Dude, I'm from Afghanistan. Both of my parents emigrated here during the Soviet War, and I was born in the US. Your trying to tell me I don't know
about the history of my own country?
Problem. You were born in the US, making you an American, first and foremost. Your heritage is Afghani. No disrespect there. If you renounced your
US Citizenship and moved back to Afghanistan for the majority of your life, then you can say you are from Afghanistan. Otherwise, you are an
You just read a couple pages of Afghanistan's Wikipedia article and try to bring up points I WASN'T TALKING ABOUT IN THE FIRST PLACE. You
brought up the 70's and Communism era, none of which took place in the last 20 years. The only point I brought up was post-Soviet war which was
Anarchy that took place starting 1989 until the Taliban came into power.
The points I brought up are relevant to this discussion regardless if you talked about them or not. The Wikipedia article is a great summary for
other members who may not be familiar with the history of Afghanistan. And nowhere
in your previous posts have disclosed that you are "from"
Afghanistan. After completing several university senior-level projects detailing the history and economy of Afghanistan, I believe that I have good
standing on the subject, but I do not claim to be an expert. And when most people around here think of one world government, they think of 1 of 3
concepts, NWO/corporate/banking fascism, dictatorships/totalitarianism, or communism. I'm only 28, but I believe that events that happened during my
lifetime are still relevant. People have long memories.
Do you even know any Afghans? They hated communism and will continue hate communism for the rest of their lives. So it wasn't flowers and
singing brother, don't try to look at YouTube videos and Wikipedia articles and think your some kind of expert about that region because your not.
Nope. But please explain in detail why people who hated communism will welcome and accept a one world government, that chances are, has very little
cultural, political, or economical connection to that of Afghanistan.
...We learned a long time ago that human beings at the core are savages and need to be PUT IN PLACE by more educated individuals. That was the
POINT of religion and that is the POINT of government.
I am an educated (in your sense) person and I have no right to put ANYONE in their place. I'm entitled to my opinions and beliefs, which here in the
states are protected by our founding documents.
None of the # you guys think will happen will EVER happen. The only thing that will happen is that some form of a One World Government will
come soon and everybody will enjoy it. And you guys will slap yourselves for wasting so much of your time, worrying about nothing.
I'm not trying to be disrespectful here, but tell this (your entire argument) to your parents. They fled the powers that were trying to establish
this type of government and control in your "home" country. Of the 180ish (1980s) / 200ish (now) countries in the world, they choose to seek asylum
in the USA, probably for specific reasons. If they were of your opinion, they would have stayed and welcomed the Soviets or later on the Taliban.
Afterall, from the Soviet or Taliban perspective, they were trying to establish a One World Government. Eventually, the West would fall and they
would move in to impose their idea of a master government on the globe.
And I'd rather worry about the future of my livelihood and my country than go do something superficial or distracting.
