    “I think it’s very clear by now that the world has forgotten Afghanistan,” Sarwary said.

    If Afghanistan was full of European whites then you would have definitely seen the hue and cry.

    There was time ( on the internet at least ) when Afghan whiteness was a very core topic , internet afghans were getting anal probes and DNA tests to show their whiteness but that did not last for long , some remnants are still there but by and large it has gone into the background.

    Anyhow white or not , now Afghanistan is a 100 billion dollar basket case for US/NATO and they rather not talk about it

    to the defense of European White people they have sent their sons and daughters to fight, bleed and die in far and distant Afghanistan for almost 15 years -- I think they have their own problems to worry about.

    No one told the, to go there as most of them were volunteers. Secondly they didnt go there to do charity work but to kill the local populace and make their life miserable. If they hadnt come them they would have to worry as well.

    oh come on -- I mean come on

    The hospitals, the roads they were meant to kill people -- you think people just enjoy killing other people for fun -- come on -- you can do better than that.

    Looks at the situation of SYRIA IRAQ LIBYA AFGHANISTAN post NATO invasions. Do you really think the locals give rats asss about how Americans or Europeans feel? So many people have died that even NGOs have lost the count and all for what? Didnt they know that if they go there then they will kill or be killed? As usual they wasted their lives for a cause that they didn't even fathom in the first place. What good are roads and hospitals to the people who are dead?

    yes Iraq was a mistake -- and people admit that -- there was a lot of opposition in the US and the West to that.

    But the US did not invade Libya, Syria?

    Bagdadi, Asad, are not Americans

    US directly financed the opposition group to ASAD in order to bring him down just to counter russian influence. Russians retaliated by supporting Asad. Most fighter in ISIS are carrying weapons which were given to Asad opposition indiscriminately. US intervention encouraged saudis and iranians to interfere which just spiced up the entire dish. It is not always the direct actions that cause misery but rather short sightedness to not see the consequences of covert hand. This situation in syria could have been solved much peacefully if Americans hadn't stick their finger as usual where it didnt belong. The posture of being a global policeman by US is getting annoying by every passing year. There is not a single US intervention whether direct or indirect which didn't result in more war and bloodshed. Name me a single US intervention which actually brought some good news to the locals of that country.

    The broader world participated in that -- not the US -- and the Syrian opposition are not Americans

    Yes the Syrian situation could have been resolved if Asad had quit

    So who is isolating who? Not long ago Afghans were screaming to isolate Pakistan. Pakistan didnt even bother replying to their non sense.

    Ajeet Doval was right when he said that India will fight with Pakistan till the last Afghan. As for Afghans, keep on sending yourself to the alter of sacrifice. Pakistan simply dont care.

    Yes like it was resolved in the 80 when the previous Asad did in Hama. Would the number of people who died have been less -- maybe -- but the anticipation was that Asad would be gone by now.

    American actions were not due to any malfeasance. Why people blame American before their fellow Muslims is beyond me.

    No the US armed terrorists groups to do their dirty work in Libya and Syria instead. Not saying those Muslims are innocent but neither is the US.
