Opinion: Uprising of the Renegades

An Afghan soldier shot four french allied soldiers, killing them instantly. The french President, Nicolas Sarkozy, sent the Minister of Defense and the Chief of Staff to Afghanistan and threatened the Afghan authorities with an immediately retreat. This assassinations increased the number of deaths caused by Afghan renegades inside the OTAN.

This situation is unbearable…

In my point of view, there’s two different main causes for this murders. In one hand, there might be al-Qaeda’s militants inside the Afghan military forces. Moreover, the Western military doctrine might be incompatible with the local culture, associated to an unbounded patriotism caused by ten years of occupation and a weak governance.
