US Plan for New Afghan Force Poses Threat to Civilians

The Pentagon and the Afghan government, in a move intended to increase the size of Afghan security forces without spending too much money, are poised to approve a new irregular combat force, with estimates it could number in excess of 20,000 fighters.

Both groups have dispatched delegations to India to examine the structure of the Indian Territorial Army, an irregular force created for deployment in certain areas where the regular military’s presence would be unpopular.

Afghans are unlikely to welcome this idea, however, because the US already tried this once with the establishment of the Afghan Local Police (ALP), a militia force made up of US-funded warlords given police powers and little to no oversight. Unsurprisingly, this quickly became a flurry of extortion rackets and other widespread abuse.

"Hey, but we're still there, 16 years on, and no matter what kinds of horrific abuses are visited upon the Afghani people by this unsupervised, irregular militia, WE'RE STILL HERE, WHICH MEANS WE ARE NOT LOSING IN AFGHANISTAN" - Official White House Souse.
