Once upon a time in Afghanistan

Photos from Afghanistan in the 1950s - well worth a look. Amazing to think how far the country has fallen in our lifetime.

Thanks to the Devil's Kitchen - err, Knife.

Interesting stuff.
I can remember studying Islam in 1972 at U of Q, and the radical jihadists we know these days were considered about as relevant then as the Hamish are to mainstream Christianity these days.
Obviously something has changed. This may provide an explanation -
