News of Afghanistan ۲۸

This week's installment was created at a much more relaxed pace. Why? The World's Greatest Military Contractor™ made sure I have a mug of Alokozay Tea at hand...

"ahhh"

So let us get to it!

The morning round up.

Solatia payments made. The worst experience I ever had was one of these...

The refugee problem just hangs around.

NATO, put up or go away.

Looonnngggg term talks?

The business of Afghanistan should be business!

Kandahar - you figure it out. All I know is the airport there is mighty important (i.e. lots of pilgrims making the Hajj go through there) and it is a natural center for good times and bad.

China pitches in. Their interests are not as strong as the Iranian ones, but they do care what happens in Afghanistan.

I always wondered where I could get some Afghan music!

"It is much better to have a corrupt businessman than a dangerous warlord"

War? In Afghanistan?! Huh. I guess it is a good thing exhibits like this are around.

e-Ariana's latest editorial cartoon. Oooh, that one hurts.

Thanks, but if I remember corresctly, the US and Japan gave more...

The Chinese have always been involved. Remember they constructed the huge irrigation systems around Bagram back in the 60's. It always about trade on the old silk road to Iran. Pakistani Truck Mafias baby....
