I realised some time ago that it was impossible to write about Afghanistan without writing about Pakistan and other neighbouring countries. With that in mind, the reader will come across articles that, while not specifically about Afghanistan, in some way shed light on the conflict.
Who's tweeting on or from Afghanistan? I had a quick look this morning and came up with the following list. Some I already follow, others look interesting: artafghanistan has 94 followers; afghanbuddies (73); AfghanistanNews ((16,757); US forces in Afghanistan usfora (4386); Afghanistandocu (1284); Revolutionary Association of Women of Afghanistan RAWA77 (152); British Army MediaOps (1811); AfghanNews (3982); USEmbassyKabul (449). Any more suggestions?
