A view of ‘peace building’ in Afghanistan

‘Captain Cat’ has been updating a blog in an attempt to "document some of what goes on under the label of peace building" in Afghanistan.

There are plenty of interesting insights in the Captain’s dispatches and the blog is well worth latching on to, if you haven’t already.

Here are a couple of recent posts by way of introduction:

1. "Oh, that’s nice": The Captain receives an email from the Taliban. 

2. "Fear and Loathing in Loya Paktia": On Special Forces, a jirga meeting in Gardez, and the ISAF representative.
