    Not quite as simple as that.

    Afghanistan is a fiercely tribal country which is ill-equiped to deal with a centralised democratic style of government. It will take years, maybe decades to affect the change necessary to make a central government anything but an impotent organisation that is used primarily as an example of ' democratic success' by the West.

    The power lies with the tribal leaders and war lords and always will. The best that we can do is incentivise the rejection of the Taliban.
