Description: In September 2001, a few weeks before the fi rst bombs were dropped on Kabul, I was sitting in a small nongovernmental or ga ni za tion (NGO) offi ce in Paris, watching on my computer screen news releases announcing the formation of a co ali tion of Western nations preparing to launch a war against a country that few people had paid much attention to before. For many Westerners, Af ghan i stan kindled fantasies of deserted landscapes, bearded tribal warriors, and burkas.
