ctrp351 Post Election Update from Kabul

Rooftops of Kabul

4 Days after the 2010 Parliamentary Elections in Afghanistan, some audio reflections on how it all went and what is to come.

Another fine source for post-election news, my good friends at Democracy International

Flattr this!

    I bet when Stalin held phony elections in Poland and other Eastern Bloc countries after World War Two the Soviets also sent a lot of bright, idealistic young Russians to help out and teach the wonders of Marxist-Leninism to the locals. But those countries were still Soviet satellites, even after their free and fair elections. Funny how that works, huh? Also, what you said on this audio about the vote and your prediction a few posts back about how “something is happening in this country” or whatever: Wrong! 1) You can’t have fair elections without the Pashtun. 2) Turnout was a joke and whatever actual voting took place was canceled out in a tsunami of fraud, ballot stuffing, intimidation and corruption.

    Better luck next time! Hope your conscience about providing propaganda cover for the biggest bullies on the planet and helping legitimize an illegal occupation and a murderous war doesn’t bother you too much!

      Is this how its going to be? I post and you throw semi insults at me? Or are you not trying to insult me? Im just trying to figure out what the end game between you and this site is. I see your point of view, you see mine, as well as my experience. Not sure theres much more to be done.

    I won’t post any more comments. I found your podcast through wikileaks and I liked some of the subsequent audios, especially the one about Chile and the possible squatting of abandoned buildings in Portugal. But hanging with the so called “international community” crew in Afghanistan triggered my troll gene, I guess, but I already explained my point of view.
