Here we go … again

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk/5119934.stm

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.
