Re: Afghanistan: its present and future

The Independent has an interesting article about a new UN report. By far the largest killer of Afghans is the Taliban. Far from defending the ordinary people from foreign aggressors they are slaughtering them.

My view is that we gave the people help when the Taliban government was overthrown and then we looked the other way. We are morally obliged to make good the mistakes we mad or a new Taliban even viler than the old will take control of the country. (If a few of the squillions wasted in Iraq had gone to development in Afghanistan we wouldn't be in this mess now).
