A critical analysis of the current situation shows that although President Obama’s Afghan policy is somewhat effective, it is serious trouble and measures should be instituted to improve the existing policy. This is because the danger posed by terrorist activity to the United States and their collaborators in Afghanistan is real and without effectual action in the region, there will be continued stability (Rozen). Achieving the political and military goals is of great essence to the overall national security and calls for achievable and realistic objectives. First, the US seeks to disrupt terrorist organization in the region thereby hampering their capability to launch global terrorist attacks. Second, the US endorses institution of a capable and accountable government that is functional and serves the people with regards to their security and under minimal international support (Rozen). Third, the US aims to put in place dependent Afghan security forces that can carry out the counterinsurgency fight with minimal US support. The other important goal is to facilitate civilian control and a stable economy that provides opportunity for the citizens.
