A way to get more funding which was a form of blackmail that they refused to accept.They're building streets, not roads. There's a difference. There are no real development projects in Afghanistan.
The fact that they don't have funding is more proof that Afghanistan is getting worse. This isn't a symptom of new government, it's a symptom of incompetence, considering the world literally gave them a way to get more funding.
They don't have governing skills, they have discipline, and even that's questionable at best.
Look I despise Afghanistan, it's a country that has continuously supported terrorism and a bunch of fanatical genocidal racists.
But the facts are they are doing the best with what they have - trying to build connections, initiate projects - all without letting go of their values and beliefs.
If they were in Pakistan's position they'd definitely handle this country much much better. It's a harsh truth. Pakistan is a clown show.
