Arab mindset It seems to me that the mindset of the arabs (afghanistan people i.e) are at a different level than ours in the west. We would typically look at the situation and think that we needed hospitals for the sick, equipment to harnest our natural resources so that we can get a stable and good economy, build schools to educate our children etc. They don't seem to think about these things at all. It's like its not even an option for them to try to improve their own living standards. Anyone else out there who has similar thought?
