News of Afghanistan XI
Friday again, eh? Must be time for the News...
I don't know how I missed this diplomatic development. Afghanistan continues to rejoin the community of nations.
Speaking of diplomacy... (This also lets me pound on one of my pet subjects as well - what do you do with the militias?)
Swords to plowshares, baby. Swords to plowshares.
See Radio Free Afghanistan's Daily Summary (the bottom story is curious, and not too good a development either).
More diplomacy! One-note Johnny today, aren't I?
Now, back to the war.
Afghanistan loves "Bollywood" - I hope Kabul Express turns out.
Arshad will next be seen in Kabul Express
Again, back to the war.

Economics, economics - the dismal science in Afghanistan (see especially this mistake - "Many Afghans are not used to paying income tax, so it will take some time for them to become accustomed to it." Really? I know I am stepping out on a limb here, but somehow I suspect the Afghans will manage to NOT pay this in droves. 5000 years of experience in trying to keep other hands off of what is theirs...)

More economics (and diplomacy too!)
Cry "Uncle" and receive mercy.
