I’m often angry. Afghanistan’s been at war decades and American ally continues to kill many civilians. Last week in eastern Kunar province drone blew up four women and four children in addition to three alleged terrorists. Afghans wail when this happens and demand I evict Americans. I’d like to. I want high-tech killers out.
I also want Taliban to stop striking all over country, and especially want them to stop destroying people in or near Kabul. Last week they car-bombed intelligence offices twenty-five miles from presidential seat, killing several and wounding eighty. They strike where they want, but Americans still should not call this civil war and announce I don’t have control. I have control and will keep it long as drone-firing allies are here.
