90% Increase in Violence

As sad as it is to report, it appears that things in Afghanistan are not getting any better, but in fact even worse. Violence is up nearly 90 percent in the last year as the amount of roadside bombing, murders and shootings are beginning to skyrocket. Obama continues to speak of change and that we have the potential to create a new beginning in Afghanistan, but the reality is that things are getting worse and at a faster rate. The biggest complaint coming from the Afghan people is directed at their own government. Many are unhappy with the direction the country is going in and take out their frustration in an uproar of protests. Many innocent people are getting killed and at a very rapid rate. The Taliban have retuned to certain parts of Afghanistan as well and are setting up trouble at any possible location where allied forces are based. The U.S. can only do so much to help rebuild this country; eventually it will get to the point that these people need to come together and resolve their political differences. The violence must stop and the Taliban need to be eradicated from the country in order to so.
