Pass the brown gold opps I mean the sugar please.
Afghanistan is preparing for President Hamid Karzai to be sworn in for a second term as the country's leader.
Western officials are hoping Mr Karzai will use his inauguration speech to make commitments to reform.
Speaking in Kabul on the eve of Thursday's inauguration ceremony, US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said the country was at a "critical moment".
Mr Karzai has come under growing pressure from Western officials to tackle corruption.
The inauguration will mark the end of an election process tainted by allegations of widespread fraud.
Mrs Clinton said there was a "window of opportunity" for Mr Karzai to demonstrate he was going to improve Afghans' lives.
