Ooops! Here's A Ronald Reagan Anniversary That The RIGHT Is NOT Celebrating!

Proclamation 5034—Afghanistan Day, 1983
By the President of the United States of America, 21 March 1983

"The tragedy of Afghanistan continues as the valiant and courageous Afghan freedom fighters [The Taliban] persevere in standing up against the brutal power of the Soviet invasion and occupation."
President Ronald Reagan simply loved the Taliban in 1983!

He loved them so much that the USA flooded them with as many weapons and ammunition as they could handle ... (hoping they'd shoot them at the Soviet Union). However, things didn't quite work out the way the Republican government wanted them to!

It is entirely possible that Canadian soldiers have been killed by weapons that were given to the Taliban by the US Republican government of Ronald Reagan!

what a find!

Agreed! After 25 years, you don't find anyone talking about how the USA sowed the seeds of what is now happening in Afghanistan. The Republicans just don't learn. We simply can't forget or the real story will simply be lost.

I thought that 'moral equivalent of the founding fathers' line was about the Nicaraguan Contras - you know the former torturers and death squad members under the American's puppet dicator Somoza who became 'freedom fighters' after he was overthrown by the Sandanistas. The guys who were financed by Ollie North selling missles to Iran and bombed hospitals and schools in their downtime from drug smuggling.
