Shock finding: Afghan government corrupt

No surprises here from this BBC report:

The US defence department has said that only a quarter of what it regards as key regions in Afghanistan support the government of President Hamid Karzai.

The Pentagon said in a report that much of the country was either neutral to the central Afghan authorities or supportive of the Taliban insurgency.

It blamed government corruption and lack of efficiency as major reasons for people's distrust of the authorities.

Readers are encouraged to nominate a Muslim country with a government that is both efficient and honest.

Editing note: In response to emails to management, the sentence directly above was editing to no longer state that no predominantly Muslim country has a government that is both efficient and honest, to instead ask for suggestions of efficient and honest predominantly Muslim countries.

No predominantly Muslim country has a government that is both efficient *OR* honest.

There, fixed that for you.

You can rely on Dan Lewis to comment on any post that mentions Islam. He must be an expert. Like other Muslim Asians who read this important Asian blog, I'd love to know why Dan Lewis is so full of hatred for Muslim people.

Intrigued Asian Reader, preview is your friend. You seem to have omitted to mention those predominantly Muslim countries that have an efficient or honest government.
