Afghan 101 Chapters
The following is from a few books I've read.

Afghan Toilet Sign!
Book 1: Ridley, Yvonne: In the Hands of the Taliban
British reporter goes to Afg without visa or passport in Sep 01
& is captured by Taliban
by doing stupid things & not being careful. She tries to be
Islamic Value of Women in Afghanistan!
burka-clad Afghan women give the impression of servility, the
Kama were strong, spirited & resilient. One woman
mocked when she asked
if I had any children & I said 'one'.
her hands on a fine pair of child-bearing hips she mocked: 'only
You British & American women can only produce one or two children
but I can have 15,
& when you run out of your boy soldiers to send to war we
will have many replacements.
Our children are born with guns in their hands. They are fighters
& will die fighting. It is
part of our life & our struggle. If I have to fight I will
& so will she,' she said, pointing
her long, bony fingers at an old woman whose tiny, crumpled frame
& toothless smile
radiated great wisdom.
was told she was 100 years old & that she had seen many wars.
She shouted something
at me & everyone laughed. She had said of course she would
fight the American soldiers
& said no one could conquer the Afghan people.
Most of the adult men had drifted off but the young translator
continued to talk & he
admitted sadly, 'here is nothing for me here & we are all
very poor. It is difficult to
escape from this poverty & follow my ambitions. Very few of
us can afford to have
threw me a succulent corn on the cob & roared with laughter
because I squealed &
dropped it, it was so hot. One again she made a mocking gesture
& told the onlookers
that women from the West were soft. I could tell her by her gesture.
To me this is a very telling story on how stupid the gaav/olaaq
in Miran & Afghan are.
1- The culture creates stupid pig headed domineering bullies, men
will use any means to dominate others, men or women.
3- It's beyond me how a female gaav could laugh at a British journalist,
but there u have
it. But this is how women in Miran/Afg are brought up to 'think'.
Even though women
have been brutally repressed by Men/Islam, they raise their profiles
by bragging about
how many gaav/olaaq they could give birth to & treating like
shit any woman who could
not do it. Their whole history is full of women being extremely
cruel to their havu or
4- The idiots have been fighting each other for centuries, killing
& raping one another.
Their rulers & war lords have been on British pay rolls for
decades, yet they claim to be
unbeatable fighters, carrying guns from childhood. What's the
point of carrying guns &
living in refugee camps by millions of starving gaav/olaaq, who
are fanatic idiots without
any proper education, who don't even trust their own people to
go back to their own
country, coz their own 'Muslim brothers' will kill & rape
a 100 year old toothless woman, who doesn't have enough to eat
will use an
opportunity to shout & make herself look important, if given
half a chance.
This is Y the Taliban or KK Khomeini never gave the gaav/olaaq
6- They r too stupid to know that it was USA who beat the Soviets,
not the Afghans.
Without the money & arms from US, Afghans couldn't do a damn
thing. Even with it
they destroyed their own country & killed & raped their
own people, coz they were
too stupid to see the big picture & care about their own country
were not defeated by the gaav/olaaq. They knew that the Afghans
too savage to be governable, so decided that Afg was not worth
the trouble, so paid the
Afghan rulers & warlords & used Afghanistan as a buffer
zone to protect their real
precious jewel: India.
8- But they are not even united by their stupidity & qurur &
EGO. Many of the educated
ones know how bad things are. Many of them have been paid by this
or that country
& have fought & killed their own people.
u don't fit the expectations, u'd be laughed at & will be
If u show any weakness, u'd be laughed at & will be dominated.
10- When she is captured & is being transferred by car, she sees
a chanting crowd
& sees a cute boy who is just a child, as old as her daughter.
She feels sorry
for the child, who stares back at her. Then the boy raises her
finger in the air &
drags the finger over his throat, signaling that they were going
to kill her!
11- When she is with the people in the village, she asks if she could
She is told no, Taliban won't allow it. Then later, she sees a
young boy going around
taking many pictures, using her camera, as if he was plating with
To me this shows the chaos & stupidity of the whole 'nation'.
In a sense
this is what they did, the young men using the toys they got form
going around shooting & killing & feeling important. Even
selling some of the toys if
they could. Many of their warlords made a lot of money out of
12- Millions Afghan refugee means that not all Afghans are fighters!
the point of women giving birth to 15 uneducated fanatic savage
would spend their lives fighting their own other 75 (at least
4 wives, each with 15 kids)
half-brothers & have sex with donkeys, following a savage
religion in a GOH culture?!
14- Now let's imagine a different scenario here. Imaging she lives
in a huge mansion
outside Afg which has expensive carpets & gold everywhere.
Then she sends 100 fully
armed Western soldiers with heavy arms to visit the local warlord
to organize a group of
local leaders & elders to visit her for an interview. She
is reputed to be extremely rich &
cruel. The Afg leaders are taken to her mansion & forced to
wear very expensive cloths
& given lecture on how to bow to her & don't look her
in the eye & address her with
'your highness'. Do u think that any of them would have dared
to 'mock' her?!
Not only they wouldn't have, but they'd have gone back to Afg
& bragged about their
visit & exaggerated all the luxury & wealth & power
they saw, just to raise their own
profile so they could rise above others.
15- I've heard many Afghans, in many books, complain about how the
"West don't care"
about Afg & how no reporter goes there to report the terror
& misery there. But this is
one reporter who did & see what happened. She was bullied
This is what happens when people become illogical uneducated savage
16- Imagine a blind dog breeder bragging about how pure his German
Sheppard dogs r.
U go to see his dogs on his 5Ha property & see all sorts of
mongrel dogs of any shape or
form. U see that his property has no proper fence, so all sorts
of dogs have gone in to
breed with his dogs over the years. Yet the blind guy can't see
nothing & keeps on
bragging about how noble his dogs r.
In a way this is the story in Miran/Afghan.
Not only over the centuries just about anybody has gone in &
raped millions, but many
also chose wives from other countries & their descendants
r easily seen today.
What is a pure Afghan or Miranian anyway?
Today many Afghans have kids with people from other countries,
living outside & inside
their own country. Many don't even consider themselves citizens
I haven't been an Miranian citizen for over 20 years. But I'm
a much better person than
I'd been had I stayed in Miran to become a savage uneducated brainwashed
17- A dog can give birth to 15 puppies in one go, does this mean that
who can only give birth to max 15 gaav/olaaq in a lifetime r worst
than a DOG?
let's imagine another scenario. Say that night there is a massive
earthquake & half the people in the village r killed. Do u
think anybody would still brag?
NO! They will all behave like beggars & beg to be helped by
the West. They will throw
themselves on the ground & pull their hairs out & will
fight each other over blankets or
food. They will throw themselves at the feet of the British reporter
Did u see the guy in Pakistan recently kissing the hand of the
infidel dirty British guy
who pulled his kid out of the rubble? Same guy who most likely
shouted abuse at
Americans & British after Sep 11.
19- Afghans still blindly follow the religion of their invaders who
raped & killed them
centuries ago & forced them to become Muslims. Some freedom

Wahab is sensitive & intelligent & I like him straight
away. And since
the boys talk about sex a lot - they are from the British tabloid
after all - Wahab feels he can ask them about Western sexual habits.
'In your culture, do boys, you know, do it with donkeys?'
'No, we tend to stick to our own species,' one of the hacks shoots
back, trying to disguise his distaste.
Then Wahab reveals that he has done it with a donkey, & the

a donkey ...'
He realises he's gone too far, & says quickly, defensively,
'I was 15
at the time.'
Now that Wahab has 4 wives, he no longer needs donkeys, of course.
When we're away from Wahab it's all we talk about. I'd never believed
the donkey stories before, even though I can see a lot of sexual
is being sublimated into other pursuits in this strange, separated
from which women have been virtually removed.

Only smart kids could become Akhunds, coz they had to be smart

But the KK was not smart enough to know one should not have sex

even made it OK in his holy book.
If he was smart, he would've questioned the shit version of Islam,
like Kasravi did.

Mut'a is a Sunni Muslim practice that allows a man to take a temporary
wife when he is travelling. ...
'Wahab, can a woman do this while she travels - take a temporary
husband?' Wahab laughs. 'No, of course not.'
Later, I hear about a very glamorous magazine journalist who is
propositioned by a warlord she is interviewing. He is bewitched
... everything about her is alluring. He asks her to marry him.
'But I have 1500 Kalashnikovs.'
'Yes, but I am in long-term relationship, I have a fiance at home.'
'And how many Kalashnikovs does he have?' thunders the warlord.

when he thought he was in real trouble, they asked him for the

Well if the KK Imam said sex with animals is OK, then porno must
be OK too.

There are people, but they are not my people.
There is weather, but it is not my country's weather.

It's fascinating how many Afghans loved the times they spent in
Russia, but yet many
others hate the Russians coz they were not 'Muslims'.
I bet Afghans couldn't even agree on which side the sun rises.

Another reason y gaav/olaaq can't have democracy.

says of Afghan man: 'their vices are revenge, envy, avarice, rapacity
& obstinacy. ....
they are less disposed than the nations in the neighborhood to

I think the bit about 'falsehood & deceit' is no longer true.
After many years of pain & misery & rape & killing
& looting, the whole culture if F*ed.
UN special rapporteur who investigated the Taliban deaths, wrote
in his report that
many bodies were also tossed down deep wells, then hand grenades
were thrown in, &
the wells were bulldozed over.
In a desert land, who would poison a well?
Stupid savage Gaav/Olaaq, who else.
Another example why they can't have democracy.
Once logic goes out of the culture, it would take over 4 generations
for it to return.

(Mullah Ahmed, a Taliban leader) says he supports the rules against
fornication, gambling & drinking alcohol.
He says that
he doesn't agree with all of the
Taliban edicts, like the ban on music & kite flying, though
it appears he was happy
enough to enforce them, ordering the religious police to beat
people who broke the rules.
He says he opposed the Taliban's destruction of the giant Buddhas
They stupidly join a savage group & rule with terror in the
name of 'God', but when
defeated, they say "Oh, I didn't agree to doing those things'?!
It doesn't work like that. 'GOD' is not a joke, if u rule in God's
name, u better make sure
everything makes sense & is 'Godly'.
But if they r stupid enough to fanatically follow a cruel illogical
religion, then nothing
good will come out of their lives in the long run.

solution. Like a mantra, every
man I interview repeats that he is sick of war.
The problem is that the culture has created stupid savage bully
gaav/olaaq over centuries
who can't think or agree on anything. If they could, they wouldn't
be fooled by nobody.
Even when the Masters go in to calm things down, the gaav/olaaq
still can't agree on
nothing & will go on for years fighting amongst each other,
as has been seen in
Until the mass gaav/olaaq is properly educated to THINK &
use logic in their lives, they
can't have much of a future.
Northern Alliance conquered Kabul in the early 1990s, & the
Ahmed Shah Massoud emptied libraries at Kabul University, burning
books on a pyre.
whole generation, including some of the teenagers translating

nothing but war. Sabi is a 19 year old from the Pamjshir valley
& we drive through the
ruins of Kabul listening to his favourite tape. He is a great
fan of Titanic. 'Did you like it?
It is my favorite. The story is too sad.' He plays his pirated
cassette of the score over &
over again. It provides a surreal soundtrack to the devastation.
I want to tell Sabi that
what is 'too sad' is outside the window, but for him, this is
destruction occurred in layers, caused not by the American bombardment
ended, nor by the decade-long war with the Soviets, but mostly
by the bitter civil war of
the 1990s. Afghans did this to themselves.
In fact millions of them still live outside, many doing gedaa'i

want to go back coz they don't trust their own people.
officials say Taliban visitors would tease Khers (the bear) by

his injuries look
more severe than that to me.
Yes indeed, u can tell a lot about a culture from the way animals
r treated in it !
Many Miranian parents telling their kids, who try to touch animals

the West, "na baabaa jun, dast nazan, kasifeh, chub bezan

(a Dr in the hospital) paused outside the door of the ward.
'The people of Kabul & Afghanistan are very unfortunate. Al
we want now is for the
world to be serious about Afghanistan.'
To me this is shocking.
A medical doctor expecting the world to fix problems the Afghans,
as if he or the
Afghans themselves have no role or responsibility for it!
What did the Afghans ever did for the 'world'?
Millions of them hate outsiders & have for centuries invaded
& looted other countries if
It was the Afghans who got sucked in, who were 'used' to fight
the Russians. The very
same Russians who were supported by many other Afghans to be there,
the very same
that provided education for many Afghans.
U can't be a stupid gaav/olaaq, fanatically following a stupid
religion, kill & rape & loot
u'r own people, destroy u'r own country, then EXPECT the world
fix u'r country, so than
then u tell them to get out of u'r country, so that u can then
do whatever u like in it.
Actually Afghans have proved this to be possible, but the world
is not stupid. If the
Masters go in to help, they will expect to 'profit' from it.
Y should the
outsiders care about Afghanistan if the Afghans themselves don't
care about it?
was no trial. Najibullah was beaten, castrated, & dragged
behind a jeep before
being killed. Taliban leader Mullah Mohammad Rabbani said the
50 year old former

Yes indeed, Islam means killing & rape & always 'castration',
as KK Khomeini proved.

lift one's EGO.

when asked to access the chances for peace, Dr Rahima is cautious.
'We have only a 50-50 chance. It depends on the UN & especially
America. This is the
3rd time the UN will make a decision regarding our country without
weapons from here. You know, Afghanistan is like a laboratory:
every country has
offloaded its arms, old & new, for them to be tried out here.
Afghanistan does not
produce guns, they are brought in here - by the Mujaheddin, by
the Taliban, by Osama. It
is up to the UN & America to collect these weapons.'
Yes indeed. Afghans r all no-bell people who r extremely kind
& human & r credit to
God who created only Afghans in His own image. But the Americans
exported their guns
into the country & messed up Afghans & taught them to
go around & kill & rape & loot
Afghans r not responsible at all, neither for what happened, nor
for trying to clean up the
Because Afghans r the cream of God's creation, they have the right
to tell the world what
to do & tell UN & American to spend this/that much fixing
problems in their country &
then leave, so that Afghans can make all decisions themselves
& fight amongst each
other over who should be the boss.

her older sister Fahima, she says she wants to help people.
'And in Afghanistan, being a doctor is a prestige job.'
Chris tells her that in England doctors are also rich.
'Then I want to come to London!' she laughs impishly.
Yes indeed, it's all about EGO & the urge to be superior to
others & be rich!
Helping people has nothing to do with it.
If Afghans were into 'helping people', they wouldn't go around
killing & raping &
looting their own people.
driving with Sabi, the sweet, funny teenager (19), obsessed with

gets out of the car &, without warning, grabs one of the guards
by the throat. The driver
& I rush to pull him off. The guard has a gun, & I don't
want Sabi murdered in front of

No, they r not 'volatile', they r 'savages' & will continue
to be until the mass is properly
educated for at least 4 generations, so that they learn to think
& be 'civil'.
what shakes me, & almost sends me home, is the murder of Swedish
Stromberg in Taloqan. He is shot during a robbery when bandits
enter his room at night.
Yes indeed, Afghans don't work for money, but they r happy to
loot & rape & kill.
But they also like to brag about mehmaan-navaazi & hospitality!
Just like Miranians.

Wow, a devout 'Muslim' betraying & selling out his own 'Muslim
The culture has created stupid savages who would kill/rape/loot
& even sell off their own
religion & 'brothers'!
Surely UN & Americans didn't teach them to do this & there
is no way they could teach
Afghans to stop it.
is that Russians want their old embassy back, but many Afghans
in it., so Russians ask them to leave. But it seems that savages
r not used to be 'asked', if
u do it will be seen as 'weakness'. Taliban didn't ask nobody,
they just bombed their
village & scared the hell out of them, so they just left.
But now see below:
the Russians just say "please leave here" & we say
we are not ready, we have
nowhere to go,' Wallamschi says.
"Did they offer you somewhere else?'
'No - & we remember them from 12 years ago. They did nothing
for us then. They are
non-Muslims, & we don't accept them coming back to Afghanistan.'
See what I mean?
Their own Muslims brothers killed & raped & looted the
savages, but they have the
stupidity to say that non-Muslims, just by not being Muslims,
r bad & evil.
Also, this is up to the government to decide, not a Goh gaav/olaaq.
This is another reason Y Afghans can't have democracy, coz every
thinks he/she runs the country & will give lectures &
demand this/that when given any
freedom to do so.
This means the minute u let go of the 'leash' & treat them
like humans, they will
dominate u & think they r the boss.
It also means that unless the government forces the gaav/olaaq
into submission, every
Goh could take the law into his hands.
One reason y monarchy could work better in the short-run.
Smart people can have smart democratic Monarchy.
talk to the security chief at the base. He is a Tajik who fought
by Massoud's side for 24
. He says in the old days, if he'd found a Russian
or American here at Bagram,
he'd have killed them - he passes his finger across his throat
But now that Massoud
has gone, he sighs heavily again, these foreigners are traipsing
all over Bagram & he
doesn't know what to do.
He speaks to me in excellent Russian
I have been translating for Tom & Jonathan, however when our
Tajik friend tells me that
I (a woman) am attractive but that Jonathan is extremely attractive,
'like a woman', code
in these parts for liking it both ways, I decide not to translate
This shows the stupidity of gaav/olaaq, that when their 'leader'
dies, the gaav/olaaq can't
think for themselves. So all the Masters have to do is to have
some gaav/olaaq kill the
leader & hey presto they have the entire cattle in their hands.
It also shows how the true holy Muslims are into homosexuality!
A savage & sick society, like Miran.
is predictable in this poverty-stricken slaughterhouse, with a
bloody past, a
troubles present & a precarious future. Flying away from Afghanistan,
I can only put my
faith in hope for a better future. What did the poet sing? May
Allah protect such beauty
from the evil eye of man.
To me the real question is WHY Allah has not protected the Afghans
& have allowed
them to be so messed up & practically destroyed?
