German international radio, in its year-ender, quotes, among others, AAN’s Thomas Ruttig:

“The ISAF mission hasn’t solved the main problem in Afghanistan,” said Thomas Ruttig, co-director of the “Afghan Analyst Network” based in Kabul and Berlin. “The war is not over yet, dismantling the Taliban came to nothing, insurgences have spread across the entire country, and since 2010 the level of violence in Afghanistan is higher than in all previous years.”
