Just a quick post to point people towards this post at the English blog Lenin's Tomb, which tackles the question "Who are the insurgents in Afghanistan?" It takes a look at the political landscape in Afghanistan, including touching on the Taliban and non-Taliban opposition to the occupation and the almost equally unpleasant figures that Canadian youth are over there killing and dying to support. I still feel I need a lot more depth on this question, but this post provides a useful sketch for those of us wishing to get beyond the usual simplistic "white hats vs. black hats" framing in the dominant media.
