De realiteit in Kunduz

Graphic Video of Fatal Stoning Shows Taliban's Strength
The Taliban were able to impose their version of justice in part because northern Afghanistan has been neglected in the post-Taliban administration. Kunduz province, where the stoning took place, is one of the primary economic hubs in northern Afghanistan and was one of the safest areas in the country. Until 2008, there was little violence and little evidence of Taliban presence.

But today, across large areas of northern Afghanistan, inadequate and corrupt governance has combined with determined efforts by militants, and areas that were once safe are now under strong Taliban influence, and in some cases, under Taliban control.
Hier gaat onze politie, die dus nog niet eens de straatterroristjes in onze prachtwijken de baas kan, de Afghaanse politie opleiden.

Veel succes jongens en meisjes...
