GUEST,Dickey BS: Proof that Bush lied (580* d) RE: BS: Proof that Bush lied 15 Feb 07


"Osama used to work for Uncle Sam"

That's bass akwards. The US. under the Mr Peanut administration helped the Afghans defeat the Soviets [commies that LH roots for] that were trying to take over the country.

"As part of a Cold War strategy, in 1979 the United States government under President Jimmy Carter and National Security Advisor Zbigniew Brzezinski began to covertly fund and train anti-government Mujahideen forces through the Pakistani secret service agency known as Inter Services Intelligence (ISI), who were derived from discontented Muslims in the country that opposed the official atheism of the Marxist regime. In order to bolster the local Communist forces, the Soviet Unionâ€"citing the 1978 Treaty of Friendship, Cooperation and Good Neighborliness that had been signed between the two countries â€"intervened on December 24, 1979. According to media and official government sources, between 110,000 to 150,000 Soviet troops, assisted by another 100,000 or so pro-communist Afghan troops, were present in Afghanistan. The Soviet occupation resulted in a mass exodus of over 5 million Afghans that moved into refugee camps in neighboring Pakistan, Iran and other countries. More than 3 million settled in Pakistan, over a million in Iran and many others in different countries of the world. Faced with mounting international pressure and the loss of over 15,000 Soviet soldiers as a result of Mujahideen opposition forces trained by the United States, Pakistan, and other foreign governments, the Soviets withdrew ten years later, in 1989."
