… Fighting For Bashar al-Assad.

"More than 2,000 Afghans deployed by Iran have been killed fighting in Syria on the side of President Bashar al-Assad's regime, an official in the volunteer force told Iranian media.

The Fatemiyoun Brigade of Afghan "volunteer" recruits has been fighting in Syria for five years, said Zohair Mojahed, a cultural official in the brigade.

"This brigade has given more than 2,000 martyrs and 8,000 wounded for Islam," he said in an interview with the reformist Shargh newspaper published Saturday.

Iran rarely provides figures on the numbers fighting and killed in its operations in Syria and Iraq.

The last toll was provided by the veterans organisation in March, which said 2,100 volunteers had died without specifying how many were foreign recruits…"

"more than 2,000 martyrs and 8,000 wounded for Islam"

It's okay when they say that they are fighting a religious war (Jihad), but wrong when we agree that's what they are doing. Weird, huh?

I'll bet we would, tell us then.

I can't. Mean to say, It involves somethings that were going on over in our AO, which was in Kunar Prov. Young boys were involved…

And we could'nt do anything about it.

Bacha bazi boys and Thursday night's, not just your AO mate and not just Afghanistan.

Well, that may very well be, Foxweasel, but if my company CO would have turned us loose…No survivors, friend. Because what was going on in our AO was looked upon as accepted. And that very nearly could have been real trouble.

This is theminiaturespage and that was 2009. Who cares? But what if they DID?

Hold onto your hats, folks, because this is Afghanistan Crazy. There are only two levels of crazy higher than Afghanistan Crazy. The first is Pakistan Crazy, and anything beyond that involves extraterrestrials.
