ABSTRACT

America’s military invasion of Afghanistan in 2001 has attracted a lot of scholarly debate. Its military operations in Afghanistan till date have plagued the nation into a cesspit of insecurity and misgovernance. This study has been designed to critically evaluate US military operations, governance and security in Afghanistan. To achieve the aim of the study, we raised two research questions. First, did the US government’s military strategies de-escalate the menace of insecurity in Afghanistan between 2001 and 2010? Second, has the US government’s military operations enhanced the stability of government in
Afghanistan? The study anchored analysis on power theory, relied heavily on qualitative data did expost facto research design to analyze the study. After a critical review of available data and literature, the study revealed as fallows: first, that the US government’s military strategies have not reduced the menace of
insecurity in Afghanistan second, US government’s military operations has not enhanced stability of governance in Afghanistan. The study is of the view that as long as America continues to have the erroneous believes that its relationship with Afghanistan is defined in terms of power, security and internal stability of governance will be a mirage in Afghanistan.
