This week there was a major conference on the future of Afghanistan. Afghan President Hamid Karzai reaffirmed his commitment for the Afghan police and army to take over security by 2014. But with a long list of problems that are destabilizing the country, could this security hand-over be too soon?

Whether or not Afghanistan is ready to take control by 2014, the US, NATO and its allies plan to withdraw over the next few years. Despite the time table for pulling out, they've all reiterated commitments to helping the country beyond that date.

The Taliban has since issued a statement. It said the takeover of Afghan forces shows the US and its allies plan to abandon the country - and blame the Afghan government for any failures.
