Description

The people of Afghanistan have experienced nearly four decades of war and turmoil, and there does not seem to be an end to the mismanagement of political resources and strategies by local, domestic, and international players. From the author's personal observations, while there have been many positive changes over the past ten years, "mismanagement" is perhaps the appropriate word to describe the status of politics in Afghanistan. Uncertainty, distress, and chaos are other words that perfectly describe the status of people's emotions and feelings in the country. So there is little to no peace in the country at this time and very little stability is expected as the international community prepares to leave and transition full governance to the local people. For those who are lucky to have a professional job, most of them seem to be living day-to-day not knowing whether they will come home alive in the evening.
