The People of Afghanistan: www.Afghan-web.com


In the wake and dawn of September 12th, the world seems rather similar compared to yesterday. However, across the world in Afghanistan, the daily life is tattered, beaten up, beaten down, turmoil-filled, and under pressures on both sides of the lines.

In 2011 we still hear the echoes of the battle cry from 2001.

The United States has soldiers abroad risking their lives every day because of what happened on September 11th.

But where is this all going for the people of Afghanistan?
The people in the slums of Kabul or in smaller towns that had no part in the mechanics of the Taliban government?

I first visited Afghan-Web.com in 2001, and like many, I had no real understanding of Afghanistan. If you’ll have a question regarding the life in Afghanistan, visit this website.

They cover everything from not only
Military and Government Issues to Culture and Cooking Recipes,
As well as History, Plant Life, even the native Dog Breeds of Afghanistan.
Moreover, it is a portal into many other online zones of the Afghan World.

A comment spreading across the internet once read “Why study Afghanistan? If someone bullies you, you don’t have to know their favorite movie.”

A more realistic statement is, “If someone bullies you, you don’t have to hate their entire family.”

This is website of Peace; however, it is not a straight-up “all pros and no cons” for Afghanistan, such as the notorious Afghan struggles with Women’s Rights.

Every 30 minutes, an Afghan woman dies during childbirth
• 87 percent of Afghan women are illiterate
• 30 percent of girls have access to education in Afghanistan
• 1 in every 3 Afghan women experience physical, psychological or sexual violence
• 44 years is the average life expectancy rate for women in Afghanistan
• 70 to 80 percent of women face forced marriages in Afghanistan

Will Afghanistan ever be anything more than what it is now?

  2. I think we have a responsibility to leave it in a better state than it was in when we went in, and the way to do that might be to build them some schools and hospitals and irrigation, and opportunities to grow things other than cheap-and-easy-to-grow but valuable opium poppies. Then, we leave them to do whatever they want with these opportunities. It's a shitty situation, and I think that might be the way to make the best of it.

"Anchors" - AM Higgins

Here's a nice breezy, almost sensual song from AM Higgins (the solo project of musician Annie Toth) to start your Tuesday off right.  Her debut album "Hymning" will be out November 5th on Victorialand Records. The album was mixed by Casey Foubert, a frequent collaborator of Sufjan Stevens. The album "captures the first years of moving from an American city to rural France." Sounds like "Hymning" will be a welcome escape from the world we live in right now, especially considering that Annie Toth counts poets Mary Oliver and Thomas Merton as influences.

"Mon Soleil" - Ashley Park

If there's anything people take away from my piss-poor legacy, I hope it's what a huge, unabashed fan of "Emily in Paris" I am and will continue to be. People love "90 Day Fiancee," "The Bachelor," and other garbage - allow me "Emily," which is at least harmless, kind of goofy fluff (which does, unfortunately, lean into some stereotypes, as the country of Ukraine knows ). I have already watched Season 2 twice. And honestly my favorite part of this show (despite my crush on Camille Razart and Lily Collins channeling Audrey Hepburn hardcore ) is Ashley Park. This woman has superstar written all over her. She's a bona fide Broadway star, and "Emily in Paris" has served as her pivot into the zeitgeist.  "Emily in Paris" is also showcasing her vocal prowess front and center this season, with her covering BTS, "All By Myself," "Sympathtique," and Marilyn Monroe. But the real standout performance is th

"Happy New Year"- Let's Eat Grandma

There's no way to start the New Year like some extremely upbeat music about the New Year! That's where this new synthpop-heavy single from the British duo Let's Eat Grandma comes into play. It's a delightful song, and it helps increase any excitement about their third album, "Two Ribbons," which will be out this April. I personally am looking forward to hearing more from Let's Eat Grandma, who deserve way more attention than they currently get. Hopefully, 2022 will be a big year for them. Here's one of their older tracks I quite like:
