Afghan elections will hold no surprises

FISH100Hamidity5

Afghanistan looks like it will be, yet again, under the rule of Hamid Karzai. No surprises and no room for change. Karzai was the ally of America during the removal of the Taliban, then became a “transitional” president, then was elected by the people and it looks like he will get back into office. He is formidable and his opponents don’t boast much of a resume either. This, coming after Iran’s shutting up of its people, makes there region stay in its stagnant state. Whatever is suitable for the West remains intact in Afghanistan, while the people still strive for a better standard of living. Everyone is expecting vote-counting flaws and corruption, especially in area where monitors can’t reach. Moreover, half of the people are not voting in this election and the Taliban has called a boycott of this “program of the crusaders.”
