    A good notice of a n Afghan police corp, whose training has done good results.
    A hope trasformed on reality, the possibility for this corp to patrol Afghanistan land and border and assure law respect.
    it is on this contest that attacks are previdible and attention is required.
    Never id more dangerous that those who see they power’s loss.
