Friday News o' Afghanistan
Ok, I know, I know - this will not be anything close to Arthur's "Good News From Afghanistan".
Be that as it may, here's some news from Afghanistan that you may not have heard - good, bad and in-between:
Progress in Bahlk, and in a manner that is doubly good.
As I have harped upon many times before, mines keep hurting people in Afghanistan. Here is a story about one group of the injured.
If you think I am slightly obsessed about mines - spot on. I hate what is happening in Afghanistan because of them. We keep ending up having to do things like this.
President Karzai speaks about the case of the convert.
Afghanistan shows that it is more sophisticated politically than people might think. The Parliament is sticking it in Karzai's ear, just a bit. Confirmation of cabinet members, heh.
The Taliban remnants show their true care and concern for the country.
"Everyone prefers her own country" More people returning home.
The Afghan military aviation community starts its rebirth!
Here is an excellent site to find more news sources.
Hope this helped you get a little idea of what is going on in Afghanistan.
UPDATE: Thanks to commenter JAF for this one
