Default Isis in Afghanistan is a disaster waiting to happen

Its black flag has replaced the white ones of the Talibs in a swathe of areas including in Helmand.

When tales began to emerge in January that Mullah Abdul Rauf has obtained the Isis franchise in Afghanistan and was inviting his comrades in the Taliban to join him there was general surprise. He had the most glittering of CVs for movement, severely injured fighting the Russians and incarcerated by the Americans at Guantanamo Bay before returning to triumphs in the jihad.

Rauf began to gather followers rapidly, but a month later he was dead from a US drone strike. Isis, however, has been establishing itself since last Autumn and keeps marching on, seizing areas from the country’s traditional insurgents as well as the government and, significantly, becoming a major player in the opium trade, the country’s most lucrative asset.

The black flag of Isis has replaced the white ones of the Talibs in a swathe of areas including in Helmand where UK forces spent eight years at a cost of more than 450 lives trying to defeat Mullah Omar’s fighters. Villages around Sangin, a town many of us remember as a symbol of the ferocity of Taliban resistance, with constant attacks, now has Isis presence. “Mullah Rauf started this, but these people [Isis] are now here, they openly challenge the Taliban”, reported Saifullah Sanginwal, a local tribal leader we had met at the time. “About 20 people have been killed, Yes, this is happening in Sangin.”

The declaration last week of adherence to Isis by Boko Haram, the Islamist group capturing territory and kidnapping girls in Nigeria, led to widespread publicity. There is alarm as Isis establish themselves in Libya, just across the Mediterranean, beheading Christian hostages. But the focus, understandably, has been very much on the war in Syria and Iraq and the latest barbarity being committed there by Isis, it’s spreading tentacles in Afghanistan has, internationally, gone largely unrecorded.

The spread of Isis into south Asia has major ramifications. The Afghan president, Ashraf Ghani, has reversed the policy of his predecessor, Hamid Karzai, with a policy of rapprochement towards Pakistan in the hope that elements of the Pakistani military and the secret police, ISI, would bring the Taliban leadership, which they control, to the negotiating table.

Default

Truth is spreading forces only leaves them open to attack.
Tribal mentality is to paranoid to commit fully.
The usual hit and run tactics will be shared as a PR campaign only.
Let us hope they are that foolish to commit the bulk of their troops, pray they're that stupid.
