US mulling Chaosistan plan for Afghanistan


Gen. Stanley McChrystal, the US commander in Afghanistan, has said that he has received a recommendation advocating a plan called Chaosistan for the war-tron Central Asian nation. He made the remarks in a speech in London earlier this month in which he commented on a paper on the Chaosistan plan. McChrystal said the plan stated that Afghanistan should be allowed to become a "Somalia-like haven of chaos that we simply manage from outside." But he did not reveal the paper's origins. Later, two US intelligence officials told Newsweek that the reference almost certainly comes from a secret CIA analysis entitled "Chaosistan". The document, prepared by a "red team" of CIA analysts, picks apart conventional analyses of the war inside Afghanistan, according to the officials, who spoke on condition of anonymity. Despite the presence of over 100,000 foreign troops in the country, the escalated militancy has made the current year the deadliest for foreign forces, as well as Afghan civilians. Eight years after the US-led invasion of the Afghanistan, the militants have extended their influence from their southern power base to the relatively peaceful north and west of the country.
