The difference between you and I is that I'll admit Western faults, You on the other hand sound like an a apologist in that maybe in your eyes the
Taliban cannot and have never done any wrong.
Firstly, no, not the Taliban, I talk about resistance.
Resistance doesn't have a name, when you give it a name, it then can easily transformed in to an evil force by the might of propaganda.
