Chinese (Still) Supplying Weapons To The Taliban (Updated)Topics: War on Terror
That's the way I call it; how else could they explain this?
And wouldn't you just know it, according to an intelligence report back in 2002, China and our "friend" (sic) Musharrif's ISI intelligence service actually collaborated in training the Taliban prior to 9-11. In that same year, evidence of Chinese military backing for the Taliban surfaced when U.S. Army Special Forces troops discovered 30 HN-5s, the designation for Chinese-made SA-7s surface-to-air missiles, in southeastern Afghanistan.
By the way, let's not forget to through Russian and Iran into the mix of terrorist supporting nations and problem initiators for the U.S.

Thanks for the mention as always. Seems the world gets smaller and smaller, with all the inter-connections of countries and terrorists. Russia building Iran's nuclear sites and supplying weapons to them. China and the Taliban, who would have thought?

Funny thing, though, it's almost always the same old players when it comes to irrational behavior and threats to world peace. China, Iran, Russia, Syria, N. Korea, parts of Pakistan. As for a common thread, at least since 1994, the tool is so often something to do with radical Islam.
