Title: Canada in Afghanistan : is it working ?
Authors: Boivin, Marc-André
Issue Date: 2007-03
Publisher: Centre d'études et de recherches internationales
Series/Report no.: Rapports et notes de recherche du CERIUM
Abstract: The report details how the Taliban are deeply entrenched in Afghanistan and are organizing themselves for a new offensive, in part because of assistance flowing in from Pakistan. There are also signs al-Qa'ida is attempting to reconstitute itself in Pakistan. “Meeting NATO objectives requires some form of political resolution within Afghanistan,” says Smith. “It also requires Pakistan playing a more positive role by facilitating negotiations with those Talibs not determined to fight to the bitter end.” Smith suggests that the current poppy eradication campaign isn't working and that the crop should be sold through a marketing board which would be processed for medicinal purposes.
