"The US military acknowledges that an insurgency in the south and east of the country has gathered pace - more than 700 people are said to have died in violence in Afghanistan since last August." (afgha) Amid repeated reports buried in U.S. media, Afghanistan is still hardly stable. Why do Americans have such faith that Iraq will work when they are casting a blind eye to the first post-9/11 project? In the last few days, Aljazeera (the Arab World's CNN) has mentioned heavy bombing in the southern region of Afghanistan, while it is quite difficult to find this in the mainstream. Perhaps the new method of the Bush Administration is to have so many wars going on that U.S. citizens can't keep up with what's going on, not to mention the time consuming dig one has to undertake to find out what is being leaked through the internet. According to another story in Afga, aid workers are having trouble helping because U.S. Soldiers are using the same vehicles and dress, eroding the crucial perception of neutrality, in turn the humanitarian aid workers are becoming targets. "Announcing the donation of 35 million euros ( million), a European Commission spokesman said: “We would have liked to do more but the security situation in the country clearly remains an important constraint.” Hunger, no health care, and unemployment plague most Afghans today, along with these military skirmishes. Mohammad Nasir says it far better than I can, "Mohammad Nasir considers himself lucky. He escaped to Pakistan but his uncle, his cousin and his cousin's son were killed. The 25-year-old returned to Bamiyan after U.S.-led forces toppled the Taliban and Karzai was installed as interim leader. 'When the Taliban were gone, that was a happy moment. Many people were happy and there was freedom. The Hazara people could return to Bamiyan. But that was more than two years ago. Now, many people are out of work,' said Nasir." Can we help the Iraqis too? Or have we already helped them enough?
