So a poem - which is just so reminiscent of arab (now calling themselves palestinian) women during the Hebron Massacre. Old cultural blood-lust, just rebranded?

But, if you check Wikipedia[^] you find the history of the Taliban, itself, is quite short.

In the article, about 1/4 way down the page, we have a section:
Quote:
Role of the Pakistani military

The Taliban were largely founded by Pakistan's Inter-Services Intelligence beginning in 1994; the I.S.I. used the Taliban to establish a regime in Afghanistan which would be favorable to Pakistan, as they were trying to gain strategic depth. Since the creation of the Taliban, the ISI and the Pakistani military have given financial, logistical and military support . . .
Many nasty fingers in the pot, but by-and-large, Pakistan (even more than Saudi) is to blame. The other international players, involved, with the usual stupid mistakes, are there.

Ravings en masse^
"The difference between genius and stupidity is that genius has its limits." - Albert Einstein
"If you are searching for perfection in others, then you seek disappointment. If you are seek perfection in yourself, then you will find failure." - Balboos HaGadol Mar 2010
