  • the man in the end is Ahmad Shah Massoud.
    was a great man for opposing the taliban in afghanistan, thats why he was also assasinated by taliban 2 days before september 11 attacks in america.

  • In case anyone's wondering, the voice in French says: "In 1995 Massoud's men were firing on the western suburbs of Kabul, where (these?) Talibans were attempting to progress."

  • Massoud was actually a real good guy who wanted to build schools and allow girls to attend. He was a great Afghani Leader, For the people and for tolerance.

    So...the Taliban assassinated him the day before 9-1-01.

      Your absolutely full of shit, Massoud and the Northern Alliance were just as bad as the Taliban. Read War at the Top of the World by Eric Margolis. Margolis was in Afghanistan during the Soviet-Afghan war.

      The Northern Alliance beat their women and were thieving raping warlords.

      Massoud is looked at in a better light because he was educated and fraternized with the French

      You are correct. His reputation was made by French dreamers who traveled to Afghanistan during the soviet occupation. He was a moderate compared to other warlord but still did not allow his wife to leave the house. He was also one of the major players during the chaos following the fall of the communist regime in Kabul.

    • @Catalytic Margolis is also a 9-11 "truther"
      and had his own agenda when he wrote that book, Besides the fact that you equate Massaud with other Warlords personal deficiencies points to your own agenda.
      Many of those Warlords went on to become Talibani chiefs as well, opposing Massaud.

    • @Tabestan The fact that he feared for his wife's safety in that region seems judicious in my opinion. The Chaos in Kabul would have occurred with or without his intervention. A majority of the Chaos occurred because of the Taliban and a puppet communist government.

      The Panshir valley was safe for a few years once he signed a truce with the soviet.

      The communist regime fell in 92 and that's when the civil war started. Mainly between Massoud, Dostum and Hekmatyar (US puppet). The taliban took over the country in 94 as a result of that mess and of course support from Pakistan.

      well, but it can not be denied that back then they kicked the ass of one of the worlds strongest armies (USSR). And in contrast to the Vietcong they didnt even need a jungle for that.

    • @Simba1 One of the world's LARGEST armies, full of 18 yr old conscripts. If the USSR had taken the gloves off, Afghanistan would be uninhabitable now.

      i disagree, Russia pulled out because they deemed the land would not be profitable anymore for their Base. and a nation with new emerging threat would mean they have to move westward.

  • Calm down haters.
    These are not fucking taliban or islamists. The guy says they are Massoud's (look it up in wikipedia) people firing rockets at taliban trying to take over west-Kabul in 1995.
    Also, they helped the coalition against the taliban in 2001.

  • the funny part is, the terrorist groups have yet to be defeated. sure, they've lost some battles.. but, it seems they have won every war. the russians couldn't take them out and neither could america WITH a bunch of allies. very interesting how they keep using half assed war tactics, and come out winning. no, this is not a... "i support terrorist" thing, i just find it interesting how the 70's and 80's combat gear kicks the ass of high tech, or supposedly so, gear.

  • Wish Massoud was still around, course they couldn't allow him to be friends with the US so they killed him.
