Afghanistan Taliban (3)

Today, talk about Bagram Air Base. But, to understand more, we have to know the background first. After a break between 1996 and 2001, the Taliban regime kept ties with Pakistan, UAE, and Saudi Arabia. After five years of near-medieval rule by the Taliban from 1996, preceded by a half a dozen years of fighting among mujahideen warlords following the Red Army’s withdrawal in 1989 — the decade before that too was of fighting as the US-backed, Pakistan-trained mujahideen took on the Soviet military — Afghanistan was in ruins.
