Afghanistan: Swords, Rifles and Tomfoolery

What in the name of g-d are they doing?

By Gordon Duff and Kadir Mohmand

The third video turned out silent, no idea why.  Listening to the two of us jabber on is overrated anyway but what is on the video is worthwhile.  The scrapbook shown is from Kadir’s time as a Mujahideen commander in Afghanistan.  The rifles date from the 1700s.

    That’s quite the collection of cutlery. The kind of craftsmanship you don’t see this side of the world.The knife with the gold inlay must have looked very impressive when it was handed over to its owner.
    It’s a damn shame the U.S. has turned Afghanistan into a narco republic ruled by Washington’s puppets all of whom are criminals, corrupt beyond any salvation who are there to make sure the opium and heroin gets to where it needs to go. There are people in Washington who have a lot to answer for, just before they enter prison.

    a way of looking at things for sure, but one that is entirely revisionist and with that RTV/Sputnik propaganda shallowness to it

    you obviously weren’t around then
