    The Kabul in William Podlich's photographs is an almost unrecognizable place -- a bustling capital of modern cars, green parks, and nattily attired men and women, many wearing Western dress.

    A place where women -- Afghans and foreigners -- could freely walk the streets.

    A peaceful place where tourists, unconcerned for their safety, could take buses to the major historic sites in the country or across the border to Pakistan.

    Those are some very cool photographs.

    Yep Afghanistan, like most of the Middle East, has been really screwed over by the 1st world’s proxy wars.
