It's Coming: Three Very Stressful Days Ahead
The US gave Afghanistan three days to turn over Bin Laden.
Although he is a murderous terrorist to the Americans, Afghanistan feels deep gratitute towards this man, helping in their efforts to chase out the Russian military years ago. They see him as a hero. Like school kids, they're willing to take a punishment before they turn over their friend. They simply aren't going to do it. The Taliban merely theatens to retaliate against any nation that helps the US.
Having had relatives fight in the Gulf War, the consequences of these events are fresh in my mind. It will affect us, our economy, our friends and relatives who leave, not knowing when they'll return. I don't want another young person returning with a weird illness or emotional breakdown! I do not want another Tim Mc Veigh rising from this conflict, either!
So... It is time to stay together and comfort each other again. Some scary days are closely ahead of us and we may need to comfort each other all over, and comfort those who are scared about next week. I'd like to start this thread to help soothe upcoming anxieties about what we have no control over, while we struggle to retain some normalcy in our lives.
