Don't Mess With Afghanistan

[G/J/g]P had Dreyfus and me over for a yummy dinner last night. After dinner, we dove into a game of Risk. JP thoroughly crushed GP and me from the start, but to end the game she had to take my one lonely troop in Afghanistan. I forget the exact numbers, but as I recall, my troop was facing seven troops from India plus five more from the Middle East. After defeating all but one troop in India, he defeated three of the five troops in the Middle East. He came *this close* to surviving the entire onslaught. The lesson? In Risk, as in Real Life... Don't mess with Afghanistan. Those fellas know how to put up a fight.
