    The US and its allies are looking for scapegoats. They will target India for their failure to contain the Pakistani Army's support to the Taliban. Self-styled historians like William Dalrymple are willing accomplices in the actBruce Riedel, arguably one of the best informed and most experienced American analysts on the AfPak region, recently wrote an interesting analysis titled, ‘Battle for the Soul of Pakistan’. Mr Riedel noted: “Pakistan also remains a state sponsor of terror. Three of the five most-wanted on America’s counter-terrorism list live in Pakistan. The mastermind of the Mumbai massacre and head of the Lashkar-e-Taiba, Hafeez Saeed, makes no effort to hide.
    He is feted by the army and the political elite, and calls for the destruction of India frequently and Jihad against America and Israel”. Mr Riedel adds: “The Head of the Afghan Taliban Mullah Omar shuttles between ISI safe houses in Quetta and Karachi. The Amir of Al Qaeda Ayman Zawahiri is probably hiding in a villa not much different from the one his predecessor (Osama bin Laden) was living in, with his wives and children, in Abbotabad until May 2011.”
    The Americans and their Nato allies are evidently looking for scapegoats in case their ‘exit strategy’ fails, as it did in Vietnam. India now appears to be the new scapegoat in the event of such failure, as the US and its Nato allies seem to be bent on blaming India for their failures to deal with the Pakistani Army’s support for the Taliban, which could lead to an ignominious exit for them from Afghanistan. In this effort, British writers like the self-styled historian, William Dalrymple, seem to have become willing and enthusiastic accomplices. In a recent paper published by the Washington-based Brookings Institution, Mr Dalrymple avers: “While most observers in the West view the Afghanistan conflict as a battle between the US and Nato on the one hand and the Taliban and Al Qaeda on the other, in reality the hostility between India and Pakistan lies at the heart of the conflict in Afghanistan”.

    Yes India is responsible for failure of US forces in Afganistan. First the congi sarkar failed to support Russians in 1987 to attack Pakistan under US pressure and than they refused to support Americans to attack from east while US wanted to attack from west with ANA to dismember Pakistan in 2011. We also failed in 1984 to support Israeli strike on Pak nuke plants. All our problems are a direct result of Khangrass inaction.

    It looks like the White House wants to wash its hands clean and surrender to the Taliban.

    Unfortunately, even I feel so. However, given the depths to which Khangress has sunk in last 10 years...BJP appears an angel.

    Agreed. and there is nothing wrong with what Dalrymple has said in the article. Dalrymple is a good writer And not anti Indian.

    US and India will not fall out over Afghanistan as both are strategically tied at the hip over China, at least for the foreseeable future.
