I would say it was modernizing in their main cities (Kabul, Herat, Mazar E Sharif) while the country side was relatively undisturbed.

Afghanistan was great, and ke went into the new level of reforms with Tariki and communists taking over, but you idiots started backing islamists which caused long devastating war and turned Afghanistan in hell, and than we got Al-Quaieda, ISIS and the other islamists all over the world, which caused the permanent disturbance of Middle East (along with your support of Israel) which caused death of millions of people and the stream of people getting the fuck out of MENA to all the countries around the world. You have also turned Russia and the other CIS countries in shitholes in 90's so we are going to be the next big warzone, that is what i really afraid of.

Probably like the other stan countries.

Yes, sure, the massacre of more than a million civilians and the placement of ten million Soviet landmines was totally the fault of the Americans and not the innocent Soviets.

Let's face it - there's a good reason why nobody liked the Soviets except Soviet puppets.

Beautiful place

Maybe Soviets shouldn't have went there in the first place.

Osama bin Laden was super rich and mostly backed himself.

Still a tribal shithole outside Kabul

>>53245713
Amin made a coup backed by West, he had killed Tariki, we had no choice. We had to help Afghan people.
>Osama bin Laden was super rich and mostly backed himself.
His fighters were prepared by Americans in Pakistan, as well as Taliban ones.
>>53245589
>massacre of more than a million civilians
Made mostly by the american backed islamists.
>>
>>53246595
Taraki and Amin were both shit. Soviets abandoned Najib who was an actual leader.
>>
>>53244354
Basically, full of Arabs, just like today. Has been since the 10th century AD at the latest.

Arabs didn't settle in Afghanistan nor conquer it.

They converted to Islam through the Persians.
>>
>>53247677
I'm not saying US was innocent but Soviet did start the fire in this case. However they have admitted ages ago that the way they went and left there was a big mistake.
>>
>>53247734
Arabs settled in every single land that has ever converted to Islam. The reason why Afghans, being Indo-European highlanders largely who are largely unmixed with Dardics, are predominately dark-haired is because they mixed with Arabs. There are still tribes of Persian-speaking Arabs throughout Iran and Afghanistan. I don't know why people think this is a meme, but if you are a Muslim absolutely anywhere in the world, you almost certainly have Arabs somewhere in your family tree.

>By 667, the Afghan area was under invasion by the Arabs but in 683 Kabul and other parts of Afghanistan fought with resistance and completely routed the invading army which was led by the Governor of Seistan. The near-complete conversion of Afghans to Islam was during the period of the Ghaznavids in the 10th

>Most of the early Arabs gradually lost their Arabic hegemony and ultimately mixed with the local population, though they are still considered a cognizably distinct ethnic group according to the Constitution of Afghanistan and the Afghan National Anthem. Afghans who carry Sayed or Quraishi in their names usually claim Arab ancestry.
>Arab contingents settled throughout various parts of present day Afghanistan including the Wardak, Logar, Kabul, Balkh and in the Sulaiman Mountains. Over time they adopted local customs and languages, some became Persianized while others became Afghanized who followed Pashtunwali.
>Although some tribal names, including Qureshi and Shaiboni are still remembered,[10] most of the Arabs view genealogies as unimportant

Being descended from the Quraysh is the Islamic equivalent of being aristocracy anyway, and there is also a popular custom in Islam where each person hailing from Mecca (a so-called Makawyah) is considered to be holy and worshipped accordingly. Even in Bosnia and Checnya will you find people descended from Arab mullahs and the like.

>>53248497

One of my mates is an Afghan with the last name "Alhashemi". Is he descendent from Arabs too? I asked him and he said he didn't know.
>>
>>53248497
It's stupid to say that. Arabs look different if you are familiar with the people.
>>
>>53244354
A little bit less shitty.
