I was thinking about working in a postal facility in Afghanistan and wanted to know the actual dangers that one may encounter in the country
I suggest you go to the Afghanistan Forum and read the replies to the two posts before yours, especially those from afghanguy and basrah.
Afghanistan is too complex a situation to describe on these travel forums.
I would suggest you to look for forums which especially cater to traveling to/ living in troubled areas.
Having said that, I can say - without actually visiting the country - that the life in Afghanistan may be a lot different than what is portrayed in the popular media.
