A US report from Afghanistan states (written with eyes agog in wide-eyed wonder, one assumes) that the Taliban has become “a resilient insurgency”, ie good at fighting. I never imagined Rambo 3 was perceived as a documentary by US (alleged) Intelligence, but it may be prudent to point out that it was in fact a movie. Yes, the Mujaheddin did receive arms from the US, which they used to fight off the Soviets, but they did the actual fighting. Maybe someone should have looked that up. Just sayin’.
