The war in Afghanistan will only end through a political settlement rather than a military victory. But that still remains a long way off. There is a need for preliminary talks with the opposition to seek a political solution to the Afghan war. The only way the opposition will come to the table is when they reach the conclusion that they cannot win militarily. The approach used in this book is to raise important questions about the Loya Jirga system used in Afghanistan. A concise and simple answer is then provided for each question to help the reader to understand this system, its current effect on Afghanistan and what a new future in Afghanistan could look like. Importantly, I also address questions about the kinds of strategies required for this vision to be realised. NATO for a number of years has been a strong supporter of the notion that the mission in Afghanistan cannot be won by military means or by combat means alone. There also needs to be a political strategy . I am strongly supporter of these reconciliation, reintegration and rapprochement efforts and we are seeing very early signs of some progress. My hope is that this book will help more people to have a shared vision with me for a peaceful, just and prosperous Afghanistan.
