An ‘Evolution in Thinking’ in Afghanistan

Ahmad Shuja, an Afghan blogger and political commentator based in US, shares his observations on how today's Afghanistan is different from what it used to be under Taliban rule:

Afghans and some foreign observers claim that Afghanistan is a vastly different country now than it was under the Taliban. Few of these observers can tangibly explain exactly what they mean by this change apart from pointing to the number of students in school, the proliferation of TV channels and the improved road networks… [I]t’s the evolution in thinking and expectations that has made Afghanistan such a different place now than it was a mere 10 years ago.

    Really, is Afghanistan that much different, maybe some scenario thinking post-NATO would put things into perspective.
