The people of Afghanistan have suffered much but there appear few prospects of their overcoming these problems.
The people of Afghanistan have suffered decades of turmoil. Greedy predatory powers have played havoc with their lives. Others may have given up long ago; not the Afghans. They are a brave and courageous people and are prepared to pay the price for freedom and dignity. They need leaders who can reflect these aspirations. Unfortunately, there are many politicians chasing their narrow agendas disregarding the hopes of the long-suffering people. They deserve better.
