Say what you want about the war in Afghanistan from the human perspective, but I can assure you that the Afghanistan dog community is totally pro-American. Maybe they're having a peace jirga themselves, at some kennel in Kandahar.[From a regular column on war dogs at ricks.foreignpolicy.com]Ricks has had a guest blogger post about dogs in past and present wars. Always interesting stuff. Apparently, American soldiers attract strays no matter where they do. Of course, other dogs are bred and trained to assist the troops, such as mine detection.
Anyhow, it is an interesting regular contribution about another dimension of past and present conflict.
