News of Afghanistan XII

Alrighty then. What are we at...week 12 of the information round up? Let's get to it then!

It's graduation season for the police too!

Everybody is after the independent press in Afghanistan [follow the link for extra bonus cattiness between Musharraf and Kazai - meow!] Here is some more reaction.

"Yeah. I'm talkin' to you!" "We have called a press conference to berate you"

Meowrrr! C'mon, guys. Lets get this fixed, OK?

I saw this at the gallery - too cool. It is supposed to be an Ariana ticket. Beats the e-ticket I get from United...

And speaking of Ariana - here is little picture I took at Kabul Airport in June, 2004.

Now back to the war.

Nuristan is a tough place. Damn. Say a prayer for the families of the fallen, please.

The bad guys are getting killed. Alot.

Please aquire this target.

Some thoughts on British involvement and history.

Over to the Dismal Science.

I sure hope this guy is right.

I sure hope this gets stopped.

Next time your local Chamber of Commerce complains about having it tough - refer them here.

Back to the rest of the world.

Afghan hunger Norway?

Afghans crazy about soccer? Yeah, I can vouch for that.

What do you do abut Karzai and his comments that 'the sons of the land are being killed by coalition forces and a better way need to be found'?

Karzai has a domestic constituency to address. Also, he is getting darn tired and voicing some frustration at EVERYONE in this fight. (I.E., He and Musharaff have been spitting and hissing in-between attempts to work things out).
I don't envy Karzai and his position one tiny bit.
