General Karl Eikenberry, former Commander of U.S. Forces in Afghanistan, has said "Much of the enemy force is drawn from the ranks of unemployed men looking for wages to support their families." Jobs for Afghans is lobbying Congress to create alternatives to fighting for the Taliban. The Taliban is unpopular but it pays a wage in a country where unemployment is 40%.
