Michael’s May 2nd post is devoted to error-correcting a Wall Street Journal straight-news piece. RTWT. The closing:
…In fact, the media is not up-playing the danger in Afghanistan but seems to be grossly missing it. Unfortunately, I predict NATO and other forces will lose increasing numbers of soldiers in Afghanistan. The place is bad. Really bad. And itâ€™s getting worse. Yesterday an Indian engineer was murdered. They cut off his head. Also, yesterday, the car bomb in the photo above exploded close by some employees of a friend. I was close by two bombings in just six days in Lashkar Gah, a place they used to call â€œsafe.â€
It is easy to start a business in Afghanistan, and some people are truly making a lot of money. But Afghanistan is no place for rookies.
Please don’t forget Michael’s ‘tip jar’.
