    US still struggling in Afghanistan

    From the Tucson Citizen: Three years later, U.S. still struggling in Afghanistan

    Officials remain upbeat about the pace of reconstruction and the chances for peace. A U.S. commander tells The Associated Press there will be a small reduction in the 16,700 American soldiers currently posted in Afghanistan by the summer. Yet the country is still wracked by kidnappings, execution-style killings, almost daily clashes with rebels and, this month, deadly anti-American protests. Concern is also growing over drug production that supplies nearly 90 percent of the world's heroin. "Afghanistan's security situation has deteriorated significantly in recent weeks," a Human Rights Watch statement warns. It says the United States must lead international efforts to quickly deploy extra troops to quell violence in remote parts of the country.
