"PHOTO : Young Mujahid (..." Afghanistan Favorite Tip by AliJoe

Afghanistan General: 23 reviews and 30 photos

by AliJoe

Favorite thing: PHOTO : Young Mujahid ( fighter ) On Stand By To Defend His Family And Village. His Elder Brother Far A Way At The High Mountain. His Father Long Time Sahid ( past a way in the fighting to defend a religion ).

In 1947, the political status quo in this area was fundamentally changed by the withdrawal of the British from the Indian sub-continent, an event which left a political vacuum for Afghanistan. Faced with the negative attiude of late President Truman, for the purchase of American arms, Khrushchev stopped over in Kabul, to offer arms deal and the long term loan $100 million dollars was granted to Afghanistan. The new era and problems start at here.
