  • Afghanistan before the wars

    I wanted to follow up on chief's Vietnam photo link. I came across this a few days ago and thought everyone would want to check it out.

    Its hard to believe that no more than 50 years ago Afghanistan was once a developing middle eastern power.

    Astonishing Pictures Of Afghanistan From Before The Wars

    Excellent photos. I went outside on the ground a few times and saw through a Rhino how some streets in Kabul were. A lot of areas were dilapidated just like Iraq but some resemble similar conditions as in the photos. There is a lot of new construction happening in the major cities.

    From the air, in which I mostly traveled, indigenous areas looked tranquil and serene. But reality hits since their country has been occupied for nearly 35 years. Bagram is no longer the same too. Civil Affairs is doing a remarkable job. lol
