  •  Aid Workers..the most important link for the poor (none)
    I read a while ago that aid and care has become politicised in Afghanistan.

    Persons who aid the military through information in Afghanistan sometimes get help first, . Snitching is frowned upon all over the world, its no different in Afghanistan. Those who are reluctant for many many reasons, including fear of retribution do not. Remember that many of these people are desperately poor and have few resources.The policy has caused a lot of resentment towards some of the Aid workers. They have been put in this position by military tactics and pressure and has made them the target of resentment by the local people.

    I do hope this is not the case here.I have a huge amount of respect for the Aid workers.
