Good News from Afghanistan
To all those who think Afghanistan is all bad news and proof of US failure: read the news from Mazar-i-Sharif (via: Oxblog).
I’ve covered this briefly before, but it goes without saying that the
fact that disarmament of warlords in the north is proceeding beyond
just words is fabulous to hear. It’s also good to hear that Rumsfeld
was on hand to encourage one of the warlords, General Abdul Rashid
Dostum (an Uzbek), to pick up the pace on disarmament. General Atta Mohammed (a Tajik) has turned over much more weaponry.
