I wouldn't hold my breath on Afghanistan stabilizing anytime soon.

Irak might be an option

Head over to Lonely Planet Thorntree and you'll be surprised how many people travelled to Afghanistan in the last year or so. Sure many are aid workers or similar, but there are also a bunch of "hippies" nostalgic for the days when Afghanistan had the best and cheapest joints in the whole world. Reading the messages there you easily get convinced that a trip to Afghanistan right now is not such a completely daft idea...

I will let those who want to score cheap drugs beat me to Afghanistan. As long as there are hundreds of muslim fanatics that will strap on a bomb or drive a car into a crowd of infidels, I'll pass.
