The Taliban Captures Kabul (1996)

During the chaotic period that followed the Soviet withdrawal from Afghanistan, a militia of Islamic fundamentalist students known as the Taliban became increasingly powerful. In 1996, the Taliban captured the capital city of Kabul and declared itself the legitimate government of the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan, establishing a strict Islamic regime that became a haven for extremists. Whose assassination two days before the 9/11 attacks of 2001 dealt a blow to the anti-Taliban resistance? More...

Too bad these extremists can't find something extremely positive and constructive to do.

Oh well...I guess it gives our troops somebody to annihilate!

The Lion of Panjshir – Ahmed Shah Massoud


Two days before September 11th, 2001, Ahmed Shah Massoud was assassinated by Al Qaeda in Afghanistan. This man was the most celebrated warrior and hero of Afghanistan – a true strategic genius, who outfought first the Soviets and then the Taliban who followed. It is virtually certain that the assassination of Massoud was part of the broader Al Qaeda plan for inciting the muslim masses to war against the West, of which 9-11 was the centerpiece. It’s clear that had Massoud been alive, the history of the 9-11 decade would have unfolded much differently.
It is worth noting that Massoud was a visionary, able to inspire and lead his people from within their tradition, and yet also able to articulate a future for Afghanistan as united and free. He was perhaps the only man in Afghanistan who could have played the George Washington role for his nation – imagine America’s fate had Washington been murdered by loyalists at Mount Vernon the day before the Battle of Lexington and Concord!

There are many things wrong within this world but allowing a peoples to live their lives as they desire in not one of them. Attempting to change their way of life though, is wrong.
