Friday News o' Afghanistan III

Friends getting job promotions. 4 hour marriages? It must be time for the Friday News from Afghanistan...

Here are a few stories of security, politics, economics and life in Afghanistan. I am sure you hadn't heard a few of them.

Air Arabia to resume flights to Kabul.

The Kiwis decide to stay the course in Afghanistan. Fine by me - the New Zealanders I worked with in Afghanistan were good troops, doing good work, and irrepresibly friendly as well.

There is a shootin' in them thar hills. The south-southeast continues to see action.

What news of the Afghan National Army?

Tourism? In Afghanistan?! Please look at this site I found.

Cabinet confirmation time. President Karzai starts off with a couple of approvals.

Afghanistan and Pakistan hold military cooperation talks - and boy, are they ever needed.

Afghanistan, Pakistan and the US to hold a joint exercise too. Practice what you talk about...

It's Rocket O'Clock at the US Embassy in Kabul.

You can run, you can try to hide, but sooner or later, your past will catch up to you.

This week's featured Afghan News Source is the Afghan News Network.

UPDATE: Japan stays the course too.

Interesting article on the Dutch National Crimes Squad. Sounds like an old 60's TV show

I like the English used in the report. I can almost hear someone named Geert Van der Laan reading it in a charming little Dutch accent.
