The Road to Torkham

The road from Kabul to Torkham, on the Afghan-Pakistan border, is a journey of pleasure and peril. CNN's Jonathan Wald captures the incredible images on the dust track turned highway, with scenes of desolate beauty but also reminders of the area's violence. Everyone who makes this trip is taking a risk.

    I wonder if President Hamid Karzai is aware of the tragic situation (above photos) of Civilians moving in such terrible condition. This one sided war has already created millions of refugees.
    and has killed thousands on both sides. Does he feel any pain seeing these poor people
    on the road running here and there?
    I can understand if the West do not feel any pain seeing their Soldiers killed, or suffering
    from PTSD (Mental disorder) or with cut limbs. But Karzai as a Muslim do not feel this pain
    is the most perplexing.
    My question to him: Is the Power and authority more precious to you then your citizens?
    Thank you
