If the lemon life hands you is “not receiving your aid,” can you still make lemonade with it?
Would it be a lemonade that is defined by its own absence?
Humanitarian agencies say peace in Afghanistan, a key battleground in combating Islamic militancy, is being undermined by a $10 billion shortfall in aid deliveries, with the United States among those failing to heed their pledges. Ninety percent of public spending in Afghanistan comes from international aid, and the shortfall could exacerbate critical security issues. . .
LOL, remember when Bush asked all the American schoolchildren to collect pennies(?) and shoes(?) for the Afghan children, back in the good ol’ days of OPERATION: ENDURING FREEDOM?
That was nice, because that’s when we learned this was to be a different kind of war.
(Not sure if that’s the correct use of “LOL.”)
