It's a wonder that such assistance helped blossom the Taliban in that region.
Did they attack the US with anti-aircraft weapons, stinger missiles, and armed assault weapons? If the 9/11 attacks never happened, we wouldn't be there. Even so, are any of those even a major factor in the conflict over there? They are attacking us with mortars car bombs, and IEDs.
