Here we go ... again


Two British soldiers dead in Afghanistan in area just down the road from maiwand which appears in an earlier post on this blog. We're in for a long and bloody involvement in Afghanistan all over again.

If anyone's interested in why this huge and poverty stricken country is so important, I'd like to recommend a book by a historian called Peter Hopkirk. It's genuinely illuminating and excellent about how and why we came to be involved in this part of the world.
