    Actually, I don't know any details just heard it on the radio, off to find a link to get more info in a minute.

    I'm not sure if it truly was an attempt on Karzai, but a bomb went off in Kabul killing at least 10. If this was an attempt on Karzai, what does it say about US nation building? I think that that this is certainly something that deserves examination, especially in the context of a potential US-led regime change in Iraq.

    It says it takes longer than ten months to build a nation.

    no doubt. of course there will be assasination attempts...there are some people that are against karzai and his administration and in a somewhat lawless country crap like this is going to happen...hence he has us and british special forces guarding him at all times...

    True. But has that country ever accepted any form of centralized government?

    I'm afraid it's going to take a miracle.
