I should also highlight this post from Safrang, which is also a great summary of recent commentary on Afghanistan. I’ve just discovered this blog, and it’s a good place to get an Afghan perspective on current events.
“The circumstances, motives, methods, and the prevailing international relations atmosphere are all different with this effort and simply do not compare to the … Soviet invasion of yore -and make no mistakes about it: Afghans understand the differences.”
I am willing to agree, but what are the differences?
And then he says
“The same elections which, regrettably, are being overshadowed by shameful international skepticism and doubt. ”
My understanding is that the recent elections have been seen from Kandahar as a disaster for the Kabul Government – a disgrace, a dishonor.
I’d love to be wrong…
