<< Now you are saying in was the US who caused the USSR to invade Afghanistan? >>
Zbigniew Brzezinski: "Regret what? That secret operation [the CIA backing of Islamic Fundamentalist Terrorists] was an excellent idea. It had the effect of drawing the Russians into the Afghan trap and you want me to regret it?"
Zbigniew Brzezinski: "What is most important to the history of the world? The Taliban or the collapse of the Soviet empire? Some stirred-up Moslems or the liberation of Central Europe and the end of the cold war?" Quoting Zbigniew Brzezinski Jan, 1998*This interview was deleted from the version of Le Nouvel Observateur sent to the US) [this translation into English by Blum]
From 1977 to 1981, Zbigniew Brzezinski was National Security Advisor to the President of the United States.
<< You leftists are ...blah blah blah>> << If Communists drag stone age peoples into modern times, it's progressive, if Capitalist countries do the same, it's imperialistic. >>
Look, you were wrong. The Afghanis were making progress under their governments at the time. Are you totally detached from reality? The US wasn't bring modernity, THE US WAS SUPPORTING THE FUNDAMENTALIST AGENDA THAT BIN LADEN SHARES!! THe US was supporting fundamentalist terrorists. You can bury your head in the sand if you want but it doesn't change the facts.
<< That tells me a lot comrade. The good old USSR was just responding to our evil intentions, never having harmed a fly without the provocation of the "evil Americans." >>
Look, the overall effects of the Afghani government at that time were incredibly positive. Can you dispute the info I posted? No. So then you make an ass out of yourself by calling me "comrade"
The Afghanis had so many positive advancements under that government (did you read the info or not?). The CIA backed Islamic Fundamentalist Terrorists with the goal of drawing the Russians into the "Afghan trap".
How nuts are you that you can't admit that yes THIS WAS EVIL TO DO!!
<< By the way, Carter was president 1976-1980, so most of what happened before 1980 was the responsibility of a Democratic regime, not Reagan >>
SO WHAT? Is this supposed to be some great revelation? Carter and Reagan were both corrupt. (I know, the idea that BOTH the Democrats and Republicans can be corrupt blows your little mind. I guess I am supposed to pick one of them then irrationally makes excuses for them right?)
Carter's NSA Brzezinski was a sick bastard. AND look at Reagan, he called these Fundamentalist Terrorists "freedom fighters"!! These terrorists were attacking the best chance the Afghanis ever had AND THE US WAS SUPPORTING THEM! Obviously you don't give a damn what was done to the Afghanis but I would think that after 9/11 you would get some sense of the evil we did to the Afghanis after the same kind of Fundamentalist Terrorists we inflicted on the Afghanis attacked us on 9/11. What the hell does it take for you to wake up?
