Boulder JLF, day two

I attended the festival again. I had the terlit-hobo do the updates in that book thread.

To circle back to that last talk, on Dalrymple's Return of a King, I could not help but compare the British debacle in Afghanistan with the Jaysh al-Fana' in then-called Zabulistan. So, between the two, I came up with a handy chart of when not to invade Afghanistan:

  • In winter,
  • Any other time of the year.

I hope that this chart proves useful to future adventurers in that land.
