This is coolbert:

Some Afghan miscellany that might surprise!

"miscellany: n. A collection of various items, parts, or ingredients, especially one composed of diverse literary works."

First from the Internet web site

1. "That’s $300 million dollars per day". USD $.

"In the 20 years since September 11, 2001, the United States has spent more than $2 trillion on the war in Afghanistan"

In American parlance a thousand billion is a trillion!! "A billion here, a billion there, and pretty soon you're talking real money".

2. "Afghan commandos could fight for British Army like Gurkhas"

Askari [Afghan soldiers that fought with the British] their special forces commando units, an elite, and as evacuated from Afghan to be incorporated into the British Army?

"Afghan special forces personnel could become a new regiment of the Army akin to the Gurkhas under proposals put forward to ministers"

Elite troops trained and experienced and continuing to be organized and fighting as Askari can be a great asset to the British? Probably so.
