The present afghan govt is struggling to satisfy "its allies" (?) or its own citizens "that it can combat its own corruption" let alone the 'tribalism and religious fundamentalism' that "infest" the country...(and) now questions the wisdom of risking another new zealanders life to maintain "a corrupt and ineffective regime" 'in kabul'.The underlying situation 'in the afghan' is more akin to a civil war , involving warlords and complex tribal structures.

If you buy that you probably think all the sunni's, shia's and kurds are not all iraqis first and foremost.You probably believe the sunni's or the shia's have more in common with their neighbours in iran than with eachother.

Do you condone violence now?

No its not condoning it.I am against individual violence like Tim Selwyn Editor of the mighty tumeke blog smashing an axe through the electorate window of the left.Just like Tony Blair and new labour perhaps?

But if there is a historical moment that demands real change involving revolution or civil disobedience or political struggle, I am with this.

Al Qaeda (and the muslim brotherhood) is an organisation of loosely tied affiliates including wikileaks who seek to make a response to the unjust british and american 'coalition' policy towards the islamic world.

This crusade has happened before and they are just defending their countries not yours and their societies not yours and their identities not yours and their culture not yours and their civilisation not yours.

Jim Flynn of Otago Uni couldn't help but mention (he hadn't read the weekend herald saturday not the herald on sunday/newstalk zb columnists) his next book.After the 200 books he recommends students read rather than studying and a close approximation to the number of mostly new some ex-library withdrawn books for sale around 20 cents a magazine and 50 cents a book.Anyway, its to be called the end of the patriotic era from truman to obama and it argues that ever since vietnam at least a few americans have become immune to automatic patriotism and have become increasingly sceptical of america and are now post-america people who expect the u.s to exhibit a higher standard than parochial interests like the economy and that that is a good thing as no one should trust a great power or the only super-power to automatically claim the obeisance of their citizens.

Actually, if you read the cables you'll find the Iranian threat has been continually understated in public and the entire Arab world has got the shits over the Iranian nuclear programme - even Damascus is getting antsy. Gleamed so far, the US has been doing its utmost to avoid conflict.

Then again, never let the facts get in the way of a good whine about Amurka, eh?
