Any Questions?
The US president, Barack Obama, has announced the possibility of withdrawing all US troops from Afghanistan, if a security agreement cannot be signed by Afghanistan president Hamid Karzai. This possibility is known as the “Zero Option”.
Do you think president Barack Obama has made the right decision? If so why?
What do you think will happen in Afghanistan if the U.S decides to leave?

How do you think the Taliban might react if the US decides to leave?
As of February 26, 2014, President Obama announced that he might have to withdraw US troops from Afghanistan unless there is a peaceful settlement.
- 66% of Americans agree with the decision.
I believe that removing troops from Afghanistan is not a wise decision. I am concerned that the Afghanistan government are not powerful enough for the Taliban.

This top news article that I have chosen is brought to you by “Al Jazeera”. The last update of this on-going issue was reported on Tuesday, Feb. 26, 2014. I have also gathered information from “CNN” and the magazine “The Week”.

The Taliban is an Islamic fundamentalist political movement in Afghanistan and Pakistan.Part of their practice believes women have almost no rights. This makes it extremely hard for girls to get a proper education in Afghanistan. Malala Yousafzai, a young girl who stood up for education was shot in the head by the Taliban.
