Long before the Taliban took over as rulers of Afghanistan, the country was one of the most progressive in the Islamic world, in such areas as culture and women's rights/education. Granted, this is just a bodybuilding show, but it is evidence of more cultural modernity in a nation that just a few years ago was living in the societal stone age. (Actually that statement may be a bit harsh. To Neaderthals.) Though the impact of our actions in Iraq may create debate on different sides of the cultural poles, I dont think anyone can argue about the good that we've done in Afghanistan.
