There was a time when everybody had thought that the people of Afghanistan would be extremely relieved once the Americans troops left their place. But it seems that after President Barack Obama had made an announcement that the last troops would be soon withdrawn from Afghanistan, Afghanis are fretting the news for different reasons. Some of the people have admitted the fact that it has been after the arrival of the U.S. army things had changed for them. Afghanistan had always been suffering of war affects, but the last 11 years of U.S. rule had definitely given a much bigger space to their girls and women, gave the people security and helped in establishing a much balanced and functional government. Even many vendors who had been doing good business with the U.S. troops are now worried as according to them with the Americans gone their supply of Western products will definitely suffer as the demand for it among the locals is almost like nil.
So, Afghanis anger and worry definitely came as a big surprise for all. Kiran Kidwai – International Desk, NMTV
