Afghanistan is a state in south of Asia, and count as a part of Central Asia. The country has a lot if montaíns and no coastline.The mighty montainmassive called "Hindukush" meaning -stop India,goes thrue the whole country from north-east to the west border.10% of the area of this rough country is useful for farming.The fresh water is limited. The clima is like other countries with no coast warm summers and cold winters.It is a country where earthquakes are common. It is surrounded by Pakistan in the south and east, Iran in the west, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan and Tadzjikistan in the north,China in the east. The name Afghanistan means " The land of the Afghans".
During the early ages it was called Ariana or Bactria.During the middle age the name Khorasan was used.
Afghanistan is a republic and was delceared índependent from The united Kingdom 1919 after many years of opression.It was controlled by the brittish impire the whoole century 1800. The nations constitution is from 1923.
It is a state that have suffered from war in all times of its history. And it is a long history.
In 1978 the Afghan communistparty got the power by weapons. The communistregim was cahllanged by Mujaheddin, wich was supported by the USA who armed and trained 35000 gerillasoldiers from the Mujaheddin.When the communistregim was near to surrender the Sovjetunion invaded Afghanistan and during the following ten years the country was suffering under the Afghan-Sovjet war.Sovjet retired in 1989.The inside war in Afghanistan created caos! In 1996 Taliban got the power supported by The USA and Pakistan.The new law of Sharia was a fact. We all knew about the actions the led to the war wich still goes on today. The terroristattacs on on the amarican ambassades in Kenya ans Tanzania, And the towers in NY. When taliban refused to give up Osama Bin Laden to The USA wich decleared war and the UN made sanctions against Afghanistan. Afghanistan was attaced by the USA 7/10-2001. And the Taliban was defeeted.But it is still strong and fights and will never give up. They are terrorising the Afghanistan people and the women and children are suffering. And so are everyone who not believe in the Sharialaws.
In the end of 2001 the there was a initiativ taken to the ISAF - International Security Assistance Force. This force is operating in Afganistan to keep peace,support the president Hamid Karzais gouvernment, keep the law and order, help rebuild the infrastructure of the country and defend human rights!
The country get a lot of economic support for reconstruction.
Today Taliban are controlling 10% of the country. Afghanistan is an extremly poor country.Warlords are terrorising all over.The Infrastructure is totally out of order. There are still a lot of landmines and splittermines left out in the area. The women of Afghanistan still have to wear burka and can not move free.They have to followed by a male relative outside the house.If they brake a law they will be punished.The only work allowed for women outside the home are healthcare.Less than 10% of the women can read and write. There are still Sharia...Girls still get married at age 12-15 years. The women have separate hospitals of very low standard.70 000 women dies every year in childbirth and coplication from it. Schools for girl are bombed by Taliban. For about 4 years ago 1 milj cildren in Afghanistan was attending school none of them girls, now with the work of the ISAF and help from outside 4 milj children goes to school and 35% of them are girls.The people who dedicate there service to Afganistan does a difference!!

I am not saying I was happy and shouted yippie when she told me, and I am sure I am going to have a terrible time in six mounth until she is back, but I am sure she will make a difference!! All the soldiers and helporganizations will, even if it will take a long long time!
And I am so very proud of her!!! And of all who does there service to protect and develope democraty!! And stands up for human rights.
We all should!!
At least we all should be proud over our soldiers in Afghanistan and support them in every way we can! they are on a hard and important mission and they are risking there lives!!!!!!! For human rights and democraty!
There are many parants out there like me that will go to bed worried every night praying for there children, and some of us will never see them alive again!

Support the helporganizatons so moore children can go to school and learn to read and write. Education is the key to defeet Taliban! People must be educated so they can read the holy books by themselves and see what thay really says!Education is FREEDOM!
I belive in God! I really do! And so does this human beeings!If we call him God, Allah or anything else does not matter! We have to show every human respect and all shall have the same rights some day! We must belive in that!
I do not believe in war! But, we have to defend human rights and democraty everyone of us! And it is sad that Taliban only understand the power of weapons!In the year of 2009 it should not be nessecery,but it is!
