OH DEAR – Have we jinxed Afghanistan by talking about it in class?

Like so often is the case, we talk about something in class and that day or 24 hours later, it suddenly finds itself in the news. Nelson Mandela’s death, large earthquakes, abortion stories, ISIS spreading their power and Russia playing a more major role, the power of the UN, malaria tablets for the British military… all strangely occurring after a chat in class.

Well now we have the respective peace in Afghanistan being put under pressure with the Taliban taking control of the northern city of Kunduz. The BBC are reporting that Kunduz which is in a strategic location for transport around northern Afghanistan is currently experiencing fierce fighting between the Taliban and government forces trying to win it back.
