Why, after 14 years of American military efforts, is Afghanistan still so fragile?All three of these cities are in Pakistan.Pakistan has mastered the art of pretending to help the United States while actually supporting its most deadly foes.Pakistani officials, from former President Pervez Musharraf down, categorically denied that bin Laden or Mullah Omar were living in Pakistan – despite the fact that former Afghan President Hamid Karzai repeatedly pointed this out publicly.Pakistan was the base for the American-supported mujahedeen as they battled the Soviet Union in the 1980s. After the Soviet Union retreated from Afghanistan in 1989, the United States withdrew almost as quickly, and Pakistan entered that strategic void. As the United States draws down its forces, Pakistan again seeks to expand its influence through its long-standing proxy.Why does Pakistan support the Taliban? To do this would be good for Afghanistan and stability in that part of the world, but it would also be good for Pakistan.Pakistan is a time bomb waiting to explode.
