Bismillah. We returned to the UK last night from Afghanistan, praise God: a day in Kabul + a week in Helmand (Lashkar Gah & Nad Ali). FCO PBM delegation. Over 30 years of war have blighted the country: the fighting needs to end. Neither ISAF / GIROA nor the Taliban can win militarily. National reconciliation + reintegration of insurgents + shura/democracy + elimination of corruption would seem to be the only solution. God help ’em!

It was great to return to Afghan, 20 years after our 3-man JIMAS delegation with the Arab mujahedin in Kunar, 1990.

I hope to blog more about both visits in due course, God-willing.
