Editorial Reviews

To the United States and the Soviet Union Afghanistan was always a pawn in a much bigger game. First the Soviets bought them off and then the US sent in arms. The Russians sent in troops and we sent in the CIA to train the Mujahedin to kill Russians. But then came the Taliban and the pawns started moving on their own... We'll mine the guarded vaults and archives around the world to reveal the untold story of how the pieces turned on the players and the jihad came to Kabul and the streets of New York.

After reading the Kite Runner with my students, I wanted to know more about the Taliban and this well mad DVD was good for teaching me an overview of the situation and how everything originated. I even showed it to my students, even of some scenes are quite hard, ( i.e. Taliban shooting a woman: we see it quickly, for a distance, but still...), and they liked it. What makes it a good DVD to present to students, is that frequently, we have the date and the chronology of the events that help us follow.

Killing Americans doesn't bother them at all. On 9/11 they
killed nearly 3000. "This was all that we hoped for," their
leader Bin Laden told newsmen. On April 1st, 1983, they
attacked the US Embassy in Lebanon killing 63. In
October 1983 they bombed the Marine compound there killing
241. In December 1988 a bomb took down Pan-Am flight 103
killing 243 (most of them high school and college students).
In February 1993 the World Trade Center was bombed, the
National Guard building and the Alcobar Towers in Arabia
were bombed. The American embassies in Kenta and Tanzania
were bombed in July 1998 killing over 300 and in October
200O the USS Cole was bombed killing 19.
Everybody clear now on why we're after these terrorists?
Get you head around this: In Irag, our Navy Seals discovered
"Terror Rooms" developing ways an enemy could get explosives
through our airport security checks.

Would you do one thing for me?
Would you stand up tall, walk outside
and kiss the ground for me?
My America, my America
God gave this land to me
My America, my America
where I'm so blessed and I'm still free.

This History Channel DVD is a good historical overview of why/where they started, and where they have been. Some of the video is unusual.

Both the Russians and Americans misunderstood each others' intentions in Afghanistan - the Russians thought the Americans were moving in, and the Americans thought the Russians were marching to the sea. A Communist coup took over the Afghan government, and the Russian Army soon followed to back it up in 1979.

America made it a priority to help defeat the Russians (as they had us in Vietnam) - billions of dollars and weapons were poured in. American Stinger missiles turned the tide - they shot down three Russian choppers the first day deployed.

The department Soviets left much of the war material, and after leaving the fighting continued - now in the form of a Civil War. The Taliban started with religious students from Pakistan, received important support from Pakistan, and took Kabul in 1996.

The last information anyone has about Osama bin Laden in Afghanistan was 12/7/01 in the Tora Bora area.
