    I've become pretty cautious about what Western media report about Islamic countries since the Libyan Revolution, though, as I've noticed that they, at times, paint a far more bleaker picture than the situation on the ground actually is.

    Couple that with the fact that the Taliban are not exactly popular with the vast majority of Afghans, and the picture there looks better than is often portrayed in the media.
