News of Afghanistan X

The staff of "News of Afghanistan" (actually they are the elders of Rogmati)

Have I really done this 10 times already? Or is it X times already? Anyhoo - off we go!
Here is a quick whip 'round by Radio Free Afghanistan.
A thoughtful grumble.
The beat-down goes on.

Motherhood in Afghanistan - women there have an awfully tough start (and it don't get any easier later, either).

Kashmir / Afghanistan - a connection?
NATO tightens its grip? NATO asks for help? Hmmm.
There just have to be a hundred metaphors in this picture...

My friend is cleaning house. Yeah!
Another example of the Central Asian Child Labor Law - All children shall labor, that is the law.
Avian Flu, still lurking?

Bangladesh is a long way from Afghanistan. Interesting that they pay such close attention.

India is a great power. They have an airbase up in Tajikistan, now. They run maritime air patrols all the way out to Aden and anti-piracy patrols to Somalia. India has lots of well-educated, entrepreneurial people and parts of India are First World.

I don't think Pakistan as it is currently configured will survive the death of Musharraf. Indian forces will play a key role in securing Islamabad's nukes. We (the Americans) need to be talking to them.

"75-Year-Old Army Surgeon Heading To Afghanistan"

He served a 6-mo. tour in Iraq last year. A retired Colonel, he enlisted in the National Guard because he didn't think it was right that just the younger soldiers should serve their country in this war in the Middle East.

Great article, a great and accomplished man, and thanks for the link!

I met a 69 year old former-retired COL in the US Army Medical Corps at bagram AF in 2004 - who was bored to tears in retirement and wanted to help... they are out there, believe it or not!

Never look back at a horse/donkey/mule if you want it to follow you. Look ahead at where you're going.

Glad to hear of the retired folks that go back to help out with the medical stuff.
I was pondering the possibility of doing it myself when I retire. Course the little lady might freak out big time at home...sigh.

BTW, I posted an article about Vogue putting out a new edition to help our military get in touch with their feminine side.
You might look at it to get a chuckle.
