And we still wait

After all this waiting the first Turkish troops arrive. As we are running roughly five months late on the promised transfer of command (first it was the Germans - who realised that this was hardly France, then the Turks - after we paid the wonga) who's going to treat this latest missive seriously:

Turkey is expected to take over command of the ISAF before the end of June. The ISAF has guaranteed security in the Afghan capital since shortly after the fall of the fundamentalist Taliban late last year.

Yeah, right. And who will be supplying troops for both offensive and peacekeeping measures for years afterwards?
