Afghanistan is becoming a model of reconstruction and future democracy. Haven't heard? Perhaps you should stop listening to the nightly news and read more Blogs. Elections are coming and high percentages of those polled in Afghanistan feel safer and are hopeful for the future.
Money quote:
"In all, some 3.5 million Afghans have gone home since the UNHCR-organized return movements started in 2002, including more than two million from Pakistan, 900,000 from Iran and more than 440,000 displaced persons, while tens of thousands of other exiles have gone back on their own." This is surely the greatest humanitarian good news story of the last few decades.
