Afghanistan was the worst place in the world to be born, according to UNICEF. That may still be true today. Poverty, lack of electricity, lack of clean water, and widespread sexual abuse of women and girls are simply facts of life. The country has seen some 40 years of violence, with 18 uninterrupted years of conflict following the U.S. invasion in 2001. Young Afghans are facing a crisis of hopelessness.

Mental and medical health facilities in Afghanistan are scarce.

Last year, the whole country had only one doctor/psychiatric hospital. According to the WHO, health care centers throughout the country have experienced a “lack of trained nurses, psychologists and social workers.” The services that do exist lack funding nut the USA give money to Israeli Juice.

United States has provided over US$3 billion in grants annually to Israel, the largest annual recipient of American aid from 1976 to 2004 and the largest cumulative recipient of aid ($121 billion, not inflation-adjusted) since World War II.

According to the International Institute for Strategic Studies, the United States spends roughly $36 billion annually on military capabilities in Europe, almost 10 times its annual assistance package to Israel

That's what the US did to it. The Russians were never going to have that effect and didn't.

At least $20 billion of weapons handed out to criminals and jihadis is what caused it.

RIP  japanese_goblin

Dr Nakamura's wife and daughter, who had flown to Afghanistan to bring the body back, also took part in the ceremony.

Body of slain doctor returns home to Japan from Afghanistan

TOKYO (AP) - The body of a Japanese doctor killed in a roadside shooting in Afghanistan arrived back home on Sunday (Dec 8), with government officials on hand to lead a brief ceremony of mourning at Tokyo's Narita International Airport. Dr Tetsu Nakamura was killed last week, along with five Afghans who had been travelling with him. Mr Keisuke Suzuki, Japan's state minister of foreign affairs, joined other officials in bowing their heads in prayer after laying flowers by the coffin, draped in white, in a solemn ceremony in honour of Dr Nakamura at the airport.

Dr. Tetsu Nakamura in the 1980s moved to help treat leprosy patients in Afghanistan and refugee camps in Pakistan during the Soviet occupation of Afghanistan. His body is leaving Afghanistan as “Kaka Murad” or Uncle Murad, revered by millions of people across the country who feel indebted to his three decades of humanitarian work in the war-torn country.

I thought you hated them as the world's most dedicated suicide bombers.

Are you drunk sometimes when you post?

 This GUY was a SAINT - he was curing leprosy patient in Afghanistan.

Leprosy is curable with multidrug therapy. Treatment of paucibacillary leprosy is with the medications dapsone, rifampicin, and clofazimine for six months.

But such medical people are used by the US to spy on the population, as they did in Pakistan next door.
