In this occurring because of American politics? Is this happening due to the past BushCo's wars and its defective politics?

The Taliban now controls more territory than at any point since the US invasion of the country in 2001.

Judges killed in attack in Afghanistan

Three judges and a court employee have been killed in an alleged Taliban attack in Afghanistan's central province of Logar, officials say. Three judges and a court staffer have been killed in Afghanistan after Taliban militants stopped their car in the latest attack on the judiciary.

A spokesman for the governor in eastern Paktia province says the incident took place in the Mohammad Agha district of neighbouring Logar province.

"They were travelling in a car but were stopped by the Taliban checkpoint on the road," Abdullah Hasrat said on Thursday.

No group has claimed responsibility for attack, which came as the victims were driving to the capital, Kabul.

'Car bombs and suicide bombers were unknown in Soviet-era Kabul'

In this extract from his 2011 book, Ghosts of Afghanistan, Jonathan Steele recalls his first visit to Kabul, which in 1981, was firmly under Soviet control

Its happening because of "Operation Cyclone" - surely the most disgusting and cynical single action ever carried out by any regime on earth.

Reagan armed criminals and created jihadis who would poison Afghan society for 100s of years.

The CIA's Intervention in Afghanistan

Interview with Zbigniew Brzezinski,President Jimmy Carter's National Security Adviser

Le Nouvel Observateur, Paris, 15-21 January 1998

Question: The former director of the CIA, Robert Gates, stated in his memoirs ["From the Shadows"], that American intelligence services began to aid the Mujahadeen in Afghanistan 6 months before the Soviet intervention. In this period you were the national security adviser to President Carter. You therefore played a role in this affair. Is that correct?

Brzezinski: Yes. According to the official version of history, CIA aid to the Mujahadeen began during 1980, that is to say, after the Soviet army invaded Afghanistan, 24 Dec 1979. But the reality, secretly guarded until now, is completely otherwise Indeed, it was July 3, 1979 that President Carter signed the first directive for secret aid to the opponents of the pro-Soviet regime in Kabul. And that very day, I wrote a note to the president in which I explained to him that in my opinion this aid was going to induce a Soviet military intervention.See (re-posted 15 October 2001)

The Wacky chooses to deceive us in the introduction by rejecting the above but still says this:

Operation Cyclone was one of the longest and most expensive covert CIA operations ever undertaken;[2] funding began with $20-$30 million per year in 1980 and rose to $630 million per year in 1987.[1] Funding continued after 1989 as the mujahideen battled the forces of Mohammad Najibullah's PDPA during the civil war in Afghanistan (1989-1992).[3]

However, lower down the same heavily western dominated article makes clear what really happened:

In March 1979, "CIA sent several covert action options relating to Afghanistan to the SCC [Special Coordination Committee]" of the United States National Security Council. At a March 30 meeting, U.S. Department of Defense representative Walter B. Slocombe "asked if there was value in keeping the Afghan insurgency going, 'sucking the Soviets into a Vietnamese quagmire?'"[8] When asked to clarify this remark, Slocombe explained: "Well, the whole idea was that if the Soviets decided to strike at this tar baby [Afghanistan] we had every interest in making sure that they got stuck."[9]

... In May 1979, U.S. officials secretly began meeting with rebel leaders through Pakistani government contacts. A former Pakistani military official claimed that he personally introduced a CIA official to Gulbuddin Hekmatyar that month (Freedom of Information Act requests for records describing these meetings have been denied).[10] After additional meetings on April 6 and July 3, Carter signed a "presidential 'finding'" that "authorized the CIA to spend just over $500,000" on non-lethal aid to the mujahideen, which "seemed at the time a small beginning."[7][8][11]

Brzezinski later claimed that "We didn't push the Russians to intervene, but we knowingly increased the probability that they would."[12][13][14] According to Brzezinski, he became convinced by mid-1979 that the Soviets were going to invade Afghanistan regardless of U.S. policy due to the Carter administration's failure to respond aggressively to Soviet activity in Africa, but - despite the risk of unintended consequences - support for the mujahideen could be an effective way to prevent Soviet aggression beyond Afghanistan (particularly in Brzezinski's native Poland).[9]

The full significance of the U.S. sending aid to the mujahideen prior to the invasion is debated among scholars. Some assert that it directly, and even deliberately, provoked the Soviets to send in troops.[15][16][17][18][19]

... Carter himself has stated that encouraging a Soviet invasion was "not my intention."[20] Gates recounted: "No one in the Carter Administration wanted the Soviets to invade Afghanistan and no one, as I can recall at least, ever advocated attempting to induce them to invade ... Only after the Soviet invasion did some advocate making the Soviets 'bleed' in their own Vietnam."[9] Ibid.

Buried deep in the article is this:

More than $20 billion in U.S. funds were funneled into the country to train and arm the Afghan resistance groups.[47]

Get that? $20 billion (other sources say $40 billion) worth of arms handed out to the very worst and most terrorist of jihadis.

Difficult to believe that the US ever carried out a policy this evil, I hear you say?

Just imagine what that amount of weaponry would do to the US if it was handed out on the streets of Los Angeles and Washington.

Imagine what it would do to Mexico if the Russians ever did anything so evil.

You posted that GUARDIAN foolish ARTICLE SEVERAL TIMES! 

This not relevant to what is posted here above... -- anyways...

It is important to KNOW that the Quran does not contain a single original moral value. 

It is the only religion to do away with the rule of general benevolence found in all others - including "Golden Rule."  Instead of advocating universal love and charity, the Quran distinguishes between believers and unbelievers, drawing a sharp distinction in the value of each group and laying the foundation for discrimination and dehumanization.

(the Quran is Hate Propaganda?).

Islamic law, non-Muslims may be owned as property by Muslims, but - in keeping with Islam's supremacist message - a fellow Muslim should never be (unless they convert to Islam after they are enslaved).

The historical ancient Afghanistani  (pre-islamic) were not Arabian horsemenr with tribal spats, but since Islamic tribes invaded it, more pain occurred  with the Taliban Pàshto from Pakistan and religion groups between Sunni and Shia....

It's never ending!!! Look up Kushan Empire 150 BC-300 AD

I know this  land was inhabited by various ruling  kingdoms for millenniums. Before the arrival of Islam in the 7th century, there were a number of religions practice in ancient Afghanistan, including Zoroastrianism, Surya worship, Paganism, Hinduism and Buddhism. The Kaffirstan region, in the Hindu Kush, was not converted until the 19th century

Let's not forget Alexander the Great Afghanistan created a civilisation

As we have read through the scripture of Islamic beliefs system, it is  certainly impossible to comprehend how people complain that the Russians and the Americans  were there as they tried to help out, it is so corrupt and chaotically impossible to heal anything!!!

Loads of Afghans grumble that the Taliban and other militant groups have now set up checkpoints along the major highways, searching cars and looking for government staffs members.

Within the gap, a news sequence does not go by without a report of Islamic terrorists blasting themselves into  small pieces - setting cars with bombs and IEDs, shooting or stabbing infidels and cutting off the heads, burn people alive mostly journalists and other innocents who happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time.

The majority never read history and sadly they are always keen to blame someone else and even protect the intolerant  bullies!!!
