A few questions;
1) Do you have a source for your assertion that Russia has been arming the Taliban for decades?
2) Russia hasnt been in Afghanistan for nearly 30years so im not sure why youre lumping it in with America (nevermind during the Soviet occupation the force mainly consisted of central asians etc.)
3) Isnt it somewhat myopic to say the taliban 'ruined' the country? Not to mention heinously ignorant of Afghan history.
4) Since when do the Taliban have 'full control' of Afghanistan...?
ok answer 1 i meant one decade clearly mentioned 10 years lol and my sources are https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-asia-41842285 https://foreignpolicy.com/2018/04/02...ping-campaign/
answer 2 i wasnt talking ABOUT rn i meant 30 years back when this issue was really fresh https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Soviet–Afghan_War
answer 3 talking about taliban ruining the country they clearly established strict sharia law ruined afghan museums and their heritage and we all know what happend at bamiyan https://theintercept.com/2019/02/15/...talks-taliban/ atleast afghanistan wasnt that worse before them
4 they still have full control over many districts sorry for the full control dunno why i wrote that https://www.economist.com/asia/2019/...th-the-taliban

I would point out both of those sources are allegations as opposed to evidence..

Actually it was, despite the Talibans failings (and there are many) they at least brought a semblance of peace to the country unlike the warlords who perpetrated untold human rights abuses before them, who were incidentally armed by the Americans.

Why is that country such a mess? The way it was showed in Kite Runner in 70s looked like an amazing tourist spot and destination with highly liberal and secular society? Wtf happened to them now? Why is Taliban being allowed to negotiate even though they kill 100s of people each day
