In many cases we are forced to stand a good way from the frontline for our own safety, or if we are on the frontline, we can't stay there for long... unmanned remote control drones fitted with high definition gyroscopic cameras will change the role of the war reporter.

Timothy Fadek calls himself a "news junkie" but he's really a photojournalist, one of the best. On this topic, he's modest. He chuckles knowingly as I try to prize his global ranking from him. "I'm not telling you", he laughs. "I'm not in the top 1%, but I am in the top fifty".

There is one area of frequent enquiry that streams my way, where I feel that I am not ideally qualified to comment. Doctors in Afghanistan are at best soothsayers, at worse fraudsters.

All of my friends here come from far-flung places, a broader horizon that dispenses the notion that your own place of birth is best. Each fizzes your blood with unique cultural facets, we are simply part of something bigger.

Martin Middlebrook

I think I may have been living in a war zone for too long, and it is taking its toll.

War pays I can tell you. Kabul is a building site and the construction industry is booming off the back of reconstruction.
