I came across this article on the BBC. Interesting reading ?
What are the views of ordinary Afghan civilians towards Isaf?
A poll commissioned by the BBC in December across all of Afghanistan's 34 provinces revealed that most Afghans supported the presence of overseas troops, and opposed the Taleban.
Around 71% of respondents said they supported or strongly supported the presence of US military forces in Afghanistan, with 67% supporting or strongly supporting the Isaf peacekeeping mission.
Overall, the figures indicated that the peaceful north of Afghanistan was significantly more satisfied than the troubled south. Most dissatisfaction was found in the south-west, where the Taleban are most active.
The poll suggested that despite another year of conflict, confidence and hope in the future were only slightly dented.
