Today Taliban Controls more than 50% of Afghanistan

According to the Guardian, six years after the US celebrated the quick "Victory" in Afghanistan.

Today, Taliban is gaining control over 50% of Afghan land, "It is no longer a question of Will Taliban gain control Kabul? It's just a matter of when and how!"

You can check the Arabic version here on Aljazeera.net

I wonder when we will see this report on Iraq, two years... three... and what's next? The road from Afghanistan to Jerusalem might be shorter than we think... but there is a hurdle along the way... One day there will be a confrontation, when? and which side will we stand against?

The problem is that our memory is very weak. People who read History learn alot of lessons out of it.
Another thing, 50 years or 100 years in the history of mankind is nothing.
A third thing, What majority of people agrees upon is not necessarily the right thing.

Anon.

Now they don't.... but if you've read the speech delivered by Mowalla Mohammad Omar when he was appointed Amir...

U will note some interesting things, long before the US striked Afghanistan...

Anyway, thats not what I meant when I said the road might be shorter... I was thinking of the day when the US walks out of Iraq and what kind of stability effect this will have on Jordan and eventually Palastine...
