I trust the article conveys a realistic picture of mood and
thinking among Afghans. One would have wished for
some information about the views and attitude of Taliban
supporters, as well as for a rough sketch of differences in
attitude between Pashtuns, Tajiks, Hazara, and speakers
of Dari in Kabul.
What I miss in this report most is some reference to
the problem of outright fraud: How can we be sure
the correct results will be given?
Story is anecdotal, but the interviews likely reflect widely held views among Afghans.
It is understandable that Afghans are in survival mode after all they've been through. Also that they seem willing to trade temporary peace for long-term conflict and oppression if they don't deal with the Taliban now.
