“These are all children of war,” said Fauzia S. Assifi, 57, an Afghan civil servant who works with International Orphan Care, a non-profit out of California trying to feed, clothe and educate Afghanistan’s estimated 1.5 million war orphans.
On Thursday, we joined Assifi as she distributed boxes of hand-knitted sweaters, hats and mittens to street children around Kabul’s market centre. With the mercury hovering below minus 15 C in daylight, these children still swarmed the streets begging for morsels or change - many of them to feed their own brothers and sisters.
The kids know Assifi well, and it was a mob scene when she showed up. She handed me a pile of clothes and told me, briskly, to get to work. The children, aged anywhere from four to 14, pressed close around us, bickering and laughing as they tried on their colourful new acrylics, swapping them and fighting over the popular ones.

Here's an idea. Why don't you embrace ignorance and blame all the consequences of the war on George Bush, like a typical oaf?
Oops, you already did. It's surprising to find people on a conspiracy site that are naive enough to honestly believe that the President and Congress actually control the government.

So let's point fingers at nothing then? There is conspiracy and then there is lunacy. Who could possibly be controlling the government?
