afghan jihadis earn a living waging violence
these guys are jihadis, because somebody offered them money.
and jobs are hard to come by, but weapons are everywhere.
cia has poured in massive amounts of money for arms.
why are there jihadi extremists? foreign armies are an old problem in the area, and imperialism is felt as a religious war on their culture, pressure on their society drives people towards findamentalist religious leaders, witness iran after the shah, another yankee installed proxy.
The muslim jihad was always sponsored by the pakistani secret service, via money from CIA and Saudi Arabian sources.to combat soviet occupation, but the brainwashing in the madrasas continues.
