We all pretty much know that before too long, things are really going to pick up over there. I'd like to find a link to a good map of Afganistan and it's major/minor cities (stonepiles?) that also shows the surrounding countries - something I can refer to when I hear news updates on the radio at work, or at home. Somebody here has to have already found one. Can anybody help?

I'd like to find one of these also. I thought I saw someone with a political vector map of Afghanistan, but I did a search for it and can't find it.

I'm betting good quality topo maps of Afghanistan will become collectors items, and bring pretty good prices. [}:D] Soon to be - Elevation 30' BELOW sea level - EVERYWHERE!!!!!!!!!
