Afghans say life no better after invasion

SPIN BOLDAK, Afghanistan: Seven years after the attacks on New York and Washington, the event that sparked off the U.S.-led invasion of Afghanistan, many Afghans say life is no better and some say its worse.
Following the overthrow of the hardline Islamist Taliban in late 2001 by U.S.-led and Afghan forces, Afghans hoped their country, ravaged by decades of war, would finally see peace.
A recent spate of civilian deaths caused by U.S.-led air strikes has added salt to their wounds.
“After the 9/11 attacks, when the U.S. and her allies overthrew the Taliban government, the U.S. promised the Afghan nation stability, safety and jobs,” Haji Allah Dad, a 60-year-old trader in the southern town of Spin Boldak, said.
“But they have done nothing for us. They drop bombs on the civilian population and have killed thousands of Afghans in the last seven years, while the Taliban get stronger day by day.” …
“We feel no change in our lives,” said Mohammad Usman, a 40-year-old shopkeeper from Spin Boldak.
“They (foreign forces) are not the enemy of the Taliban, they are the enemy of the Afghan people. The U.S. army calls us al Qaeda and kills us but we don’t know what al-Qaeda is.”
