Afganistan Gets Wired

Afghanistan, where the Internet was banned during the rule of the Taliban, will formally launch its .af domain for Afghani Web sites and e-mail addresses on Monday, the United Nations said.

In case you’re wondering whether this has anything to do with why the US acts the way it does sometimes,

All nongovernmental use of e-mail services and Web sites was punishable by death during the rule of the fundamentalist Taliban.

‘Nuff said. I don’t care what anybody says. Our way is better. Sometimes there is an absolute good, and taking out that government was such a case, just as it is in Iraq.
