Taliban clashes with rival Afghan militants kill 60 plus many civilians in the crossfire!

I am sorry for those civilians or any innocent civilians of every country that is starved or killed while those fighting for superiority and their agenda pursue their goal. I hope those civilians finally realize they do not matter and the Taliban is not fighting for them as they want the people to think. They are fighting each other to be the leader people be damned as is the case around the world and right here as we witness every day between Democrats and Republicans. Time to turn on Hezb-e-Islami and the Taliban so the people can live their way not extremists way.

Not only did the rivals in Hezb-e-Islami kill each other and many innocent civilians but dozens of Hezb-e-Islami fighters had defected to the government during the fighting. Hezb-e-Islami is the second biggest militant group in Afghanistan and loyal to former PM Gulbuddin Hekmatyar. 40 Hezb-e-Islami fighters were killed along with 20 Taliban fighters. Keep killing each other, this just keeps getting better.

I hope you read the story at the link. It is quite intriguing and telling as after Hekmatyar and other mujahedeen forced out the Soviets he was against the Taliban and swore allegiance to the Government who then twice elected the ruthless leader as prime minister. His ruthlessness is what led the people to foolishly think the Taliban would be better. Hekmatyar was kicked out of the Government after he was caught trying to overthrow it which led him to join the Taliban.

Now the Taliban and Hezb-e-Islami are killing each other along with civilians. I have heard that up to 100 of Hekmatyar's fighters and the Taliban have switched sides to join the Government. The civilians have to join them and start helping the Government fight those that want to enforce Sharia law on them. It is working in Pakistan and it can work in Afghanistan too. This just keeps getting better. We discussed it many times in the past. Remember the militants world started crumbling with the capture of Mullah Baradar

When all is said and done I remember when it came out that Karzai was corrupt and he won the election. The people’s attitude was oh well, one corrupt Government is as good as the next .At least the Government is not killing and maiming the people in the name of Sharia law. The government might be corrupt but it is better than the alternative.

I don't think it will matter who is in power. Afghanistan started out as a country made up of nomadic tribes. It's just a matter of who will control what. With all the corruption I don't think anything will change. Without a major nation building process I believe Afghanistan will revert back to what it once was.
I still wonder why the Soviets went there in the first place.

I use to wonder what the hell the Soviets did that for and now we did it. WTF? They have never had a central Government and have always been tribal. If they have to have a central Government for the good of the masses so be it but let them stay tribal.

I didn't understand why the Soviets wanted it, and why the US didn't want them to have it, until I heard that the Taliban were in Houston, negotiating with Enron for a pipeline deal.

Then it made sense to me.

Ken Lay's legacy continues. It was luck for Dick Cheney and others that CEOs are prone to having heart attacks in prison.
