Read about Hamid Gul.
Hamid Gul had absolutely nothing to do with the Taliban. The Taliban rose to power in response to the crimes and disorder that was a result of the civil war. Taliban did not formally exist during the war against the Soviets.
Their initial act was delivering brutal justice to a child rapist. do you think that was a made up story?
Your meaning to say that Afghans ( who have ruled modern day India and Pakistan) are incapable of civil movements?
Pakistan has a hand in it? Really? Do you think this incompetent state of Pakistan also has a hand in Occupy Wall street, and the Islamic spring in the Middle East?
All Pakistan, UAE, and Saudi Arabia did was recognize that a new government had come to power.
India , instead of doing that, continued to back the Northern Alliance, and create ethnic strife. How come Northern Alliance was unable to rule Afghanistan?
