the counterinsurgency campaign in the Taliban-controlled parts ofAfghanistan should be part of a larger political undertaking, ratherthan a predominantly military one;He wants to engage with receptive elements of the Taliban arguingthat the Taliban are not a global revolutionary or terroristmovement, they do not directly threaten the West. But they dohostal Qaeda who is a threat.
“By the way,” says Brennan, with a smile, “we have no gangs here.”
Given that many Pakistanis may prefer a Taliban-controlled Afghanistanto a secular Afghanistan that leans toward Pakistans archival, India,the United States needs to assuage Pakistans security concerns inorder to gain its full cooperation in the campaign against theirreconcilable elements of the Taliban.
Any advice would be welcomed………………………………..
Hi Simon, I have just read your blog from the Stockholm 100km – very impressive performance. I will turn 50 next year and have completed two Marathons a few years ago (Berlin and Stockholm). Do you think it is too short time to start training now for next years 100 km in Stockholm? My first goal with that would be just to finish, my second target is to have 2 x the winning time (so nice and “easy” pace…).
If I will complete a Marathon in May/June around 4 hours, do you Think that would be enough to run the Ultra at around 13 hours?
Wish you good legspeed velocity all the time
Sorry – completely missed your post so didn’t respond! If you haven’t given up on me answering then here it is 😉 I would say you would have no trouble running a 100km under 13 hrs if you can manage a marathon in 4hrs. Obviously you still need to put in some 100km specific training but a 4hr marathon definitely means you have enough speed.
After the rather short VLM ´13 – what´s the next target?
Hi Steve, firstly I would like to say how truly inspirational your story is!
There is so much to gain from reading about your accomplishments with running. Your dedication and hard work set a fine example to all runners.
