A pardon by President Karzai.

The Cabinet gets sworn in too.

I got a shiver reading this one - I used to go up and down this road more than anyone except CSM Bones. Glad they missed...

Man I hate Gulbuddin Hekmatyar - his boys (the HIG or Hezb-i-Islami Gulbuddin, Party of Islam, Gulbuddin faction) used to shoot at us every so often.

Pakistan says...our border is legit. Afghans may tend to disagree.

hmmm.. you know that the Indian army torture and kill thousands too I hope. Almost every Kashmiri in Delhi claims to have a cigarette burn on the end of their dick. They talk of whole villages being made to stand for days in the sunlight.

Also the Indian workers have a choice between the dangers of terrorism in Afghan or dangerous working practice and huge debts in the Arabian peninsula. I should imagine less would die from terrorism. They probably get treated much better in Afghanistan too.

Did I tell you I met some british Taliban on the Afghan border in 2000? The only fundamentalists who didn't want to drag me off and convert me or kill me.

Hemsha - where are you from? I spent most of my time in Parwan and Kapisa (some in Kabul).
