Kabul Forever

Anyone born after 2000 has literally spent half their lives living in the era of war in Afghanistan and death to American and innocent Afghan civilians. President Obama has proclaimed the desire of the United States to depart from this unfortunate land now that the “surge” has ended violence in Afghanistan. Oh, latest figures indicate that 299 police have been killed this past month in Afghanistan and 610 wounded. Yesterday, a group of suicide bombers blew themselves up in Kabul and tomorrow some other suicide bombers will detonate themselves and leave this world.

Death proceeds while the family of President Hamid Karzai argues as to how to divide up the spoils of war for themselves and who becomes the head honcho now that Hamid is taking a break from power. OH, didn’t you know that Afghanistan is the “home” of the Karzai family?
