    I hope in South Asia may be a really will to improve the atmosphere and to strike a balance (political of course).

  • Does anyone have an idea what might be triggering this fairly recent outbreak of conciliatory talk? Might it be a sign that confessionalist politicians and religious extremists on both sides are beginning to weaken (or indeed have already been weakening for some time)? And if so, is there anything the US can do to advance these developments – and partic. in ways that might redound to the benefit of Afghanistan? Or, rather, are we safe in assuming that susceptibility to nudges or pressure of any kind from the US is an automatic kiss of death for any domestic politician in these countries?

    Just asking. I can’t say I know much about the exploitability of crises. But GOOD news of any kind – and all the more so in this volatile yet pivotal part of the world – seems like a terrible thing for bright US minds to waste.
