I know Afghans - several of them - a good friend of mine is Afghan (haven't seen him in a while) but I haven't heard a single Afghan say that they preferred Taliban rule. That is preposterous and insulting to even state such venom. Come on Reggie, you're better than that. You have the first name of my hero growing up. That was wrong on all levels Reg.
Oh-yeah, my ex-gf was Afghan who I went out with for nearly 2-years. Not a single Afghan I ever came up to said such a thing. They were only scared we would neglect them again like we did after the Soviet war. That was their main concern..
Yes, you're absolutely spot on.
Real Afghans like foreign occupations, Kill teams, bombs on weddings and schools. They love it, because real Afghans are secular.
The Taliban consists of fake Afghans. They're really closet Arabs. They're takfiri's being hired by Ahmadinejad.
Also RAWA are really a foreign terrorist organization.
Albert, did I ever state Afghans are not real Muslims? But the Taliban were so barbaric and cruel that life under the Taliban was basically next to hell (if there was such a thing). You think the current government in Afghanistan is "secular"?? Hell no. The Islamic Republic looks like a bunch of atheists in comparison to them. Saying this, the Afghan people suffered so much under the Taliban and to say that Afghans support them is certainly disingenuous because I know you are intelligent and there is no way you can believe that. At least young Afghan girls are now going to school and getting an education and Afghanis have a glimmer of hope for their future. How low can we go to try to say that the Afghani people were either one of two things: 1) Better off under the Taliban, 2) Prefer the Taliban.
For anyone to make that claim (especially from someone like you) is disingenuous and I do not believe for a second that you actually believe that nonsense.
There are plenty of interviews and documentaries with Afghans expressing how things were better with the Taliban. Were all things? No. But the Taliban left them alone as long as they obeyed their version of Sharia Law. Sure beats house to house searches, family dead from stray bombs or for being suspected of working with Americans, etc..
And I am sure Afghans are scared that we will neglect them again. Many women continue to wear burqas so they won't be punished if the Taliban come back. This is a valid fear as your beloved West has a long track record of such a thing.
