In Afghanistan’s capital, opinions are mixed about the benefits brought by the 10-year battle against the Taliban. NBC News’ Sohel Uddin talked to four political science students at Kabul University about the changes they’ve experienced and their hopes for the future. They said economic and security problems, as well as endemic corruption, largely outweigh any benefits the presence of foreign troops and aid workers may have brought to the country.
They also say that while democracy has been installed, progress is limited mainly to the country’s cities -- for the vast majority of Afghans in the countryside the march towards prosperity, peace and development has been painfully slow.
