A win for the conservatives

New York Times, October 23:

“More than a month after the elections, nearly all provisional results have finally been released for Afghanistan’s Parliament and provincial assemblies, cementing a victory for Islamic conservatives and the jihad fighters involved in the wars of the past two decades.”

An unsurprising result. And a government likely to become aggressive against Western influence. American/Australian/British “democracy” is a very sweet thing…especially if you’re a warlord, drug trafficker or criminal.
