The future of Afghanistan

Today is a big day. After a thirteen year occupation, the Nations of Virtue are giving the country back to the warlords and religious nutters.

But not really. Read the fine print, and you'll see that "leaving" Afghanistan entails leaving behind 13,000 troops plus an indeterminate number of "contractors."

In other words, today's ceremonies are primarily a PR exercise intended for domestic consumption in the Nations of Virtue.

So what does the future hold for Afghanistan?

Well, since nothing has changed, I think it's reasonable to expect lots more of the same...

And thank God for a reliable source of cheap heroin now that it's becoming more and more dodgy to get a refill on your oxy script!
