CAN ANYONE EXPLAIN THE "STILL"?:

Afghans 'still hopeful on future' (BBC, 12/03/07)

Most Afghans are relatively hopeful about their future, an opinion poll commissioned by the BBC has suggested.

They also support the current Afghan government and the presence of overseas troops, and oppose the Taleban. [...]

Overall, the figures indicate that the peaceful north of Afghanistan is significantly more satisfied than the troubled south. Most dissatisfaction is found in the south-west, where the Taleban are most active.

Maybe it's a BBC internal acronym for "Sucks That I Like Losing".

The 'Still' is Our Betters way of saying 'Why don't these foolish barbarians just drop back into despair and slaughter one another? How can we prove the Yanks are wrong if these Afghans won't despair?'
