Every new emperor after him was honoured by the Senate with the wish felicior Augusto, melior Traiano that he be "luckier than Augustus and better than Trajan".
I think it is well written. Your book was not. And for a westerner trying to get a glimpse of another culture, the book does well. I think in some respects you feel Afghan cultural differences are materially different than U. I think large U. I expect if you drove miles northeast of San Francisco you would find less tolerance than you do in San Francisco — mainly because these people, for the most part, have not had the exposure to different peoples.
Same with doing business. If you have ever had an incompetent mechanic or two work on your car — when you find a really competent mechanic who charges reasonable rates we tend to go back to that mechanic. Still, I thought your book was really very good. Afghans get blown away by Pakistani death squads daily.
Every Afghan knows that there is no such thing as Taliban, they are smart enough to know that these are Pakistani ISI agents. The president and all the way down to an ordinary Afghan is very upset and perplexed as to why the Us allows this to happen.
US has declared a war on terror, they say they are in Afghanistan to eradicate terrorists, however Pakistan is allowed to train, arm and plot a mission against Afghans, Indians and Americans. Every Afghan finds this unacceptable, if terror comes from Pakistan than why is the US in Afghanistan!??
If Osama Bin Laden is sheltered in Pakistan and many other ones like him and if all the corrupt Afghan so called Taliban are in Pakistan under Pakistani protection than naturally, according to any Afghan, Pakistan should be punished and every effort must be made to bring them to a world body such as the UN.
We have not heard or seen a solid and concrete step taken by the US Govt to eliminate this issue. As a matter of fact there are many perplexing and unanswered questions. Karzai in private has repeatedly asked the US to stop the Pakistanis from murdering Afghans!
The last bombing that killed many Afghans only a month ago, I think was the last straw so to speak for Karzai patience. Or you are with them, he considers Pakistan as the Talibanwhen says you are with Taliban what he means is Pakistan!!
Do you blame him!!?? Are they in bed together for an evil hidden agenda? Is the US playing a double game!?? I ask this question every day and my 80 year old mom asks this question every day and my sister asks this question every day!
I command Karzai for having big balls to bring this up in an open forum. I am disappointed with your misinformation though.Home.
