The United Nations has released a map that shows the security situation in Afghanistan and the amount of risk in the different areas.
In October month, that was similar to the map from March, shows a high risk in the southern part of the country painted in red with noted that there isn’t any security improvements noted.
The October map did also upgrade 16 districts that used to be more secure as “high risk”. These are in; Badghis, Sar-ePul, Balkh, Parwan, Baghlan, Samangan, Faryab, Laghman and Takhar provinces. Only two districts that used to be “high risk” districts received a safer rating; one in Kunduz and one in Herat.
Its obvious that there has been instability and much violence in 2010, making everyday life difficult for the citizens. Taliban has also attacked UN buildings and their personnel repeatedly claiming that they are the “instrument of American imperialism”.
Another report from the Canadian government states: “an increasingly volatile nation in which assassinations are growing and casualtioes are reaching new record levels on a regular basis”, even though some progress has been made. With this they have made it chrystal clear that the security situation has gotten worse, not better.
The unpopular war and the worsening situation in the country is a bad combination of the politicians who are trying to make acareer and wealth out of selling the war and has led to the detoriation of the country.
