- Mar 23, 2004Comrade,To be honest, there are dozens of groups.One cannot even count. There is no such organised resistence in Afghanistan.Al Qaida however is on the run and is not that active in Afghanistan.Taliban are pretty active again but mainly for economic reasons. All afghan militias and war lords have nothing political except to control , snatch or defend a particulat area , region in order to loot the people there and collect the tax. The only econimy Afghanistan has is 'war economy'. The only job available to Afghan youth is that offered by some militia.Islamic Jihad of late it seems has not been that active.But not al Qaida either.Farooq

All the press writes about is "Al Qaida".
What ever happened to the Isamic Jihad of
Afghanistan which I thought was the dominant
"terrorist" group based in Pakistan.
They used to have a website where they advocated
military actions in war zones(areas occupied by
foreign troops) only and claimed credit for
actions in Afghanistan that the US has called Al
Are these 2 different organizations and if so why
is the US ignoring the differences and who is
really fighting Karzai and the US?
Now the press says they never had any evidence
that any AL Qaida officials were even in the area
attacked, so what is really going on?
