#1 actually Karzai govt has had control for a while of 3 or 4 provinces surrounding Kabul, and has taken control of Bamiyan and Paktia provinces. BBC, critizing the German move as too little, now says that Konduz is relatively safe and stable. Well gee, why didnt you tell us that earlier, Beeb? Haven heard much from Jalalabad lately, is that now under Karzai control as well?

#2 All power flows from the UN. Feel the rays of hope spreading from a UN resolution. Now we can have progress.

#3 Ah, this is appropriately called Center of the Universe Syndrome™...
"All goodness and light flows outward from here - and here is wherever [insert entity, such as the UN] happens to be."

Oh yeah, sure sounds like the UN to meeeee.

#4 Germans,who have this "thing" about using their troops abroad, weren't willing to go beyond Kabul without UN approval.
