“We fought the Soviets because they had no God, they believed in nothing,” they said, as the [in]terp[retor] translated. “They were your enemies, and they were our enemies. We respect you, especially Christians, because we have the same God. We know you’re here to help and we need your help because we are poor. The fighting of the mujahideen destroyed everything. Day by day, since you came, our lives have gotten better. But if you move your base here, the enemy will attack us. Stay far away. Stay in Kalagush. Send us your help from there....”This is a wonderfully well-written and informative piece for City Journal written by Andrew Klavan. Give it a look-see.
Good Day to You, Sir
