#3 With relationships btwn the U.S. and Pakistan in the ditch, there appears to be an uptick in car bombings. Probably little more than a coincidence.

I don't recall seeing any mention of the specific 'types' of explosives. Military grade explosives might still be a bit difficult to obtain. One might assume Home Made Explosives (HME) components imported from one of Pakistan's twelve or so giant fertilizer factories could be the source.

#5 Now 95 dead, about 163 wounded. The BBC is doing a good job keeping up with the updates from Kabul. And I’m sure that map is particularly useful to those Rantburgers who have been there.

If by 'negotiating', you mean hunt them for sport and piss on their corpses, then most definitely!

Rantburg was assembled from recycled algorithms in the United States of America. No trees were destroyed in the production of this weblog. We did hurt some, though. Sorry.
