No, the comment engine for subscribers, too, is 1500 chars. The strategy then is to break it up into two comments that can stand on their own.
PS: I broke your comment into 2 parts, and tried posting them.
The Swede dude has also chimed in.
Well what Mr. Daudzai is saying is nothing new. Everyone knows who the spoiler in the region is, everyone knows which is the country whose only contribution in the region is instability, and that it negotiates financial and military aid on the basis of its ability to create that instability. And yet that aid is given. The price may be paid by Afghanistan, which has the misfortune of living with such a neighbour as Pakistan. But Afghanistan is not very rich. America is. Europe is. China is, and India is. Good luck in the years ahead dealing with this nuclear armed, radical Islamic State in the Indian Subcontinent (the next ISIS).
And the Paper of Record has had it with the comments, giving the Scandinavian-african lobby the last word.
