Comments on: Afghanistan of the 50s-60s http://englishrussia.com/2011/07/21/the-afghanistan-of-the-50s-60s/ Daily selected things from Russia and ex USSR countries. Published In English. Tue, 19 Sep 2017 20:08:38 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.0.1 By: EestiUks http://englishrussia.com/2011/07/21/the-afghanistan-of-the-50s-60s/#comment-9646616 Thu, 03 Sep 2015 12:59:30 +0000 http://englishrussia.com/?p=60639#comment-9646616 I love it how Gagarin insists that the culture being shown is Soviet. Yet in the first photo is we see the album Porgy and Bess, presumably the version by the well known Russian composer Gerschwinsky. We also see all words rendered in the Roman alphabet, not the Cyrillic one – no CTEREO, just STEREO. Russia-lovers may well actually be stupid enough that they don’t just believe their own lies, but apparently expect others to believe them too. Exactly as stupid as religious types. And USA-lovers. *All of which* have fucked up Afghanistan.

It has put that country back into the dark ages. I think the USA-Israel alliance wants to do the same wrt Iran. Iran now is a pretty refined country, very pleasant and cultured people. I.e., it is a very civilized country, better than the USA by far.

“…Afghanistan destroyed due to free woman calture…”. Absurd.

See, Islam has nothing to do with the habits of the people who happen to follow it.

Habits like warmongering and yes, enslavement of women. Your culture is either very afraid of women, or your men are extremely insecure.

If you read the Hadiths you cannot failt to notice how much sense they make because unlike the Bible it is not translated from Hebrew to Greek to Latin to English/French/German etc. The issue with muslim countries is greed, short sightedness, a lack of any coherent strategy and no infrastructure beyond baying at the moon. The Bible and the Torah were blue prints for selective breeding and founding of an improved culture where better families bred better members of society. Maybe if we come back in another 400 years muslim countries willbe quite different. Who knows?

As US lost interest, the Paka kept supporting the Taliban until 2001. The rise of the Taliban has to do more with US interest first, using Pakistan to route out succesfully the soviets and later secular warlords who fought them. Spin all you want. The US government created a monster that hit home tragically. If you don’t like it, is your problem only. By spinning, you can’t change it.

They drove out an invading army and a bankrupt soviet ideology. The fact of the matter is the Taliban was only one faction of the Mujeheddin. Also, Pakistan actively supported the Taliban (and still does) to a point where they were able to take power. So truly the rise of the Taliban has more to do with Pakistani support than anything the US did. Once Russia lost and was driven from Afghanistan with it’s tail between it’s legs, America lost interest in Afghanistan.

Afghanistan wasn’t the hopeless medieval land it is now. The pics were made when the USSR helped (before the brutal soviet invasion in response to US backed religious nonsense guerrillas who where about to take power before, in the 70’s). They did eventually, after many deaths. And the US got its pipelines. The rest is History. These pics are now sad and unvelievable. And telling.

Those who didn’t die fighting or didn’t escape, gave up everything for some sense of security (or mere survivial) amongst destruction. In Afghanistan, the so called clerics won. Get it? They destroyed the brains of the society. They still rule. They have the guns. You accept it or your surviving daughter dies. You’re unfair. The Afhgans have fought and died for decades against the crazed mullahs. And the now starving afghans will be left alone again with those monsters… or a puppet corrupt government.

You are right in what you say. However, at some point the people need to stand up for them selves. The problem in afghanistan is you have a stone age society that actually prefers to live that way. They don’t want to embrace modern ideas or behaviors. They want their women subjugated. They want to live by Sharia law. They like to see executions. They want to live with family and clan tribalism dictating their live.

The US has 10 years there, and before that, the US financed and armed the same crazy islamists while destroying what the soviets left… And then these maniacs attacked you. It’s very OK to fight back and finally crush your Frankenstein. It seems you only learned to read in the last couple of years. I hope you were sarcastic.

The war didn’t force women and men to segregate. The war didn’t force men to treat women like cattle.
This sort of thing is caused by the lack of freedom and in this case, the oppressive cult of islam.

I don´t understand, however, why do you refer to “Western music” or “Western clothes”. The persons on the photos seen to be dressed as Russians in nthe 60`s. Music and clothes that comes from the West of Atlantic has always been garbage.

Before and after the destructive Soviet invasion; the latter US supported Pakistan intervention with US supported Taliban fanatics in the 90’s, that later turned against… you know the rest. Actual Russia and the US have responsibilities that both want to downplay and “forget”. The Afghans won’t.

Traditional dress and customs are important but there are somethings about the modern World which shouldn’t be shunned, like health care and education for all, yes, including women and girls.
