This commment is unpublished.· 9 years agoAm I missing something? Of all the projects listed, most look like they have been or are close to being finished. I do notice the cost overruns especially for a couple of the power generating plants but also am aware that in the United States, proposed power plants are often over budget (sometimes by obscene amounts). Given that there is an active and growing insurgency, I was surprised by how good that report looked. And if the power can be supplied to the Afghanis in places like Kandahar, maybe Afghan public opinion can be turned around. However power generating infrastructure is pretty vunerable so keeping the juice flowing will be tough.
