Afghanistan used to be a modern, progressive, growing, enlightened, and vibrant country. Now it's the butt of jokes. It was the governments of the United States, Pakistan, England, and Saudi Arabia that fucked Afghanistan up and funded the Taliban extremists, turning them into a powerful force in the country.
This Egyptian guy in the video below didn't mention that little piece of history, but his larger point is still valid. Islamic extremism is an evil that must be gotten rid of through education and enlightened leadership. But, more importantly, the CIA, Mossad, MI6, Qatar, and Saudi Arabia must stop funding, arming, and empowering Islamic extremist groups like the Muslim Brotherhood, Hamas, Al-Qaeda, and the Taliban.
Instead of making fun of the Islamist pawns and looking down on them, people should direct their scorn and fury at their evil paymasters who reside in Washington, London, and Riyadh.
