Fresh Attack in Afghanistan – a threat to Nation Building efforts ?
There seems to be now a hide and seek battle with Taliban and ISAF. The new death toll in 14th July, 2008 claiming 9 US lives is an manifestation of it. The US death toll has shocked media and political observer, though there is a huge loss of life, in Taliban end also. Just when the country was getting back to the rhythm of democracy, the rise of Taliban is posing a new threat towards the progress of democracy and the well-being of the people out there. Afghanistan recently got a huge International support to rebuild the nation in 12th June 2008 at Paris, on presentation of Afghanistan National Development Strategy (ANDS) which seeks to take the country on achieving the UN Millennium Development Goals (MDG) by 2020. The recent security threats and ambushing from Taliban, has put a strong challenge on the Nation Building efforts of the Government of Afghanistan.
