yeah, ISI... oops, i mean taliban, blew up a bridge on the khyber pass that is a major transit route for us arms and supplies to afghanistan.

and the kyrgyz told the yanks to close their air base there, as they felt they were getting practically nothing ($150m a year) for it, compared to the pakistanis getting $11 billion and counting.

both these make it harder to ship troops into afghanistan.
