AFGHANISTAN

For Afghan people violence, death and destruction have become a part of life. Damaged buildings, bunkers and soldiers with sophisticated weapons have become the part of landscape. Since the invasion of Afghanistan by allied forces in 2001, the country’s destiny has in many ways not been its own. It is presided over by a government that is largely seen as a puppet to the US, and its main internal security operations, national defense capabilities and economic recovery rely almost entirely on a country that lies far away both geographically and culturally.
Taliban has so far been successful in carrying out attacks according to their wishes. With the death toll of foreign troops and civilians rising it needs to be seen whether the U.S. could pull out by 2014 or not.
