the taliban must be running out of friends. too declare all aid workers as spies is a bit on the funky. they probably realise that everyone they rely on is selling them down the creek.
you would assume it would be the same for any journo's or media.
wasn't their talk of the US offering them support or something.

If thats the case then why bother helping someone who isn't pepared to help themselves.
That community know they need help yet when those 'incharge' say things like this nonsense then the community should say enough is enough, we want you out and someone who appreciates the help in charge instead.
But oh no, they sit back and wait till it gets too much then bleat on about how the world has treated them so bad.
Leave them be . Its no wonder no one actually likes them anymore when they have complete donuts in charge.

Mind you I remember the time the Taliban AND the US were incahoots against the Russians back in the 70's and 80's.
Funny old world aint it?

well the taliban ain't actually in charge. they want to be but that's why everyone is over there kicking their butt holes.
they are a messed up bunch who don't believe women should be educated hate technology and all they wackjobber stuff.
afghanistan has been torn by war for so long now there is no leading government. just a bunch of fools who think they make the rules.
very primitive.

It's because, in order for them to gain control over the country, they must keep the people down and starving, etc... So actually, they don't WANT aid to the people of Afghanastan.
