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.

"Chang-E" - Emmy the Great (new album out 10/9)

Emmy the Great drops her new album tomorrow on Bella Union - the fastest album she says she's ever created.  "April /月音" was completed after a trip to to her birth city Hong Kong in 2017. In early 2018, Emmy the Great made "April /月音" in a two-week period in Brooklyn - which was delayed for release until now because of her maternity leave. After recording this album, Emmy moved (for good) back to Hong Kong.  Since her original trip to Hong Kong, things have become quite tumultuous there. Said Emmy. "I’ll never know why the city called me back, but I know what it gave me. In return, I want to give it this album. That Mid-Autumn, nobody could have predicted what was to come, neither the atomization that began with the anti-Extradition Law protests in June 2019, nor the struggle for democracy that continues now, through the Covid-19 pandemic. To witness your birth city in its greatest moment of need is a powerful, humbling event, and I know I watched Hong Kong

Give JR a Break

Recently, I've been reading some sites that have criticized James Roday, the lead actor on the USA show PSYCH for an apparent weight gain. But you know what? Who gives a flying fizzle stick if James Roday is slightly larger than he was 4 years ago. Apparently, it wasn't enough to scare away his current girlfriend/ co-star Maggie Lawson. (Who is one hell of a Catch!) And NO they are not engaged. That seems to be nothing more than a rumor, but there is a very high chance of it happening in the near future. Anyway, as long as PSYCH continues to entertain I don't mind about James Roday's waist. He, and Dule Hill, and Corbin Bernson too, can eat all the fried broccoli they want. The last episode of PSYCH wasn't so smashing, but I don't blame it on dietary issues. QATFYG: Are you keeping up with Psych? And who is hotter, James Roday or Maggie Lawson? (Trick Question but idk why) PS: If you have heard any more news on Roday and Lawson becoming Roday-Lawso

movies you should see: hiroshima mon amour

Hiroshima, Mon Amour this movie has been on my mind a lot lately, due to the recent events in Japan. when I saw it about a year ago, it easily made an impression on me. easily. it was just so beautiful, in every way thinkable. it follows the story of a French actress and her Japanese architect lover, having a conversation together as they lie in bed. the majority of the film is told in flashbacks of their lives in WWII (the film was made in 1959, so there's a ten year gap there). he was directly affected by the dropping of the atom bomb in Hiroshima; she was ostracized due to her involvement with a German soldier. the reason I was propelled to see it was the song "Burning Hearts" by My Favorite- "I was an architect, she was an actress, I drew the Eiffel Tower upon her dress." (really good song too, by the way! RIP My Favorite). luckily, you can find the movie online. here's a portion of it: I HOPE YOU LIKE READING FILMS it's given credit (so I am
