poor guys, desperately trying to avoid conflict
Thank you for posting this video. The speaker spoke eloquently and within 41 minutes, destroyed the propaganda western mainstream media had presented for years about the Taliban. It even cleared some of my misconceptions too.

You didn't answer the question.
I'm not sure why, but it seems like a lot of members here blindly support the Taliban, and take every opportunity to show how amazingly Muslim and misunderstood they are... I'm not going to take a side here since I don't know all that much about the actual Taliban, but the thing is, I'm pretty sure most people here don't have a lot of actual experience with the Taliban either, and yet we find vehement supporters everywhere... All I do know (and I've mentioned this before) is that some people from Afghanistan have some pretty horrific tales regarding the Taliban, and that should be enough to at least show some of you that perhaps we can't be so quick to completely support them...
Again, I'm not taking a side. (I've learned that that's probably not a very smart thing to do here) I understand that whatever stories I might hear might not represent ALL of the Taliban, but I'm just kind of tired of the blind support, and the aggressive behavior directed at those who bring up points that are against the Taliban...
[And no, I didn't watch the video... But the things I said were more general anyway, so it's okay. I'll watch it eventually.]

sides of the story, especially in America.

No, not blind support. Like I mentioned earlier, read history books, watch documentaries, keep a eye on the news and listen to lectures. This will help.
I have yet to see aggressive behavior directed at those who are against the Taliban on this forum.Again, I'm not taking a side.

and the main thing that everyone on this forum will support (not sure about you) is the right for them to defend their land from invasion
It's right to defend their land, no doubt.
But they should defend their land within Islamic guidelines.
Not everything they take responsibility for follows Islam.

Anyways, the invasion of Afghanistan and Iraq is unjustified and to this day there is no valid reason. We're told it's to "help the people" but i'm sorry, millions are dying from diseases these people have created in the rest of Asia and Africa and they don't get any help?.. It's much cheaper and more peaceful to spread a vaccine than kill innocents every day wtih drones and missiles. False flag attacks have been used throughout the history to justify actions of true terror and tyrany, and things like 9/11 are no different. If people continue to turn the other cheek and choose to believe the mainstream media then they are only living in ignorance and fear, really. The people the Media brands as "terorists", "militants" and whatever else are just regular people. I mean after all, if you're dead, you can't contest that you're innocent.

The fact is the Taliban are just normal people who are trying to defend their home and people and if they have no right to do that then nor have you or me to defend our own homes against intrudors.
this is well said.
also, a spokesperson from the taliban is just about as credible as a spokesperson from the whitehouse.
i think you mean The Fact is the taliban are another example of unwanted foreign interference in afghanistan just like NATO, the Russians, the British, alexander the great, genghis khan, etc.The fact is the Taliban are just normal people who are trying to defend their home and people and if they have no right to do that then nor have you or me to defend our own homes against intrudors.
The allied forces will only ever make Afghanistan more unstable that it is now. Do not be fooled thinking that they are their to "free" a nation just like the media portrayed when they were in Iraq and look at Iraq now does it seem free to you?
We must wake up and stop being fooled by the media for the media will never portray the true reality only the reality the zionists want to portray for they are only in Afghanistan to achieve their own agenda not for the reasons they will give to the public.
Says who? You?
The fact is NONE of us know who the Taliban are. The fact is none of us has ever met Taliban. The fact is none of us have experienced occupation under the Taliban. And Tyion is talking about some of those who have experience occupation under the Taliban.
Nor do we know whether they are actually fighting for their own people.
Who is the Taliban? Are Pakistani Taliban the same as Afghanistan Taliban? If so, committing suicide in Pakistan killing many Muslims is hardly defending your religion or land.
I and Tyion are NOT naive enough to support a group we don’t know, never met or experienced. No where have I seen Tyion wrote that he support western war in Afghanistan and Iraq or western media.
I am very much against the war in Afghanistan and Iraq. That does not mean I have to support Taliban.

It is very easy for anyone to commit an atrocity and blame it on a group of people. This is a very old tactic and one which is used very successfully.
