Afghanistan

We don't hear much in our news about Afghanistan, do we? I'm not sure why but there are different ways to get some information about the region. One of my favorite is a blog called Afghan Lord. Afghan Lord has recently received threats from a user at an I.P. address that is apparently connected to the BBC in some way. I don't pretend to be an expert about these things but perhaps you are and can help.

Here is Afghan Lord's recent entry about the threats that he has received:

Afghan Lord being threatened!!

We here in America don't cotton too well to being threatened for utilizing our right to Free Speech. That's why we're so pissed off about a few things. McCain-Feingold for one. A judge in the Seattle area trying to limit the Free Speech of talk radio hosts discussing a reversal of a gasoline tax, for another.

Here is another link that shows the threats to our Afghani friend. They're terrible! Shame on them.

Global Voices

Afghan Lord - stay strong. In your quest to stay strong might I suggest remaining armed at all times? God bless Afghanistan and God bless you.

We do not hear much on the Afghanistan front on WOT because there is too much success, and not enough for the left to complain about, IMHO. Thanks for the links.

The Libs still whine that OBL got away, the Taliban still exists, and some farmers still grow Opium.

More telling is that France was with us in Afghanistan. That makes it a "legal" war in the eyes of the libs.

As for Afghan Lord, you can judge our success by the loudness of the libs whining :)

Now with this absolute barbarity in London the vile perpetrators have re-claimed a connection to Afghanistan - so yes, keep your powder dry Afghan Lord.
A good post by Chrenkoff illuminates: Pretty bad tactical mistake there - Iraq is unpopular, Afghanistan is not. Call for withdrawal from Iraq, and you're merely echoing public sentiment; call for withdrawal from Afghanistan, and you suddenly remind everyone about the war on terror, Al Qaeda, bin Laden, Taliban - all the nasty things that even the French and the Russians are united against.
