It seems pointless at times

Today, in Kabul, a kid rode his bicycle up next to a bus full of Afghan citizens and detonated a very large explosive attached to himself. As far as I know, 10 citizens dead and dozens wounded.

They have resorted to killing each other now. This isn't anything new though. Two months ago, shortly after we arrived in country, two busses detonated in downtown Kabul killing several dozen citizens. The attack on the convoy near the embassy in Kabul killed 20 citizens, a hundred wounded. It seem so pointless and hopeless at times.

The attacks on American and coalition convoys has decreases lately, thankfully. The south is still wild with daily rocket and mortar attacks, but nothing significant in our AO here. Al-Jezeera reported that the Taliban destroyed two tanks in Kabul recently. However, I find that hard to believe since, like Sgt Dub, I haven't seen any tanks in or near Kabul since we've been here. Maybe we're just blind.

On a lighter note, my boobies are smaller.

My time at the gym and running at the track has paid off somewhat. My legs are getting stronger and my boobies are getting smaller. What more can I ask for? The remedial PT has been stopped for now. I'm not sure why but it has. That means I get to sleep in on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday mornings, but that also means that I have to find the intestinal fortitude to go to the gym. It's not really all that hard since I just think about how good I want to look for Ann when I get home and magically my shoes are on.

Can you believe it's already October 10th, about to be the 11th? This month is flying by and I am not complaining one bit. I am ready to get it over because that means I can start working on the next month.

Well, its about 2330 here so I do believe that it is time for me to get to bed and wake up to another beautiful...well, another day here in Afghanistan. Have fun back at home everyone but remember to stay safe.

God is good. All the time.
