Nearly a quarter century of armed conflict left the Afghan state broken, its national institutions virtually non-existent, and its economy in ruins. Traditional authority was undermined while many of the society’s norms seemed transformed. With the end of 2001, the country had become effectively a ward of the international community with the United States taking the lead in securing it from anti-regime elements. Progress was soon registered in establishing an interim leadership, a transitional government framework, and democratic goals. But the rebuilding of an Afghan state promises to be a slow and difficult project, dependent on a continued international commitment of assistance and the ability of Afghans to join together in overcoming, above all, their deep ethnic divisions.


Nietzche: God is dead. God remains dead. And we have killed him. How shall we comfort ourselves, the murderers of all murderers? Is not the greatness of this deed too great for us? Must we ourselves not become gods simply to appear worthy of it?
