The world should be breathing a big sigh of relieft today.
Hamid Karzai has been declared winner of the first Afghan elections since the fall of the elections.
This is not only a victory for Karzai, it’s also a victory for the President Bush, NATO, and the UN. All of which have played a major role in changing, securing, and democratizing Afghanistan.
It remains to be seen whether Karzai will be able to effectively control the entire country, but I think that his widespread support will eventually lead to a more secure and prosperous Afghanistan.
