Afghanistan Update

Arthur Chrenkoff has again published another of his monthly "good news" updates, in cooperation with Opinion Journal. As usual, Chrenkoff has produced a thorough, link-filled, informative piece that is well worth reading:

Fit for a King

Chrenkoff aptly summarizes the situation in Afghanistan as follows:

No one is pretending that Afghanistan doesn't have a long way to go yet--it is, after all, starting almost from zero. But thanks to the Coalition military action that resulted in the overthrow of the Taliban regime almost three years ago, and with the continuing assistance from governments, organizations and individuals around the world, the Afghans are finally allowed to be optimists again. For a country that has suffered so much, it's a good start.

Be sure and give it a look.
