Kabul... Ormiston on Afghanistanization
Next week, after ten years of preparation, Afghanistan assumes responsibility for securing several parts of the country now patrolled by NATO.
Longer term, the date Afghans really focus on is 2014 -- when most NATO forces begin to withdraw completely, and Afghanistan has to police itself.
Meantime the spring fighting season's about to rear up. The violence is expected to be worse than last year, according to the general in charge of American and NATO forces.
The CBC's newest foreign correspondent is Susan Ormiston, newsgathering now in Kabul.
