ABSTRACT
The article discusses the absence of a peace process to end the Afghan War, which is highlighted by an attack where gunmen in Pakistan set ablaze five trucks carrying North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) equipment out of Afghanistan. The International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) of NATO and the U.S. will exit Afghanistan in 2014 without securing the country's southern provinces, suppressing opium cultivation, and persuading the Taliban to negotiate with President Hamid Karzai.
