Is the US Army Really Fighting Against Taliban?
A Journey to Pashtuns’ Land
US-led media outlets call it “Islamic fundamentalism”. In 2011, thousands of Afghans took to the streets and burned US flags in condemnation of a sacrilegious act by two US pastors who burned the holy Quran. On the day of protest, all of a sudden a bomb went off among the crowds, killing and injuring hundreds of people. Following the 9/11 terrorist attack, US forces were deployed to Afghanistan as part of Washington's so-called war on terror. “A Journey to Pashtuns’ Land” is a documentary about the political influence of Pashtuns on the Afghan government and its political decisions. The short film studies the effective role of Taliban in Afghanistan as well as the reasons behind Washington’s deployment of 3500 additional troops to the war-battered country. It reveals that the presence of US troops in Afghanistan on the pretext of fighting terrorism is just theatrical performance, revealing that terrorism is just an excuse and that Washington might be only after the country’s rich natural resources.
