Using the Brookings' Institute's Afghanistan index, Josh Narins has a post describing some of the problems that are growing in Afghanistan. War-related deaths are going up, as are people in need of food aid and the number of forgeign troops stationed in Afghanistan.
The U.S. casualty figures don't look so hot either.
There was an article in the American Conservative a few years back that predicted that things would go sour in Afghanistan, but I can't find it right now.
That is all.
