News of Afghanistan - the 55th edition

Grab your mug of Alokozay BOP1 Leaf Tea, raise it in honor of The World's Greatest Military Contractor (he's the one who got mine for me, thanks Haji-o-matic!) and read on!

An honest assesment of French military impact in Afghanistan?

A small, but interesting set of stories. Check the last one for Dole Foods thoughts on Afghan investment.

Afghan Rail history!

Abdullah Abdullah looks back.

So, how is that refugee problem? Urk. Argh!

Hurrah for the Kiwis! I rather liked working with them, their NSE CDR whiole I was there, LTC Aaron Couchman, was a good man.

Advice for Afghan Moms.

Canadian Parliamentary squabbling. You know, I never thought I would type those three words together in a non-funny way.

Iran is deporting around 5,000 refugees a day back to Afghanistan, which lacks the capacity to feed and accommodate them, an Afghan official said Thursday. In the last three days, Iran has deported Afghan refugees living illegally in the Islamic republic through the Zaranj border-crossing in southwestern Nimroz province, said Interior Ministry spokesman Zemeri Bashary.

More ungood, plus ungood news. I guess at least something is being done about capturing awareness of this subject.

Ha, I guess the Afghans have two seasons just like us - "Winter" and "Road Construction"!

The Kabul cricket juggernaut rolls on!
