These must be really old pictures. Some of the houses have already been constructed:

Even Adobe Photoshop can't change me.

A line[Durrand line] of hatred that raised a wall between the two brothers -Hamid Karzai

For generations, the Hindus of India prayed for deliverance from "the venom of the cobra, the teeth of the tiger and the vengeance of the Afghan."

The men of Kábul and Khilj also went home; and whenever they were questioned about the Musulmáns of the Kohistán (the mountains), and how matters stood there, they said, "Don't call it Kohistán, but Afghánistán; for there is nothing there but Afgháns and disturbances." Thus it is clear that for this reason the people of the country call their home in their own language Afghánistán, and themselves Afgháns. The people of India call them Patán; but the reason for this is not known. But it occurs to me, that when, under the rule of Muhammadan sovereigns, Musulmáns first came to the city of Patná, and dwelt there, the people of India (for that reason) called them Patáns—but God knows!

-Ferishta, 1560–1620

well its only possible now because of the karzai families shady business practices, but as long as it keeps the money in afghanistan.


There are people today who think that admitting God’s absolute greatness decreases the value and importance of humans in the creation, as if God and mankind are rivals competing in greatness and power. Meanwhile I feel that whenever our perception of God’s greatness increases, with it we become greater, because we are the creation of a great God.

i guess that was the smaller first phase, you can see it on google earth. the kandahar imagery is a couple years old but its still worth a look.

Afghans always have their priorities wrong. sigh..
afghans have got not ther priorities wrong , but they have no leaders concernd

about their people , their country and their personal aim and ambition towards

life and their place in history .

they care more about burmese internal conflicts , about the jews and palestine ,

about wahabis telling them this and that and wether whose aqida is right or wrong .

and last but not least , their own pocket .
