ABSTRACT
The article presents an analysis of socio-political realities in Afghanistan as of 2011. It emphasizes the need for a better understanding of Afghan culture by the U.S. military, in order to successfully conclude the Afghan War. An argument is presented that U.S. counterinsurgency tactics against the Taliban have been less than optimal, due to faulty assessments of the root causes of jihad, and of the country's traditional power dynamics.
