On Afghanistan, and some other countries

From BBC Radio 4, Simpson in Afghanistan, available to listen for the next four days. Reporting and comment from correspondent John Simpson, highly recommended.

A short post from The New Yorker’s Lawrence Wright, Underestimating Al Qaeda. Mr Wright is the author of much valuable in-depth reporting in this area.

Basics from The Canada-Afghanistan Blog, Afghanistan is not Iran, and from Terry Glavin, Afghanistan is not Vietnam.

Speaking of Vietnam, not a good place to be a blogger, see herehere and here.
