The Taliban maintain strong support as an organization that is confronting a government it considers a Western pawn.
One person's terrorist is another's freedom fighter..
That's what I was waiting for..
Sympathy for an oppressive regime that enslaved people for decades.
I always enjoy seeing westerners who have never been to Afghanistan and seen what the Taliban actually do talk about it with such authority..
Your academic view of the situation in Afghanistan is a product of the comfortable environment by which you are able to view these struggles. Nice and
far away from the ground reality.
Who the hell are you to pass judgement on people you have never known, and assume you understand a situation you've never been a part of? Its so easy
to spout off ridiculous and ignorant "High brow" opinions from the comfort of your home.
Some of us have been there and seen what goes on first hand.
That's this woman's life. Its her home. The people in the ANA and her son, in the Security Forces, signed up to protect their homes from the Taliban.
They can't move. They can't just leave Afghanistan as you suggest.
You cannot fathom the struggle they endure every day.
