KABUL, AFGHANISTAN - FEBRUARY 2009: A woman wearing a burqa begs for money through a car window in Kabul. Wrapped in their burqas, this society which descriminates against women gives widows little option to beg, in the absence of their deceased husbands. Afghanistan has become the key war zone for the new US administration. After years of focus on Iraq, the US government has realized how critical an issue Afghanistan really is. It is a country all too used to broken promises, used to death and used to fighting for its survival. Afghans have increasingly lost hope, and have lost faith in the promises made by the Western World. They now seem focussed on daily survival despite the hardships and social issues that they face on a constant basis.
