News of Afghanistan VII


Hi, my Dad will be back in a minute - please feel free to browse the store in the meantime...

Another week of interesting stories from Afghanistan. Lets get right to it!


The Bulgarians will help run operations at Kabul International Airport.


"Yeah, Pervez, I'm talkin' to you!"

Somehow I get the feeling that Afghanistan and Pakistan still have a little making up to do...

Who is the enemy in Afghanistan? This should give you a little idea - attacking UN deminers. [I have written about this myself in the past].


Yes, yes - more on my constant theme of what do you do with the former militiamen.

Friends offer to help when things get scary.


Afghan editorial cartoon from e-Ariana.

In music news - the new National Anthem is in Pashto, and based on a poem.

Why you shouldn't bother an Afghan at 8:30pm... Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi. Heh.

Canada is the latest to show they are deadly serious when it comes to backing Afghanistan.


Those frickin' weapons caches around Bagram... It's going to take a while to finish cleaning that area up.

When you set up a fixed position against an opponent that has air power, you die.

Speaking of Bagram, and other places in CFC-A, here is link to the Freedom Watch, an in-house paper.

Guess there wasn't room for them at Yale. Fortunately there was somewhere else.

Refugees - please leave. Uh-oh.


This Week's Afghan News Source is Kabul Press


UPDATE:
The VOA doesn't ask "paper of plastic"? They ask

Pashto or ...


Dari?

Some humor in the midst of these difficult times is always welcome by me! Sometimes people forget we are still fighting the war in terrorism in Afghanistan too but please know your work there is greatly appreciated and needed! I'll continue to check for more of the "News of Afghanistan" - keep it coming.

It's good to see that humor can still shine despite what's going on. Thanks for your efforts to bring to light a few interesting (and a few comincal) stories that the MSM seems to ignore.
