Myrna’s Lentil Curry Soup

Myrna’s Lentil Curry Soup

Large onion small dice

1 red bell pepper small dice

3 sticks celery small dice

About a cup of carrot small dice

Some parsley chopped

3 Green onions thinly sliced

4 cloves garlic minced

5 cups very good chicken broth (if using canned use low sodium and reduce by 1/2 before measuring)

2 inches fresh ginger grated

1 tsp black pepper

1 tsp turmeric

1 tsp coriander

1 tsp dry ginger

1 Tablespoon cumin

1 tsp Madras curry

1/4 teaspoon ground cloves.

Put all of the ingredients in a heavy pot. Bring to a boil. Simmer for 30 minutes. Do not overcook the lentils.

Adjust salt and curry. Madras curry is spicy hot. So add a little at a time. Use sea salt.

Easy. Do not sauté the onion as this will tend to make the soup too sweet. Just put everything in a pot and cook for 30 minutes.

Serve with a dollop of your favorite yogurt.

Mediator: Bannon Ready for #War With a Long List of Targets

NYT

And, finally, Axios reported, the list potentially included Fox News, should Mr. Bannon move to create Breitbart Television with the financial support of a backer like Robert Mercer.The conventional wisdom conveyed in the breathless news coverage of Mr. Bannon’s exit was that he would be far more powerful outside the White House than he was within it — a dangerous proposition for both Mr. Trump’s opponents and surviving aides.If true, it would mean that a post atop Breitbart News could rival a senior position in the most powerful office. And, given that Breitbart became its most aggressive self — with an appeal to at least some who consider themselves white nationalists — under Mr. Bannon, the rest of us may be in for an even wilder ride.Lost in some of the hype related to Mr

Afghan Forces Are Praised, Despite Still Relying Heavily on U.S. Help

NYT

The country’s current number of 21,000 special operations troops, while set to grow soon, account for only 7 percent of the Afghan National Defense and Security Forces. But they do from 70 percent to 80 percent of the actual fighting.The bulk of the Afghan military and police forces are still well below the readiness and ability levels that American and NATO war planners hoped they would have reached when they began training the country’s security forces in 2002.As President Trump prepares to announce his Afghanistan strategy, American and Afghan military officials appear to believe the plan will resemble what the Pentagon would like to see: authorization of 3,900 more American troops who would be used to continue to help train, advise and assist the hugely challenged Afghan security forces.That number, American and NATO officials said, would likely be supplemented by a few hundred additional advisers and trainers from NATO and other countries that have contributed to the American-led war effort here.If Mr. Trump does not grant the Pentagon’s request for a more robust American troop level, there is concern that the Afghan forces may not be able to even maintain the current stalemate, causing the country’s security situation to backslide further, and that Kabul, the capital, could come under more high-visibility attacks.Even if the extra numbers do come through, military officials acknowledged that Afghanistan’s security forces were nowhere close to being able to defend the country on their own or to keep it from returning to its former status as a launching pad for terrorist attacks abroad.A resurgent Taliban, which by American estimates controls more than 40 percent of the population centers of Helmand Province in the south, continues to bedevil the beleaguered Afghan security forces, while the Islamic State has taken root in Nangarhar Province in the east.Newsletter Sign UpContinue reading the main storyThank you for subscribing.An error has occurred.

Trump Settles on Afghan Strategy Expected to Raise Troop Levels

NYT

American military commanders have argued during the monthslong policy assessment that the additional troops would enable the United States to reverse gains made by the Taliban and militant groups like the Islamic State’s Afghan affiliate, the Islamic State in Khorasan.Administration aides, under orders to let Mr. Trump announce the details, hinted that any American commitment to increase force levels would require steps by the Afghans, like doing more to fight corruption.Mr. Trump’s Monday evening speech will be his first nationally televised prime-time address since he spoke before Congress in January and follows a week of controversy over his reaction to the racially charged violence in Charlottesville, Va.When it comes to Afghanistan, Mr. Trump entered office as the skeptic in chief, and any ramped-up engagement there poses political risks for the president, who rallied voters weary of war with his sharp criticisms of American involvement in the country.“We should have a speedy withdrawal. Why should we keep wasting our money — rebuild the U.S.!” Mr. Trump tweeted about Afghanistan in January 2013, as he considered running for office in 2016.The Afghanistan question has been the source of a long-running debate at the White House, Stephen K

Large-scale war games are set to begin on Monday. The joint exercises conducted twice a year by U.S. and South Korean troops are intended as preparation for a possible attack by North Korea, which said the drills this month were “kicking up war zeal.” Above, a military exercise in Pohang, South Korea, in April. With President Trump and North Korea’s leader, Kim Jong-un, recently trading threats of nuclear war, some are asking whether the exercises could be used as a bargaining chip to persuade the North to freeze its weapons program. Residents of Seoul, the South Korean capital, which is firmly within range of North Korean artillery, are largely unshaken by the threat, our correspondent reports.
