ABSTRACT
This article discusses the status of the war in Afghanistan and the chances of U.S. success. Although the author fully supports the reasons behind the war and he believes that it has been necessary for preventing the further organization of the Taliban and its terrorist activities, he also believes that the people of Afghanistan and the government in Kabul are unable to accomplish a restructuring of the country that would result in a democratic society. The article notes that Afghanistan's government is weak and corrupt and the political culture of the country is determined by tribal, ethnic, religious, cultural and geographical factors.
