  1. Oh aye heres a good story. The story of how vlad persuaded a puppet to allow afghani nationals to have there nation back after a 20 year war on terrorism that never actually stopped the american terrorism or thirst for power and wealth. It would have been cleaner and easier if the USA hadnt have fu$%d up in Pakistan and Iran deacdes prior…. people remember "sins against the holy spirit" and many can never forgive nor forget.. on the upside losing $280 billion in armaments has to help Lockheed martin and the likes stock prices soar cough cough rolls Royce 🤣🤣 what a scam

  2. Quran 24:55

    Allah has promised those who have believed (correct imaan) among you and done righteous deeds that He will surely grant them succession [to authority] upon the earth just as He granted it to those before them and that He will surely establish for them [therein] their religion which He has preferred for them and that He will surely substitute for them, after their fear, security, [for] they worship Me, not associating anything with Me. But whoever disbelieves after that – then those are the defiantly disobedient.
    (Interpetation of the meaning)

  3. They didn't, they were allowed to do so and were left generous helpings of cash and military equipment. Don't forget we helped ISIS (whatever name they give them, same deal) topple Gadaffi who wanted to break the petrodollar system by selling oil for gold. Let's not forget that Iraq wasn't invaded until after Saddam started selling oil in exchange for euros, those were his "weapons of mass destruction". You know that nations have to first buy dollars to buy oil with right? You know how the petrodollar system is behind all of this middle east horror right? Why do our governments care about "dictators" only when there's money/resources involved, why haven't we been removing African dictators and establishing "democracy" for those people where there are child soldiers, starvations and genocides ffs? Why do people keep on eating this nonsense up that we're fed by the likes of the BBC? Does anyone think anymore or is it too much effort? :/

  4. Not everyone wants to be civilised. Savagery is a choice we must respect. Only Sadam Hussein could control Iraq. Brutalism and state terror take decades to develop a "self choice" of freedom. Let "Islam paradise" show it's people how to live. Send Islamic home to their paradise and stop telling civilised peoples of the world that their ideas belong in their societies.

  5. All please understand that most in usa are upset and ashamed by our governments plan to leave. People voted Biden for president. He is seen as weak by the Taliban and Biden proved this and continues too.
    I stopped voting after I voted for Obama thinking he would help but didn't. Saw our government for what they are. So I choose to not vote. I agree we needed to leave but the way it was done was completely insane on so many levels. But now Afghanistan is in control, mainly by the Taliban, there are alot of groups like Taliban in Afghanistan.

  6. Afghanistan was a success story in 1950s; building dams, irrigation of deserts, building infrastructure, agriculture, education, and some sort of booming middle class. In 1980s, foreign support of fundamentalist against Russia was a grave mistake and it was the beginning of the end. It's so sad to see a country once was almost a model for development is imploding and radicals once supported by US is the culprit of all problems from Afghanistan to Middle East.
