Hell would freeze over before an election in Aghanistan was fair.Course there will be fraud on the local level...but i seriously doubt America and other countries would put so much resources into this war and actually let free and fair elections take place.Far too much risk in that.I know i will get called an American/British basher etc but to me it's common sense...
