Will you show me some hardcore facts to back up your claims I agree the CIA helped the mujahideen to oust the soviets but from what I have read the Taliban took control in the 90s after a long civil war and I find it very hard to believe 9/11 was government orchestrated the scale to cover it up would be near impossible the thousands of people it would take to pay off is or keep quite is insurmountable and don't quote me no conspiracy theory lose change bull

As most intelligent people know the term conspiracy theory is used usually in the hopes that the population will believe the scripted lie prepared by the american government.As I said the taliban and alqueda are proxie armies created and funded by america and israel.These proxie armies were created to be set upon countries to give a pretext for american government invasion.If you believe the scripted BS lie about 9/11 told to you by the american government you are in a growing minority.

Call me cliche all you want but that's how I feel I have friends and family who have or already have served in afghan and Iraq and some who will be there soon and I don't see how I was whining about anything I have no political affiliation with any party just trying to talk in a civilized manor instead of just spewing insults out there with everybody I don't agree with like 90% of the fu#ktards on the Internet
