“Ha ha ha to the pacifists”, wrote Christopher Hitchens in November, as Kabul fell to the combined might of U.S. bombers, the Northern Alliance, and the BBC’s ‘Simpson of Kabul’. A month later, the victory celebrations continue tirelessly (almost manically), as the “first virtual war” draws to a close.
