You are taking all this in, slowly; photographing the scene, and then snapping from some distance a monumental but still semi-destroyed Darul Aman Palace. And so it goes. Tall concrete walls are scarring, fragmenting the city. In Kabul, almost anything worth protecting is now fenced. Some partitions and barriers are simply enormous, almost unreal. There are walls sheltering all foreign embassies and government buildings, palaces, military bases, police stations and banks, as well as the United Nations compounds, even most of the private schools and hotels. The Hamid Karzai international airport is encompassed by perimeters that could put to shame most of the Cold War lines: from the parking area one has to walk almost one kilometer to the entrance of the international terminal, with luggage and through the countless security checks. Of course Western institutions and organizations have the most impressive fences, as well as the Afghan military and military bases and government offices.

That is, apart from home foreclosures and urban blight from shuttered factories and stores, complete with divorce and broken families, if not alcoholism and drug addiction. An ironic twist occurred with the Gay Kenyan and his recent eight years squatting in the White House. The legions of Obama supporters were on public assistance, like welfare and food stamps. They clamored for their darling even though he did not do jack shit for the black community, whose members in the business community came to dislike him, even to hate him, surely to disrespect him. In typical broken societies and ruptured nations, the jobless take up pitchforks and attack the palace. The Storming of the Bastille still reverberates in memories. But this does not happen in the United States, where they lift a darling champion to be a golf and fund raiser champion, peppered by gay sex parties in the Lincoln room.

ABIDJAN: Flying Crystal Palace winger Wilfried Zaha looks set to make his Ivory Coast debut after he was named in their final 23-man squad for the Africa Cup of Nations on Wednesday. The 24-year-old is among several Premier League stars included by coach Michel Dussuyer for the Jan 14 - Feb 5 tournament in Gabon, where the Ivory Coast are defending champions and among the favourites to retain their crown. Dussuyer last week named a 24-man provisional squad and it is defender Ousmane Viera, who plays in Turkey, who misses out. England manager Gareth Southgate had urged Zaha, who was born in Abidjan but appeared in two friendlies for England under former boss Roy Hodgson, to stick with the country where he grew up. But the former Manchester United man ignored that and now looks set to play a major part in Gabon after pledging his allegiance to the Ivory Coast in November.
