"The NATO occupying forces in combination with the Karzai government may have achieved what would seem to be impossible - to create a regime worse for the average Afghan than was the previous Taliban regime."

What a load of hyperbolic crap. Do you have any understanding at all of the Afghanistan situation?

No one's going to claim that the Karzai regime is anything like a model of integrity or good governance, but to suggest that it is worse than the brutal, repressive thugocracy it replaced is just downright moronic.

Further, to characterize the taliban as having an "abysmal human rights record" is gross understatement. China has an abysmal human rights record. The taliban had no conception of human rights at all.
