WAFG in Kabul
Michael Ubaldi, March 10, 2003.
No, Afghanistan is neither a picnic nor stably modern; in all practicality, a pseudo-Islamic government may be the country's Taiwan Ticket* to liberalizing. In the meantime, both internet outlets and women's radio programming can speak out on the progress made and long journey ahead - and speak out to the world.
(* Taiwan Ticket: Allowing a capable, partly free nation to - under watchful protection - gradually evolve into a politically free and socially liberalized democracy, having been diagnosed as an unlikely candidate for direct social and governmental change. Precipitated by unusually difficult internal circumstances or danger of corruption from nearby, dictatorial third parties.)
