Turkey can paly a positive role in afghanistan

 Since the invasion of Afghanistan in 2001 by US led NATO forces Turkey is playing a key role in the war.The invasion was directed at driving out the taliban from power and to eliminate the safe heavens of Al qaida.The taliban has been formally ousted from Kabul by the northern alliance  just after the invasion,but still it is not formally defeated.Taliban is still strong in southern part of Afghanistan.The number of casualties for the coalition army is increasing year by year.

20034801058
2004521760

200931710896521
2010487101105693
Total14343464832263
So the result is that even after spending so much money and offering so much lives Taliban is still active in Afghanistan.They even have very good chance to return to the power in Kabul after NATO forces withdraws from Afghanistan
.UK prime minister has already declared that after 2011 his troops will from afghanistan.Most of the other countries will withdraw its troops in the next 1-2 years.So the NATO alliance have failed to beat the Taliban and al qaida militarily.
