Meanwhile, back in Afghanistan
sigh, sigh, sigh...
from al jazeera...
The Afghan president is in Washington DC for high level talks, but back in Afghanistan a deadly airstrike has once again killed scores of civilians.
The local governor of a small community in Western Afghanistan claims that more than 100 civilians have been killed in a US led airstrike.
The Red Cross confirmed the attack, saying its representatives have seen dozens of bodies.
in some ways, being back here in argentina, i feel like i'm a million miles away from the intensity of being in afghanistan... even though being there rapidly devolves into a day-to-day routine just like everywhere else, the background intensity is always there... when i go to sleep at night, i can hear the guards below my window clearing their rifles, and that's also the first thing i hear when i wake up in the morning... it's also a bit more immediate when i think that things like this are going on not very far away... however, now that i'm back in buenos aires and read of this kind of atrocity, the distance doesn't seem like much of a buffer...
