I mean, I would suppose that's why Helen Clarke (former Prime Minister of New Zealand) feels it's a moral imperative to bring democracy to the people of Afghanistan -- rather than bringing democracy to the people of New Zealand.

I couldn't tell if the people of Afghanistan were begging to be on the repatriation flights... Or if they were shaking their fists at them on their way out.

I wonder about the people who are being processed as 'refugees' from there. I wonder what their ties are etc. If it is the women and children dependents of the soldiers... Or what... Quite what is going on with that.

I would imagine those with the best cases are those who the soldiers were happy to flee from. They might well have families back home...

I don't know. I imagine it is more about that than about carpenters and cleaners.

I would also imagine that getting a bunch of Afghanistan women and children out...


I keep thinking about how it's in the news all the time about some 'school' of girls being taken hostage by armed men in South America. Nigeria or wherever. For a ransom to be paid by their parents for their return to the school, apparently.

Why would the parents send their kids to those kinds of schools? It doesn't make any sense at all...

When they say women of age 10 cannot go to 'school' anymore... I wonder what kinds of schools they had in mind.

Hard to know.

We don't have schools anymore.

We don't grade the work anymore.

Not by international standards. It's what keeps our GDP so low.
