Opinion | Here’s what the media got completely wrong on Afghanistan
The war in Afghanistan was far, far different from how it has been depicted in American media.
Well worth the read.
“So really, you had a one-sided war in those years, between 2001 and 2004, where the U.S. was fighting an enemy that didn't exist, and innocent people were the ones who were suffering. That really is what created the Taliban's resurgence. The Taliban wasn't a popular force in 2001, but in these communities, people saw the Taliban as a lesser of two evils to the violence perpetuated by the U.S. and by the U.S. proxies.”Posted on 2021-09-02T07:25:39+0000
