Americans crossing the road

Write a comment Here's a true story hot from Kabul. I just spoke to a friend of mine on skype, a friend who works with the foreign contingent in Kabul. She was in a taxi in fairly heavy traffic in the middle of Kabul when suddenly some heavily-armed foreign soldiers sprang out from the sidewalk and into the traffic - two levelled their guns at the cars in the road and held up their hands to stop the traffic; another two switched and darted from side to side overtaking them, then the first two moved round and across, keeping their guns levelled and ready to fire in any direction. My friend was alarmed asked her taxi driver "what the hell's happening? Is it an attack? Is there a bomb? Are there some Taleban?" The driver just smiled and said "Don't worry, Miss. It's just some Americans crossing the road".
