Thread Name: OBIT: Taliban--Gen. Franco (similarities!?)
Subject: RE: OBIT: Taliban--Gen. Franco (similarities!?)
Art, this has allways been the problem with represive regimes and dictators, the taliban were brave freedom fighters when fighting against the Russian invaders, Tito was a hero of the west fighting the Germans, The US and UK sent aid to both.
It is so easy to see ones mistakes after the event.
I only hope that in aiding the Northen Alliance we are not ridding Afghanistan of one dictatorship in order to put another in its place.
