Personally we should secretly support both groups and let them wipe each other out then wipe out whoever is left standing.......... The Taliban is bad but ISIS is more radical.
So Sunni has nothing to do with the argument then?Yes. I know but their culture is unique to Afghanistan. They say they are descended from the tribe of Benjamin. Israel backs them.
Why did you create the distinction?ISIS is Iraqi Sunni.
Which one was able to get the better CIA contract ?If ISIS is the bad guys why are they waging war against terrorists in Afghanistan? Shouldn't they be aligned with the Taliban?
The Taliban are finding it’s much more difficult being the governing authority of Afghanistan than it was waging an insurgency campaign.nypost.com
As usual you are naive when it comes to real world situations. We supported the Taliban and Al Qaeda against the Russians before we attacked the Taliban and Al Qaeda, we supported Sadam against Iran before we attacked Iraq. The Muslims have been fighting each other for hundreds of years and have been quite happy to take our assistance in the hope that they could use it against us at a latter date. The Muslim concept of peace is to build up their forces to attack their enemies again from a stronger position. ISIS for one has as it's ultimate goal a world wide Caliphate under their rule. Sure we could temporarily support them and they would gladly take our support and if they win will make the Taliban look like a benevolent, peace loving organization in comparison.It does not happen, these are fairy tales. The US right (except Trumpster jesters) has always supported the anti-Taliban insurgents.
If ISIS is opposed to the Taliban, then they are supported by the right and rejected by the left.
This is just confirmed by the fact that the United States fought against ISIS in Syria, these were the times of the left. It began in 2011, under Obama, shortly before the coup in Ukraine.
Not only naive but completely clueless........ Who do you think was fighting against the Russians when they occupied Afghanistan? The Borneo natives?When did the US support the Taliban and Al-Qaeda? Do you have facts?
Russia has never fought against the Taliban and Al-Qaeda
Never said or implied it continued after the Russians left Afghanistan. Also, a bit of a correction on my part, both the Taliban and Al Qaeda were in their infancy during the Russian occupation.yes----that was the thing against Russia----but
I do not recall any specific support of Al Qaeda
once the Russians left Afghanistan
You have nothing to "correct" what you said - a lie.Never said or implied it continued after the Russians left Afghanistan. Also, a bit of a correction on my part, both the Taliban and Al Qaeda were in their infancy during the Russian occupation.
nope----the "TALIBAN" existed as a bunch ofNonsense. The Taliban didn't exist then. The United States in the 80s supported the anti-Taliban Northern Alliance.
