SURE HELPS WHEN THERE IS NO ANTI-WAR PARTY:

Afghans more optimistic for future, survey shows (Adam Mynott, 1/11/10, BBC)

Most Afghans are increasingly optimistic about the state of their country, a poll commissioned by the BBC, ABC News and Germany's ARD shows.

Of more than 1,500 Afghans questioned, 70% said they believed Afghanistan was going in the right direction - a big jump from 40% a year ago.

Of those questioned, 68% now back the presence of US troops in Afghanistan, compared with 63% a year ago.
