libya, and the Central African Republic has been of particular focus this year. It's a an area it's a troubled Republic, but it's a place that has got diamonds uranium a lot of very expensive national natural resources, which the Russians are very keen on having. So that they'd been active there. One of the things I think which gives us a hint, though, as to how big this station is is the fact that this appealed the to the international criminal court, which is this whole thing is bizarre therapy, lettering, officially exist, the Russian constitution, but they're appealing. We know they exist Russians know they exist. But this appeal has been supported by delegates from fifty two regions of Russia now Russia's divided into eighty five calls subjects some of very big. So wasn't quite small. But that means that's more than half, the the the areas of the country with her half these mercenaries. So it it suggests certainly thousands of of men tends to be tends to be men, and maybe a few women involved. But it tends to be men Turney thousands of them in probably hundreds of organizations who've been parachuted in or sending in one way or another these various spots in recent years, and there's no sign of. Stopping how do they actually approach the international criminal court in this context? Given the fact that they don't probably have the assist officials standing that might be necessary, namely, officially they don't actually exist.

"Afghan war when russia was fighting afghan staley's but you know he's not a spy doesn't work for the kgb which really interesting is the charles grassley a republican who chairs the judiciary committee you're in the senate was asking about this guy just a few months ago and he didn't know about this meeting with trump jr or any of those relations but basically this gentleman a came to light and charles grassley wanted to know is he acting as an unknown registered agent for russia because there were reports of their perhaps was the case so once again there is another row russian ties to donald trump jr that they simply forget to mention what does it mean we have all of these witnesses to this meeting several people now that we know where in this what does it mean to them to have witnessed these discussions and should they be lawyering up i don't know the answer that question but it'd be would would it's very odd is that the president brushes aside the other day saying they didn't even mentioned the emails said to donald trump jr the russia government has some dirt on hillary clinton we'd like to share with you can we have a meeting and he said i love it nancy pelosi calling it a campaign violation there are campaign laws that say you cannot have a a foreign government interfere in the election in this country and i'm not sure this was ever actually been brought to trial or prosecuted but in this case it might be because we have a special prosecutor robert muller former fbi director who's looking to all these things were told now that he's looking into these emails on these meetings and donald trump junior who before this had almost no connection to the the russian scandal and now seems to be deep into it what's the relevance though of having this man at this beating is it because of who he is epic is it because we didn't hear his name there before what's it mean in the big picture we don't know because we don't know exactly what was said there were you're just hearing donald trump jr saying look you know they said they had some stuff to turn out to be anything and every was not interested.
