"Yet Afghanistan is an incredible market for an indigenous cement plant. It's one of the only countries in the world without its own cement industry, and there are tremendous opportunities for building materials."---- Across the country, Afghanis tell pollsters that they don't like the Taliban and their Pakistani-flavored fundamentalism, but they're also unhappy with the corruption within Hamid Karzai's government. ---- Whether in business or in politics, Afghanistan seems beset by powerful factions bleeding the wealth and vitality of the struggling country.
