The second part of "the Horrors of Afghanistan" isn't so scary and depressive as the previous one... Or are we just used to it?
really great article, thanx for sharing = )
Take away the wrecked russian military vehicles and the military check points and it is like any other dirt poor country.
Great series showing us the real Afghanistan! 100 times more valuable than all the mainstream news source propaganda.
After the veiled women of Afganistan, seeing the pretty unveiled girls of Tazhikistan is a relief.
Is their idea of porn just women without scraves? Because on our porn magazines, there are actually naked women and men.
It is a shame that so many young Russian and American died in this awful place. For what?
The women of this “snake pit of a country” need to flee North to Russian freedom and let the troglodytes kill and rape each other till there’s only beetles and flies left.
Out of the pot and in to the fire?
Russia used to build bridges, big electric plants, a lot of afghan people came to moscow to study engeneering. No drugs, no taliban.
What did USA? Nothing.
They look after their pipelines with oil. Introduced an former american as president. no democratic elections, but a lot of lies, pverty, crime and war!
Comrade Nur Muhammed Taraki tried to save this feudal land through progressive Socialism. Neo-Stalinists (including Brezhnev) had him killed.
What a waste.
“In Tajikistan, it’s forbidden to smoke in public places.”
So see the master of the second plane. ^_^
What about the horrors in Abu-Ghuraib?
American lesbians tortured there the Afghan people.
What about civil people in Guantanamo?
What about children in Guantanaomo?
What about the killing Squad in the US-Army, who killed children for fun?
check your facts, you can find more information on the web!
Hey Historian… Abu Ghuraib is in Iraq. Get your propaganda straight.
The lesbian division was posted in Kuwait that time so they are innocent.
Guantanamo is really a Sandals resort.
The death squad are Johova Witnesses.
Wow you can cut and paste…. congrats
Easy to cast stones. Obviously you have no nothing but hate for America with your war crimes comment. America has nothing to apologise for. Any individuals that broke thwe law (including the abu grahib asses)were justly punished. Civilians were injured and killed. That is war. Unfortunate things happen. Ask the Chechens and the Georgians how they feel.
Afghanistan….welcome to Hell.
“Children tear some grass.” No, they are planting rice.
These are amazing photos! The photographer should work for national geographic!

A roadmap with the road you took (places you ‘ve been) would had completed the album
funny to see the policeman who was charged to destroy the opium plants to take a breath from opium on his cigarette.
And this could happen during the cold war,when the 2 giants were waving their fists at each other and their fingers were ready to push a button?Good comment Scott.
the one of the little Afghan tajiki girl is beautiful…may we use that for our Afghan community newsletters please?
This is really depressing to see. I hoped that by this time in our civilization, this poverty would be only a memory. It makes me grateful to be born in the USA. I think any person in America who is suicidal, depressed, or unhappy with the USA should see this.
Up to the 80s-90s poppy production was negligible, but when the Taliban came to power the country became one of the largest producers of heroin.#
