PostSubject: UK commander admits to better security under Taliban   Sat Dec 05, 2009 5:48 am

A senior British general in Afghanistan says that travelling across the war-torn country is more dangerous now than it was under the Taliban regime eight years ago.

Major-General Nick Carter, who leads NATO forces in southern Afghanistan, said in a BBC interview that Taliban militants had ensured security on the main highways in a very effective way.

Carter also noted that young women could travel alone between major cities without the risk of being harmed before the US-led invasion of Afghanistan in 2001.

"You could put your daughter on a bus in Kabul sure in the knowledge that she would get in one piece to Kandahar.
That is not the case at the moment, and we need to change that."

The interview comes after the US President Barack Obama and his NATO allies pledged to dispatch 35,000 more troops to Afghanistan in a supposed effort to end the eight-year long conflict there.

Although nearly 110,000 foreign troops are currently fighting the Taliban militants in Afghanistan, they have not yet succeeded in establishing stability in the country.

The Taliban were 'officially' ousted from Afghanistan following the US-led invasion of the country eight years ago.
