November 4 1800

Serious about security in the south

Friendly stray on COP. These "pets" are discouraged, many carry rabies.Yikes

Typical transport to assessment projects

It is now beginning to really feel like fall with lows in the 40's and soon into the 30's. Terrible violence in larger cities coming primaraly from Haqqani network. These attacks are primarily directed at officials, Afghan police and Army units. Often there is collateral damage to civilians. The Taliban has announced a plan to keep civilians out of the attacks. Last week yet another female suicide bomber  in Kandahar,  figure that out. The Taliban has seemingly nothing to offer that gender, another example of religious brainwashing. 208 days.
