The problem with this sort of thing is that it is used by opponents of Western involvement in Afghanistan to say that things are no better than under the Taliban and that therefore it will not be a bad thing if they return to power. It is important to stress that things are better than under the Taliban even if if they are still pretty bad.

Unfortunately the Afghan authorities care little for the opinions of western orientated organisations, least of all those intent on lecturing them about their way of life. Indeed the progress made so far is likely to dissolve once the western forces have withdrawn. I feel deeply sorry for those with sense who wish for a better way of life in Afghanistan. The hope is forlorn. It is very sad.
