You know Athos, it is sad if you think you are actually thinking. What is wrong with people like you? Can you dispute a single fact? Can you attempt to discuss any point raised? What the hell are you so afraid of? What kind of a rebuttal do you think you wrote? I fear for this country if there are many people like you. Make an effort will you?
Did you know that the US was supporting the Mujahideen six months before the Soviet troops moved into Afghanistan? Are you too young to remember that we have been told that our government responded to the Soviet intervention? Doesn't it make you THINK for a minute when you learn that this is not the case and that the government actually provoked the invasion by supporting these terrorists? What did you think the Mujahideen were doing? They were murdering progressive Muslims, they were killing Muslims who would never launch an attack on the US. And the US was helping them carry out these horrors on people that wanted progress. We helped them do this to Muslims who were happy with modernity and were happy with sending girls to school.
Did you make an effort to read what former US National Security Adviser Zbigniew Brzezinski said? Do you even understand what you are reading? what is the deal with your dopey quips, are you so frightened that you refuse to think?
Zbigniew Brzezinski was asked about the our support of the Mujahadeen. Brzezinski said, "Yes. According to the official version of history, CIA aid to the Mujahadeen began during 1980, that is to say, after the Soviet army invaded Afghanistan, 24 Dec 1979. But the reality, closely guarded until now, is completely otherwise: Indeed, it was July 3, 1979 that President Carter signed the first directive for secret aid to the opponents of the pro-Soviet regime in Kabul." -Brzezinski
No Soviet troops in the country and the US is helping these terrorists attack the best government the Afghanis ever had. We helped the fundamentalist extremists take over the country and destroy the women rights, the modernity and the progress, "... the cost being measured entirely in non-American deaths and suffering, as the rebels regularly exploded car bombs and sent rockets smashing into residential areas of Kabul, and destroyed government-built schools and clinics and murdered literacy teachers (just as the US-backed Nicaraguan contras had been doing on the other side of the world, and for the same reason: these were symbols of governmental benevolence)." afghan Doesn't that make you think at all?
