Background of proxy wars worldwide: What does Afghanistan need in current crisis?

Part II

In the first part of the article, we discussed the emergence of nation-states, the concept of nationalism, and its positive and negative consequences. We also focused on the establishment of the United Nations and the powerful and competent countries within it. In this part, we will discuss the economic issues of nationstates. These economic unions face many challenges, and they may not soon become a serious threat to America. The U.S. remains the world’s largest military and economic power, with control over the world economy, namely the dollar and the banking system. Due to the Cold War, America has investments in many European countries and a military presence there, so European countries cannot become a significant obstacle for the U.S. BRICS countries also have their particular problems; for example, India and China cannot come together. India, Saudi Arabia, Israel, and the United Arab Emirates are forming a new alliance, but BRICS countries do not want this alliance to strengthen. Against the formation of alliances and global economic and military powers, the U.S. does not remain silent and tries to prevent these alliances from achieving their goals, as evidenced by the conflicts in Ukraine and the Middle East. Given the historical background, wars between families, tribes, and countries often arise from fear, interests, and maintaining honor or prestige. In any case, the main goal of war is to safeguard interests. Global powers always seek to use proxy groups and small countries for proxy wars to avoid direct engagement in conflicts, as wars between global powers in the present time, with more advanced and mass destruction weapons, can be devastating. They do not want to use these weapons against each other. However, they keep these weapons as a threat and show each other that attacking them is not wise because they also possess advanced weapons and can retaliate against their targets, like Iran’s attack on the Zionist regime. Iran’s goal was not to escalate the conflict, but it showed the Zionist regime that if attacked again, it possessed advanced weapons and could use them against the Jewish state. To conclude, the analysis of the futility of wars is not based on who is right and who is wrong, but rather, each side uses all its economic, military, political, and human resources to safeguard its interests. Europeans, who shared common racial and religious values, witnessed more wars there than anywhere else in the world, and both World Wars began in Europe. Iran and Iraq were two Islamic countries that shared common religious, and cultural values, yet they fought for years for their interests. However, religion, faith, race, language, ethnicity, and other cultural values are used as tools to garner support among their people or other nations. Wise nations are those that do not involve their countries in proxy wars for other purposes. Afghanistan, which has been the biggest victim of proxy wars, especially in the past five decades, should not forget world history and its history, especially the wars of the past five decades. Countries and regions that become victims of proxy wars are those with internal conflicts and prioritize regional, ethnic, linguistic, religious, and personal interests over national interests. If Afghans don’t learn from history, they will not be in a position and power to change global political policies and directions. Afghans must not get involved in proxy wars that threaten the dignity and reputation of both Afghanistan and the world. This can only be achieved when all parties genuinely seek stability in Afghanistan and cooperate to establish a legal and central system. Javed
