NRao, that is a surprisingly naive thing to say. After all this time on the forum you surely understand that succesful counter-insurgencies, like any total war effort depend heavily on the integration of non-military elements - building infrastructure in the countryside, economic development, putting out a message, extending govt. services, etc.
Any state that aids the Afghan government in these things is going to be treated as an enemy of the Taliban. In particular the GoI may not have combat forces engaged in Afghanistan, but it long ago established itself as an enemy of the Taliban by aiding the Northern Alliance even before it came to power on the backs of American bombs.
Sorry to say this, but your arguments are very, very stunted. But then I cannot expect much more because your knowledge is limited.
IF you cannot understand that there was/is a Indo-Pakistan dynamics in the region, that predates both the arrival of US/NATO in Afghanistan AND also predates the creation of Taliban, I do not think we can have a meaningful discussion. You have to first realise that this Indo-Pakistan dynamics really has no connection/s to the dynamics of the reason/s why the US/NATO decided to come to Afghanistan. (The attacks on Indian embassy will continue as long as India has an Embassy there, even if ALL Indian aid workers leave the country. That is not necessarily true of US/NATO Embassies.)
In short, attacks on Indian assets has nothing to do with the Taliban. In fact it has only to do with Pakistan.
It is not what you are saying that is wrong, it is what your are not saying or understanding that is not right.
Why not look at Gates comments on the 28th of June? Or Gates and CENTCOM commanders public testimonies to Congress. There is never any acknowledgement of the role that the PA and ISI play in actively supporting the Taliban insurgency that are responsible for NATO and other deaths in Afghanistan. Any public suggestion of collusion betwen the two is always dismissed.

U.S. Blames Pakistan as Afghanistan Incursions Rise
By Yochi J. Dreazen
Word Count: 621
KABUL, Afghanistan -- U.S. officials have begun blaming Pakistan for Afghanistan's increasing violence, an escalation in rhetoric that suggests American patience with Pakistan's new government is rapidly running out.
Senior American military officials say that the number of militants crossing into Afghanistan from Pakistan has increased sharply in recent weeks because of Pakistan's failure to crack down on the Islamic militants operating freely in its lawless tribal areas.
"I link the increased incidents of violence in Afghanistan in part to those sanctuaries across the border and the ability to send militant groups and fighters into Afghanistan," said Gen. David McKiernan, ...
WARNING: This is NOT a testimony in front of the US Congress!!!!
(However, as usual, it complains of attacks ONLY against US/NATO forces. And, why not?)
India is a secondary factor.
Oh yeah? Since when? Considering the fact that India was there since the 90s, AND the US/NATO arrived there in the early 2000, who is late and secondary?
J, this statement is laughable.
