Farewell Kabul,Christina Lamb

isbn: 9780007256921 starts in 2001 and goes through the old ground of this (my blog) before mentioning the russians (my blog) and the we get to the latest debacle of which you can take your pick of books (my blog).

Anyhow when the rest of the media eventually woke up and some interesting documentaries where made (my blog) and now its 2015.

The book focuses on Pakistan which is an uncivilised place and the main irritant for Afghanistan.  The evidence of collusion is now in the open and the mismanagement of ‘democratic’ Afghanistan is also there.

The lesson from this is that dealing with warlords, ‘elders’ counts for nothing as they are nearly as bad as the enemy.
