Kabul – Afghan officials are urging women in journalism who appear on TV to don “head scarves and wear less make-up”, possibly at the suggestion of the radical Taliban.
Afghan and U.S. officials have been desperately seeking peace negotiations with the radical Islamist group who it has been fighting for well over a decade. The Taliban is responsible for killing thousands of American soldiers in insurgent type attacks.
The war in Afghanistan proved to be one of the biggest military defeat in American military history…The Taliban managed to beat the most powerful military on earth through attrition and waging a guerilla style hit and run attacks. It also allied with Pakistan which provided a safe haven for the Taliban and other vicious terrorist groups such as al-Qaida and the notorious Haqqani network.
AMERICA’S LOST WAR
The US lost the war from the start by refusing to cut off the primary funding source of the Taliban which was opium production. Despite the fact that the Taliban was violating the laws of Quran by engaging in the production and distribution of drugs, it also violated sacred laws by embracing suicide and murder of innocent people.
WHO ARE THE TALIBAN
The Taliban, alternative spelling Taleban, (ṭālibān, meaning “students” in Pashto) is an Islamist militant and political group that ruled major parts of Afghanistan and its capital, Kabul, as the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan from September 1996 until October 2001.
It gained diplomatic recognition from only three states: Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, and the United Arab Emirates, 3 countries, who oddly enough are allied with the United States and who are considered by some to be major funders of Islamic terrorism.
The main leader of the Taliban movement is Mullah Mohammed Omar – Kandahar is considered the birthplace of the Taliban.
While in power, they enforced one of the strictest interpretations of Sharia law ever seen in the Muslim world. An interpretation supported by the dictatorship in Saudi Arabia who official religion is based on a radical and toxic form of Islam called “Wahabbism”…
The Taliban, recently forced the United States to withdraw forces, spends hundreds of billions of dollars on rebuilding and expensive projects, pay extortion money not to attack and release dangerous prisoners from America’s secret prison base at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.
In addition, Al Qaeda also supported the Taliban with regiments of imported fighters from Arab countries and Central Asia. Saudi Arabia provided financial support. The Taliban and their allies committed massacres against Afghan civilians, denied UN food supplies to 160,000 starving civilians and conducted a policy of scorched earth burning vast areas of fertile land and destroying tens of thousands of homes during their rule from 1996-2001. Hundreds of thousands of people were forced to flee to United Front-controlled territory, Pakistan and Iran.
“The Taliban wages a successful military campaign to defeat the American military on its own terms, at one point the US was paying farmers to grow opium”, says Jill Rodgers of Charlotte, N.C.
Rodgers was referring to media reports now famous on Youtube representing American idiotic foreign and military policy decisions in Afghanistan, which many people blame for losing the war in Afghanistan. Proving that we were our own worst enemy in Afghanistan (see: US Military Helps Terrorist’s Grow Heroin – US Funding Taliban http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ElEciFI0Pew , see also U.S. Soldiers Grow Opium/Heroin Poppy in Afghanistan http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KXTZKlnL0U0&feature=related ).
