Afghanistan Timetable?

Maybe the massive opposition to the Afghan occupation is getting through-

Gordon Brown tonight raised the prospect of agreeing a timetable for international withdrawal from Afghanistan, in a speech in which he claimed that almost half of al-Qaida’s leadership had now been killed. Brown said he hoped a UN- sponsored London conference in the new year would set a timetable for a transition to Afghan security forces taking charge of their own country.

Delivering the traditional prime minister’s foreign policy speech at the Lord Mayor’s banquet in the City of London, Brown said the damage already inflicted on al-Qaida gave international forces the chance to set a timetable for pulling out.

    God help the women who have been, at least a little empowered under this sequence of events. With the Talibans return absurd islam will rear its ugly head. Glad I’m not an Afghan woman.

    I think our problem is perspective, to the elite things probably look very different and in the end if something goes badly all it means for them is they are slightly less rich.
