The NYT reports this morning about Tony Blair’s visit (his first!) to Kabul. He made a stop to check in with British troops in the chaotic southern province of Helmand, and came out with this pronouncement:
“Here, in this extraordinary piece of desert, is where the future of world security in the early 21st century is going to be played out,” he told troops at Camp Bastion, the main British base in Helmand.
Not that you’d know it by the policies of leaders like Bush and Blair.
