ABSTRACT
The article focuses on long-term strategic efforts by the U.S. to stabilize Afghanistan. It states that North Atlantic Treaty Organization coalition troops have driven the majority of Taliban troops from the Zhari district of Kandahar province in 2010, resulting in improved relations with local tribal leaders and requests by local elders for infrastructure improvements such as paved roads and cold storage facilities. It comments on how U.S. officials are encouraging Afghans to grow pomegranates and wheat to replace the opium poppy crop. It talks about U.S. President Barack Obama's intent to reduce U.S. troop levels by 2012 and on Obama's relations with Afghan President Hamid Karzai. It mentions how strained relations between Pakistan and India have resulted in instability in the region.
