Kabul Nightlife: News feeds

Tuesday, December 26, 2006

About the only thing that keeps me "entertained" at night here, is the diversity of news feeds that I receive from the different news agencies operating out of Kabul. This weeks number one:


Islamabad, Dec 20 (ANI): The Taliban militia have fixed 2010 as the deadline for the complete takeover of Afghanistan from the Hamid Karzai government.

According to officials, the Taliban are making a strong comeback, launching an average of 600 attacks against the US, NATO and Afghan troops every month.

"Currently, they are focusing on country's south and once it comes totally under the control, the former ruling militia will turn the guns towards the other parts of country. They now have 2010 in their mind as deadline to reoccupy the Afghan lands that they lost after the United States attacked Afghanistan in pursuit of al- Qaeda," The Nation quoted a source as saying.

According to officials, over 50000 diehard Taliban fighters have now fully regrouped under the leadership of Mulla Mohammad Omar and taking on US, NATO and Afghan forces almost everywhere in the southern provinces.
