Yes we could


Robert Fisk's latest article is titled, Once More Fear Stalks The Streets Of Kandahar, and like a Robert Fisk article it puts you right on the ground in a warzone and gives you the names of individuals who have been made into victims of international aggression and then lays a swathe of the blame on those who manufacture the various implements of dismemberment. What struck me was the last line,

Barack Obama wants to send 7,000 more American troops to this disaster zone. Does he have the slightest idea what is going on in Afghanistan? For if he did, he would send 7,000 doctors.

Wouldn't that be a sign that change had indeed come...
