This is the Afghan misadventure in a nutshell.

“I think we all desperately hoped that British soldiers were dying for something more noble than helping Karzai’s drug dealing cousins to sell gas from northern Afghanistan to the Chinese,” one former senior diplomat to Kabul told The Daily Telegraph.

Backstory – Karzai’s notorious cousins, Rashid and Rateb Popal, won the oil extraction contract in a joint venture with a Chinese state-owned firm despite accusations another of their companies used US funds to pay protection money to Taliban commanders and despite their serving nearly nine years in jail in New York in the 1990s on drugs charges.
