Welcome to Waziristan

A fascinating journey to the rugged area of Pakistan known as Waziristan. Journalist Declan Walsh discovers the search for Osama Bin Laden, wild predications of capturing the al-Qaeda leader and growing resentment at the behaviour of the American forces.

"Everyone is angry with the Americans," says Niaz Muhammad, a timber merchant whose house was blasted by five rockets. "When they fight, they say it is for peace. When we fight, we are terrorists."

Thanks for this link. I am glad you have your finger on the pulse of the region. I'm using you as my main resource now. :)

God, no pressure!
I'm trying to keep up-to-date with all the latest from the region, but as ever, there's far too much and I'm writing to a book deadline!

Heh. I thought you were working exclusively as my eyes and ears. :P

I have just finished reading your chapter in Not Happy John. I will have to convince dirtbikeoption to send me a copy of your book when it is released.

Hope you liked my chapter in NHJ.
My book will be out in May 2006, though I'm sure if you're reading this blog you'll know about it!
I hope that you'll read my new book and see the Israel/Palestine conflict in a rather different way than before...
