Left On Afghanistan’s Plains Part V




It’s obvious – or should be at any rate – that no insurgency can possibly survive for 20 years without a substantial amount of support from the local population. In which case, obviously, the question one should ask, but which for some reason almost nobody is asking, is why the population should support said insurgency. Nothing I said in this strip is made up, by the way; under the Amerikastani Empire’s “freedom and democracy”, this is how the ordinary Afghans, outside the westernised “Kabulbubble” urban elite, were treated.

As I said last cartoon, I will carry on with the preplanned series of stories even though events have somewhat, shall we say, overtaken them.
