Renting Afghans Cont.
Efforts to pacify Afghanistan from the outside in by carving up the militants’ external support are proceeding apace, as suggested in this space last year.
But we wonder about the critical gap in the list of those cooking the books for the upcoming London conference: what about the Uzbeks?
Their absence bodes very ill for Afghanistan – and for Uzbekistan and Tajikistan – if it isn’t temporary and suggests deeper divisions. Who has excluded the Uzbeks? Or, why have they excluded themselves?

These are urgent questions.
