Since the terroristic attack on the World Trade Center on september 11th, 2001, and the following invasion by the Allied forces in Afghanistan in order to fight the Taliban regime and Al-Quaida, the Western countries are involved in an ongoing conflict which seems to have no end.
When the authors started researching this topic they realized that the debate whether to pull out the troops, staying, or even reinforcing, is not so much about arguments, it's a battle of possible scenarios. Every side seems to have their own positive and negative visions of how things will happen in the future if certain steps are achieved. The resulting map The Afghan Conflict - A Map of Possible Scenarios is an attempt to summarize possible scenarios around the afghan conflict, according to a pullout or stay of the Allied troops. And is based on interviews with journalists, politicians and political foundations.
