    Am I the only one that's had enough of the blanket Afghanistan coverage?

    Suppose it's a change from Corona.

    It was mid 1990's, AFTER warlords had fought their way in Kabul and laid waste to it, they rose to prominence after buying off opposition from southern afghanistan all the way into central lands.

    It's a nice time to bury bad news. So the Government extended the deadline before UK manufacturers had to comply with the UK Kite mark.

    The EU was far from perfect but it was better than doubling the red tape for what? Warm beer in a Spoonies?

    The people on the boats coming across know that now the UK made it even harder to repatriate those who do not have rightful claims for asylum.

    This Government puts out spin and headline but when you dig into the detail its sparese or simply not there.

    Bodd is right, in time wise, however the 'mujahadeen' was composed of every tom , dick n harry that wanted the soviets out (they consisted of pushtans, tajiks, uzbeks, arabs/foreigners) AND wanted to rule over their ethnic areas, they had a varied mix of warlords that turned against each other in Kabul. They were all lumped under mujadaeen as they fought the soviets.

    One thing for sure the AAF did not want to fight for corrupt leadership often composed of former 'mujahadeen' warlords like Abdul Rashid Dostum and Noor Attah.

    He's going to have to face justice before he shuffles off this mortal coil.

  11. I doubt it - he isnt really part of the Taliban, more a security subcontractor. Their version of Blackwater.

    America had to leave, it failed in its mission to impose its values and democracy on a nation that is a graveyard for empires, a nation that cannot be tamed. This nation has its own tribal/cultural/religious ways are are extremely proud of it. The last 20 years has seen lots of innocent Afghans killed by Western/Afghan forces via drones/night raids and bombing runs, this has worked against the west the result we are now seeing. We are also seeing the metropolitan privileged classes clamouring to get out, most have left now but many are still left.

    If Pakistan gets shortened it's considered racist.

    Imagine both being shouted. The first brings an image of a racist arsehole about to beat someone up. I've never head the second being shouted at someone, but the best I can imagine is an elderly person explaining what sort of rug they want.
