Afghani Truths?

There are a lot of Afghanis around London. Small shop owners, Street stall holders, and Taxi drivers. I sense a devout loyalty to their nation.

.
Perhaps a paraphrased quote from Layla Anwar (see side bar) is appropo: “When my country is under occupation of course I am nationalistic”.

.
So here are some paraphrased things that different Afghanis have said to me:

.
“Afghanistan is the 51st US state, everywhere in the country the US dollar is used.”

.
“There is no country that wants the US to succeed, not Russia, China, Iran or Pakistan.”

.
“The country is so poor the people often have no food, so how is it possible that so many weapons are available all the time and everywhere?”

.
“On the first day of the US assault 8,500 Taliban fighters were killed, how can you expect the Taliban to forgive?”

The Russians have long said with confidence that the war cannot be won, many others already say it is lost, and all the talk of including the Taliban in the Government reeks of defeat.

.
And there is the strange hyped up offensive against urban Marjah which turns out to be farms spread out over a large area.
