9/25/2004: The Afghani political campaign



Posters of electoral candidates campaigning ahead of Afghanistan's first presidential elections in October are displayed on a wall in the center of Kabul.

I wonder if the locals are disgusted by the negativity and mud-slinging...

Is that a woman running for office? She's allowed to have her picture, with no burkka, plastered all over the place?
Those Americans have ruined the place, I tell ya, just ruined it.



Cyber Wolf  Saturday Sep 25 10:15 PM

Knowing absolutely nothing about any of these candidates, I'd vote for the guy with the green background in his picture. That's a keen hat

They look more like the 'Wanted' pictures in the post office than campaign posters to me.

You've got a good eye. I think that's Karzai. General, favorite and current prez.


floki  Sunday Sep 26 03:32 AM

Correct

It is Hamid Karzai.

interesting fashion item

Want one of those karacul hats? You might want to check out the ingredients first...

http://www.ananova.com/news/story/sm...=news.quirkies

Mr. Karzai is certainly very stylish, but won't be getting a Christmas card from PETA any time soon.

A bit more information about karacul to be found at http://www.hsus.org/ace/12046.

I think the fellow with the ghostly advisor has potetial ...

The Afghans have been wearing the hats and coats made of Karakul lamb fur for thousands of years. Id bet that there were enough naturally occurring, dead, unborn and newborn lambs to supply what they needed.
The problem is globalization. When the style(material) becomes a profitable export, either to the next country or the next continent, the money talks and the sheep die. Sorry sheep, nothing personal, strictly business.

The guy with the green background looks just like some character actor - even down to the beard and moustache. I know I've seen that face in a movie... I just can't come up with it.



xoxoxoBruce  Tuesday Sep 28 05:16 PM

That guy with the green background (president Karzai) looks like Ben Kingsley. Gandhi, Shindler's list and about 40 other movies plus probably 100 stage plays.

"Hamid Karzai's famous hat made from aborted lamb fetuses"

I wanna know who came up with THIS fashion tip...yuck.



xoxoxoBruce  Wednesday Sep 29 11:24 PM

Can't help you, Garnet. I'm not THAT old.

I've heard the women candidate interviewed, she says she has had some real obsticles to overcome and is not given the same opportunities as the men are.

Interesting how some of the guys want to be portrayed so seriously and some are smiling, some in traditional garb and some in western clothes. Does the guy in the upper left look like the guy in the upper right corner less the hat?

One guy is reading a book, maybe the Koran? Why does that guy have a huge fountain pen on his poster, is he a writer or does he sell pens?

so many questions...

I'm so glad Mr. Rove is ready to help win hearts and minds in Iraq.

Yes. Yes, he does. The woman candidate has probably been shot by now (IF she was real to begin with) but I like the guy in the white outfit/black vest/cool hat. He looks just like my dad did when he was all set to give me a lecture on my curfew.

When I saw the dude in green, I immediately thought of Vedek Yarka in Deep Space Nine, played by actor Eric Avari.

I found a picture....that doesn't seem to be displaying.... ok, I'll link it instead...

Thank you.

That's been bugging me since the picture was first posted. I couldn't figure out where I'd seen the guy. I've never seen Deep Space Nine. But he also played the museum director in "The Mummy". Remarkable resemblance to the politician.


DanaC  Monday Oct 18 06:48 PM

Yes! that's who he is! It'd been bugging me also
