Over the past few days, I've been ordered on to a strict diet of my words. A stream of emails arrived from American readers with plenty of advice (get laid, get pregnant, shut your fat legs, shut up) and prognostications for my future (you'll be fired).

Victory in war breeds new ambitions. In spite of the political disarray to which the military breakthrough has led in Afghanistan, the downcast mood of only 10 days ago in Washington has been replaced by a feeling of confidence.

War breaks out in the press. The battle between the Sun and the Mirror is a wonderful absurdity - the John Pilger anti-American Mirror versus the Sun's gung-ho jingoism: yesterday a Mirror diatribe bracketed together Stalin, Hitler and Bin Laden with the Sun's editor Yelland.

Together, we evolved a harmless satire of the slightly drivelling style employed by the journalists of tourism. "Land of Contrasts" was our shorthand for it.

The armchair warriors have proved no more merciful in victory than the Northern Alliance. Yesterday's Sun gave two pages to an editorial entitled "Shame of the traitors: wrong, wrong, wrong ... the fools who said Allies faced disaster".

Past a road littered with the corpses of murdered Taliban fighters, I walked into liberated city of Kabul as dawn broke over the Hindu Kush. It seemed the entire city had turned out to greet the first Western reporters over the front line, ahead even of the victorious Northern Alliance army and only hours after the Taliban had scuttled away in the night.
