Many academics appeared complacent about the ongoing bombing of Afghanistan, while others viewed it with cheerful approval.
So as to deceive the enemy, bombing and rifle fire were to be practised nightly up till 11:30 P.M., after which all activity was to cease.

Do you want something or were you curious if I'd survived the bombing after you all ditched me?
