Kabul Korrespondence

Fresh, factual, and funky view of Afghanistan and the surrounding Central Asian region

Dont count your chickens until they've hatched

Thursday, January 22, 2009

Like everyone else, I held my breath when Obama announced his intention to run for President. I blew out a gust of relief when he won the election. And I inhaled a breath of fresh air when he was sworn in as the new President.

But from the perspective of someone living in a country that is 99.5% controlled by the puppet strings of the US Foreign Policy.... I'm not going to count my chickens until they have hatched.

Yes we all have hope that this will be the catalyst for a new world (not new world order). And if I had to choose a president that could make up for all the mistakes of the previous 6 Presidents (at least), it would be Obama.

But this country has been well screwed up by the US and it is going to take a lot more than different coloured skin (I do admit I'm as excited as you about booting the Anglo-Saxons out of the seat). It is going to take more than different coloured skin, a good education and some charming speeches to fix the problems we have here in sunny Afghanistan.

So Super Obama the floor is yours, show us if you're a man of words or actions.
