The way of the future in Afghanistan

On 12 Jan in Afghanistan there was a protest against the government during which things got violent and the local school was burned down in the village of Garmsir. US Marines were present but did not interfere at all, as no lives were threatened. Last week about 800 local residents gathered to discuss what had happened. One major concern was that a Quran had been desecrated–indeed, about 300 copies had burned with the school.br /br /The local governor pointed out that the demonstration was not like the local population. He pointed out that it was the Taliban, the local terrorists, who stired people up. The loss of the school, the place the future citizens were being educated to help bring a better future to the area, plus the distrust among the local people was their goal.br /br /All agreed that they must work together. They also thanked the Marines for being respectful during the disturbance. This is the way of the future for this area–recognizing who the enemy really is.
