News of Afghanistan - The 53rd Edition

It's a two mug of Alokozay tea day here. So here is the News, slighty disorganized and an hour or two late...

A little news round-up (I like the micro finance idea m'self)

Umm, maybe so, but what's yer point, boss? And what the heck is this "leasing" business?

"Rent to own!"

WTF?! I thought Dutch military "restraint" had died, along with several thousand innocents, at Srbenica. Guess not...

More worries about economics than the Taliban.

I rather like this. The painting they show, especially so.

Super Bazaar or EU?

Flood relief efforts - I remember helping, as best we could, in 2005.

And now a word from our Afghan cell phone providers: Roshan and Afghan Wireless. CSM Bones will have to give you the exact consumer review, heh.

Share and enjoy.

A park. Good idea.

Sure, like floods aren't enough.

This little article says a lot. I think the headline is a masterful one too.

One time event? So sez Karzai!!11!

The Canadian Forces are leasing some Leopard II tanks on a temporary basis in order to get the army through until the purchase of 100 Laeopards from Holland is completed this fall.
