Why not? If you have never had a rock throwing contest with your friends I pitty you.

This video doesn't change my feelings towards them, I understand that they are human, that they have children, joke, play games and can be kind...

But you know, if you're fed this 'god is great' shit all your life and you don't know any different and on top of that... The Americans, The British etc... We are basically invading their country. I think anyone would fight back if they felt their land was under thread never mind the reason.

The Taliban are from Pakistan, who invaded Afghanistan when the Mujadeen managed to barely survive the Russian invasion 3 years before. And they provided support and aid to Al-Qaeda and other terrorist networks.

So no, this video does not make me feel any simpathy towards them.

While I am not a native Pashto or Arabic Speaker, the subtitles aren't 100% accurate but are close to what is being said.

The Americans were instrumental in the empowering of Taliban as they collabrated against the russians.

To this day America inadvertedly helps create more Talibans

What do you think happens to these people after they are attacked, once innocent civilians join the Taliban Millitary.

I agree, I don't mind the Taliban fighting for their country. I don't like their religious and violent views on life though. But they sound crazy just like those freaking hardcore Christians.

Okay, first of all: These journalists have guts of steel, man. Massive props to them.

So as for the video itself... it is interesting, but also kind of sad. These guys shoot at US military vehicles as if they were great victories, and not just drops in the bucket. Their determination for revenge is so great that they simply will not ever give up, even when the overthrowing of the western world is completely unrealistic.

Also, shame on the United States for murdering children, as usual. :roll:
