“They [the CIA] told me these people were fanatical, and the more fierce they were, the more fiercely they would fight the Soviets… I warned them that we were creating a monster.” – Scholar Selig Harrison8
The story begins in 1978 shortly after the Saur Revolution, which resulted in the communist People’s Democratic Party of Afghanistan gaining control of the Afghanistan government. The CIA immediately initiated a program known as Operation Cyclone and began funding militant Islamic groups favored by the Pakistani intelligence agency ISI, to the tune of $7.5 billion.9 The money went to producing, training, and arming militant Islamic radicals who were directed towards fighting the secular communist government.
At the time, the Mujahideen was composed of many different, loosely organized groups encompassing a broad spectrum of ideologies, with widely varying perspectives on religion, society and state. Seven major Afghan factions began receiving aid, three of them Islamic moderates and four of them Islamic fundamentalists, as defined by the military. In addition to native Afghans, they were composed of many foreigners who traveled to fight the invasion, such as Osama bin Laden himself.10
To understand the scope of the funding, the BBC stated that the CIA provided enough arms to equip a 240,000 man army, and Saudi Arabia matched them dollar for dollar.11 The weapons given to these fighters were not just AK-47s and other simple arms. Many were high tech, such as Stinger Anti-Aircraft missiles,12 provided with the intention of demoralizing Soviet commanders and soldiers.13
The majority of the funding was funneled through Pakistan’s ISI, which acted as an arm of CIA interests and began setting up religious schools known as Madrassas in Pakistan cities and frontier areas, churning out tens of thousands of students who would join the Mujahideen.14 (Note: Madrassas are not inherently negative institutions, however the ones who received funding from the CIA were particularly radical).
All of this began a full six months before the Soviets invaded Afghanistan, according to Zbigniew Brzezinski, President Carter’s National Security Advisor. Brzezinksi recalled his involvement to a French news magazine in 1998:
“We didn’t push the Russians to intervene, but we knowingly increased the probability that they would… That secret operation was an excellent idea. It had the effect of drawing the Soviets into the Afghan trap. The day that the Soviets officially crossed the border I wrote to President Carter, ‘We now have the opportunity of giving the Soviet Union its Vietnam War.'”15

Easy Way to Earn Extra $25-$100 + per day,
in 7 or so Minutes…
I have experimented
1.) Start Using Bitcoin
in day to day purchases.
knowledgeable about Bitcoin
( by reading about it online for some amount of time,every few days).
2.) Just email your friends,
AND/ OR make informative/ educational posts on facebook/
about your experience, ease & political motivations
for comfortably using bitcoin.
IME ( in my experience ) it takes 3-7 Minutes a day of thought
about what to type in facebook status update or e-mails,
and results in 1 or 2 sales every time I do it!
As you start to use bitcoin and lose faith in the US Dollar
and Learn About the Devaluation of the Dollar,
the Loss of Our Freedoms, Police Brutality,
and Abolishing the Federal Reserve ….
why don’t you get paid to share with others
the alternative to supporting the failed system
that keeps “them” in power and helps fuel every major war
and every major evil corporation?
If you are still using USD as your preferred payment,
you need to try bitcoin,
by putting $100 or slightly more,
just a small amount of money, into a bitcoin “wallet”,
and try using it!
You can buy things in bitcoin online
instead of using a credit or debit card,
or offline out in the “real world”
through your app buying coffee
if you put a “bitcoin wallet” on your smartphone;
PLUS you can earn $10 every time you refer a friend to Bitcoin
by using the same type of post that I am doing right now…
email it to 3 friends a day, post it on facebook,
or get more creative if you wish.
