Argh!! Today's Afghanistan Attack Against Karzai In Kabul ...

*

Shit!

It's quite possible that one of our younger brothers could have been caught up in this. He's over there - among 'foreign dignitaries'. Really.

Karzai unhurt after parade attack

At least two people have been killed and 11 were hurt in an attack on a military parade in Kabul attended by Afghan President Hamid Karzai.

Security forces whisked Mr Karzai and other dignitaries away and hundreds fled as shots rang out. Two MPs were reported to be among the wounded.

The parade was a celebration to mark 16 years since the overthrow of the country's Soviet-backed rule.

A spokesman for the Taleban said the movement had carried out the attack.

Read the rest and watch the film footage.

Then please cross your fingers for 'our kid' - and for us - that 'our kid' stays safe.

The footage has been edited/butchered to hell.

I certainly hope he's okay, Richard, and that you get positive news very soon.

What a total farce this whole Iraq/Afghanistan business has become. Bush and Blair should pay with long prison terms, but sadly they won't.

I hope all is well with your brother, Richard. And with you and the rest of your family.
