Play the Afghan Game

11:45 AM -- Harpers shares a dozen or so moves from “ 'The Road to Peace,' a board game designed by the United Nations for ten- to twelve-year-old children in Afghanistan. Since July 2005 they have printed and distributed around 10,000 copies in Dari and Pashto." Here's a couple:
    Although some in your community have succumbed to growing poppies, your father has resisted this illegal practice. Move two squares forward.

    You almost stepped in a minefield. Go back one square and pay more attention next time.

re: Play the Afghan Game One out of every six children in Afghanistan dies before their fifth birthday, chronic malnourishment runs rampant and girls are forced into arranged marriages. A board game ought to solve all those problems. Nice work, UN.

re: Play the Afghan Game Ah, the UN. That wonderful place where the diplomutts fiddle and the world burns...

Oil For Food
The Sudan
Iraq post Gulf War
Where everything is Israel's fault
Where Iran can build nukes and no one does anything
Peace Keepers (what a joke!!!)

Why is it that the left in the US keeps complaining that we don't work with them?
