Band of Brothers

BAND OF BROTHERS The last band of old active war dogs left over from the Russian and first Taliban war; Amir Ismail Khan, claims say he has signed over to the Taliban, but, now said to have left the country into Iran. Gen. Abdul Rashid Dostum believed to be in Turkey (Feeling poorly) after yet another recent assassination attempt on him returning to Kabul. Hamid Karzai ex- President of Afghanistan, still there, but, do the Afghans really want him back in power Ahmed Shah Massoud deceased, but, his ghost may well rise again. And; last but, not least Gulbaddin Hekmatyar (Snake in the grass). Add on; but no War dog, Abdullah Abdullah (Just a political slurp).
BAND OF BROTHERS
Old dogs laid to rest
For Afghans what is now best
Here comes the re-set
Hekmatyar is still lurking
Sides with Taliban
Karzai and the Abdullah
Opinions ignored
Blinkers off Afghanistan
Taliban are here to stay

It is not "love" that hankers for such men: It is "fear"! ~ Regards // paul
