    Default Ailing American woman missing in Afghanistan with Canadian husband

    These two sound like dumb naive hippies. Too sad for the baby.

    While there are a lot of NGOs working in and around Afghanistan, many without either the help or the protection of US/Allied forces, to me it seems like these love doves just took a random flight from Russia into no-mans land, expecting to be do-gooders. And if so, dear lord are they pinning for a Darwin Award.

    Morons. Do these people just assume "Afghanistan can't be as bad as they say?" I would have feared for my life every second of every day in that country if it wasn't for the fact that I was well trained, armed, and armored. And surrounded at any given time by no fewer than nine or ten friends who were just as trained, armed, and armored.

    I'm guessing some ****ers dobbed them in getting on a bus/taxi or they got yanked at a random bad guy road stop.

    The only person I pity is the unborn kid.

    Even without getting pinched by bad guys, a heavily pregnant women without ANY 1st world medical support in a country with some of the worst indigenous OBGYM/Midwifery infrastructure in the world is asking for a horror movie ending to the story.

    She drinks the wrong poo water, breathes in the wrong poo dust, eats the wrong russian roulette yogurt and her baby is dead....in the middle of an Afghan winter.

    The circuit they were doing is high on the list of adventurers who want to take in the mountains and the dramatic scenery. Such people when entering Afghanistan generally just stick to going around the Wakhan, which is considered to be a safe (relative term) area in Afghanistan.

    But these people were absolute idiots to do this when the lady was pregnant. I totally agree with what Flagg said and I feel sorry for the child.

    James Coleman said in general, they preferred small villages and communities because they felt safer there than in big cities,
    In Afghanistan? Where the word of the tribal honchos is life or death? I spent a lot of time with the local leadership in our sector......and our little mini-Jurgas made the Cantina Scene in Star Wars look like the Rotary Club.

    Not very clever to go "helping people" you are likely to be a burden on.

    Default The plot thickens

    The Toronto Star reported in this morning's print edition that the missing man, Joshua Boyle, was once married to Zaynab Khadr.

    Khadr is a member of the infamous "Khadr clan", the charming terrorist sympathising and supporting family, the remnants of which still reside in Canada and take advantage of our generous social programmes, while despising us as a morally corrupted country.

    If Boyle is still a fan of the Khadrs and their ilk, he's welcome to stay in Afghanistan.

    Wow......at best a naive, "useful idiot".

    At worst?

    I didn't know about the Khadr family........that's nuts.
