Afghanistan: Easy to Understand. Not!

An up close a personal view of how personal politics are in Afghanistan.

Notes from a tribal gathering

Commander Daoud
This man, Commander Daoud, is not a particularly nice man.
He was one of the people in this province responsible for widespread vote rigging in his area of influence in Zazi Aryoub district.
I tried to explain the UN’s role in the election
but somehow it all got lost somewhere between him brandishing his walking stick at me and then storming off. Well, limping off really.
