Abstract

Currently, the insurgency as a fact is most present in the country that seems to live in an endless conflict - Afghanistan. Insurgent groups are very active in this area of the world, and nothing seems to stop them. As a natural reaction to this phenomenon, the Afghan authorities are responding with actions that fall more or less in the counterinsurgency category. At the level of the international military coalition that acts in support of the Afghan security forces, were mentioned the main causes that contribute to the perpetuation of this conflict. From the latest analysis, Western specialists say the main cause of the failure of counterinsurgency action is the support given to insurgent groups by Afghanistan”s neighbors by providing those safe areas within their territory where members of the organizations are sheltering the actions taken by the Afghan security forces.
