When will it end? When will the world leaders stop playing dress up and actually deliver what whey promise to deliver? I have stayed at the Serena in my last 2 visits and I have gone through the airport security many times in Kabul. I have seen the security officers taking bribe equivalent to $4.00 to let some one pass their bag inspection without even showing the bag!!! but it is NOT ALL JOKES!!! PEOPLE DIE! And until enough people die, they won't stop to take matters seriously. Or perhaps until someone close to them die, they won't take things seriously. My friends Mark and Danilo both with the love of Afghanistan in their heart were at the Serena today. Thank God they were both unharmed. I had breakfast there on Thursday with my cousins and took 2 meetings there before my departure. Today, I have been walking like a zombie after a long trip to Afghanistan and this news just shattered me. Of course I make light jokes in my blog to ease the tension my friends and family feels when I'm there but the truth of the matter is that I keep looking over my shoulder for the possibility of something happening and I'm constantly in fight or flight mode when I'm there. It is ENOUGH!!! WAR, OPIUM = MONEY!!! And lots of it. I cannot even wrap my mind around it and it is the handful greedy people with very strong blood ties to the governments benefit from this. When are we going to stop and think for even a minute that this can end up hurting us at our own homes and not just "them". It is the poor and the common people that get hurt until they reach a boiling point to hurt the rest. It is the guard that dies at the Serena not some high official from the states or Europe. And why should anyone get hurt, why should anyone die just to line up some greedy fuck's pockets with more money. Where is God in this... I know people make their own destiny but come on! Enough is enough!!!
