BAGHDAD — An al-Qaida in Iraq front group claimed responsibility Thursday for an unusual attack more typical of the Taliban in Afghanistan — a commando-style assault in which suicide bombers wearing military uniforms stormed the Central Bank during rush hour in Baghdad.

I guess they want Taliban and Al-Qaeda to be in the same page because they are loosing legitimacy of the Afghan war, and the resistance is becoming more and more legitimate in the eyes of the Afghan population.

I think you have to remember that the Afghans have much more experience in fighting empires than the Iraqis.

That being said it is a good idea that Iraqi resistance do follow the Afghan resistance's footsteps, after all it was the Afghan resistance which toppled the USSR.

The Taliban was financed by Uncle Sam to fight off the Russians.
Iraq was also financed by Uncle Sam.

Uncle Sam = Bad Guy

Finance != control. (America doesn't control the resistance)

Afghan resistance != Taliban. (It isn't just the Taliban who are fighting)

The point is that even though the finance came from Uncle Sam, it came later, when the resistance gained momentum, at the beginning of the resistance there was no assistance from Uncle Sam.

The assistance came from all over Muslim world.


If you meet Afghans, at least elders you will hear true conspiracies, this Website will be put under the radar.

The Afghans are well aware of the dealings which goes on behind the curtains.

They have been in many conflicts, that gives them the experience, that experience is something very precious, you can't gain that wisdom from universities.

That is why they call Afghanistan the "grave yard of empires".

The idea that the Taliban were trained and financed by the CIA is actually a common myth same goes for Al’ Qaeda (as we know it today). The thing is the CIA through Pakistani ISI and with the help for the British trained the afghan Mujahedeen to fight the soviets. Once they won all the westerners pulled out, this led to allot of civil unrest with in Afghanistan with different warlords fighting for control. The Taliban were formed in Pakistan after the soviets pulled out, with the support of Pakistani ISI the started a bloody campaign in Afghanistan to take control of the lawless state, they achieved this in the mind 1990’s. The idea that the Taliban were trained by the CIA is wrong, yes some of their members may have been trained with CIA support however not the Taliban as an organization. In truth however most of the early Taliban were Pakistani fighters and most of the Mujahedeen that the “CIA” trained went off to become the rivals of the Taliban fighting them throughout the 1990’s.

As for Al’ Qaeda, they only existed during the Soviet war as a stopover point for fighters and to keep a register of those fighters, it was not until 1993/4 that they became the terrorist organisation we saw pre 9/11. Most of their fighters were trained in the Al’ Qaeda training camps set up in Afghanistan, which had became a sort of Mecca for would be Islamic terrorists the world over, these people were not trained by the CIA or financed by them. There is some evidence to suggest that Bin Laden may have received some training form the CIA but only as a fighter in Afghanistan and not some super secret agent. It is also apparent that they trained some of the tactics taught to them in the 1980’s in these camps however this was after the west withdrew support.

And Al’ Qaeda was a british computer database...
