Some of Britain's best friends are terrorists.

Nkrumah, Kenyatta, Makarios, (OK terrorists may be a little harsh for some of them - but dead civilians and soldiers accompanied their rise).
Always a "Yes Minister" quote out there ...
Bernard: And as you know the letters JB are the highest honour in the Commonwealth.

Hacker: JB?

Sir Humphrey: Jailed by the British. Gandhi, Nkrumah, Makarios, Ben Gurion, Kenyatta, Nehru, Mugabe, the list of world leaders is endless ...

Afghan political leaders who oppose the Taliban (outlawed in Russia) will soon create a council to support resistance forces, Afghan Ambassador to Tajikistan Mohammad Zahir Aghbar told a press conference on Wednesday.

"Political leaders of Afghanistan, including Marshal [Abdul Rashid] Dostum, will soon create the council supporting the National Resistance Front," the Afghan diplomat said. The envoy earlier said that he represents in Tajikistan "Afghanistan and Amrullah Saleh who serves as acting head of the state." ...

Classy (Indian media)....
The Taliban have postponed their decision to inaugurate their newly-appointed interim government of Afghanistan, which was announced on September 7, on September 11 – the 20th anniversary of terrorist attacks in the US, sources told CNN-News18.

The insurgent group is under tremendous pressure from its allies, they said.

A Taliban source told CNN News18: “We have postponed the ceremony to unknown time and date."

The acquiescence comes hours after Russia told the Doha peace negotiation team that it will not participate in the inauguration event if it is held on the 9/11 anniversary ...

I think the word I would use is "canny",


canny in British English​

(ˈkænɪ)
ADJECTIVE Word forms: -nier or -niest

1.
shrewd, esp in business; astute or wary; knowing

2. Scottish and Northeast England dialect
good or nice: used as a general term of approval

3. Scottish
lucky or fortunate

And a canny lass is not a nice one because she's a good looking one. She's a nice one, a good catch, because she's shrewd, thrifty, frugal, lucky, manages the tin well down at the market.

Karzai is canny.

There's a CNN program on tonight with Jake Tapper interviewing a few of the US generals who commanded in Afghanistan.

I think it was on at 8 and will be again at midnight EDT. (Maybe at other times this week.
