Soviet rule wasn't all that bad except for the hundreds of thousands of refugees who fled to Pakistan to survive the slaughter. You are here supporting the Soviet slaughter of innocent Afghanis and America is still the bad guy. geezzz Not even sure why I bother responding to you.
Who were they escaping from exactly, Soviets or the Muj? Many people who didn't like the idea of Taliban fashion for the ladies ran because of US supported Muj.

We're not perfect man. Give us a fucking break, we were trying to help people who were in dire circumstances. I guess no good intentions go unpunished or unwhined about by Europeans.

It's amazing that the rest of the world thinks of this region as a stand-alone nation, with oh so well defined borders!

Afghanistan has known nothing but conflict, poverty & suffering for well over half a century. It is one of the world's poorest & least developed countries, who's population has been traumatised by continuous armed conflict. Over 20% of it's 26 million population are currently living in refugee camps along the border areas. After the Soviet withdrawal Afghanistan had the world's largest population of child Orphans. Countless thousands were crippled by cluster bombs & land mines that had been left behind by the Russians


A truly phenomenally obscene amount of money has been spent on killing & maiming Afghans, destroying their homes & further fragmenting the tribal population. If just a fraction of the trillions of dollars had instead been spent on developement, health & education projects to bring Afghanistan into the modern world, it could have been so much different. But there's no corporate profit in civil aid, It's absolutely criminal what the US & NATO has done to Afghanistan & it's people.
Yeah...damn us for building hospitals, schools, improving education and literacy, birth rates, giving women back their role in society and so on. Despite the war effort, we've done more for the Afghan people than the Taliban or the Pakistanis or the Saudis or the Iranians or any of the other nations surrounding them COMBINED.

Truly criminal.

It was truly criminal of us to remove their elected government....err wait...I mean the government that took control through bloodshed, violence, intimidation, and terror and was harboring and training terrorists that were carrying out attacks on a global level.

Truly criminal.

Shades of "Pentagon Papers"

So, are we going to do to BHO as we did to RMN!

I doubt it!

The press won't allow it!
