Afghanistan: It's what's for dinner. (side dishes include Iran and Pakistan)
This is my first official foray into the blogosphere. As the tagline states, this space will be addressing all things Afghanistan, with the occasional sprinkling of Iran and Pakistan. It will probably take a bit of time for me to find my so called ‘groove’, but bear with me while I work out the kinks.
I feel it is important to be upfront about a few things: I’m not Afghan. I’ve never been to Afghanistan. I’ve never been to the Middle East. I’ve never served in the US government (or any other government for that matter) nor have I served in the military. My knowledge on Afghanistan comes mostly from books, other blogs, my twitter feed and the news cycle. I will not attempt to paint myself as an ‘expert’ on anything, and am open to discussion, rebuttals and disagreements on any opinions I espouse in this space.
Thanks and happy reading!
