Scenes from Afghanistan

Not surprisingly, most Afghans now see soldiers from abroad as part of the problem. They do not believe that the hunt for Taliban and al Qaeda members justifies propping up a corrupt government, killing innocent civilians, and arresting hundreds of Afghan men without informing their families or laying charges.

I'm sure they'll come around after their own surge brings them the same benefits the Iraqis have enjoyed from theirs. The ones who are still living, that is.

But in the meantime, it's such a burden to have them not appreciate everything we're doing for them.

Is that cock fighting or soccer? I never can tell.
