    Title: Taliban Getting Training in Iran

    Note: it is very impressive title and suggests that Tabliban must be the gangster buddy of Iran,otherwise, how can Iran allow Taliban to be trained in Iran?

    Fact: Iran hates Taliban more than Yankees,because Iran is Shiite Muslim and Taliban is Sunnite Muslim. either looks on each other as "heretic" and has hated each other for thousands of years.

    If Iran were cooperating with Taliban, then N.Korea could cooperate with S.korea to kick the ass of Yankees......clap



    Text1: Some Taliban fighters are being trained inside Iran, sources told CNN, but it is not clear whether the program has the support of the Tehran government


    Note: Pls pay attention to "sources" here....it is anomymous and innominate ,so it can be anyone. For example, it may be "dissidents from King Pahliavi's supporters",or Prisoners enjoying 'Guantanamo treatment". It even may be Uncle John who is selling apple pies in one street of New York.
    So, if the "resources" is wrong, all will be the fault of "source" and has nothing to do with CNN . So it won't harm the reputation of great CNN at all.
    Furthermore, great CNN has pointed out that "it is not clear whether the program has the support of the Tehran government",so you can see how "fair and objective" CNN is ....clap





    Text2 :"For some years, Iran has supplied arms and munitions to the Afghan Taliban," a U.S. intelligence official was quoted as saying"

    Note1: here " a U.S. intelligence offical" play the same role of "resources" ,because it is anomymous and innominate too.so, if the information is wrong, all will be the fault of "anomymous U.S intelligence offical and has nothing to with great CNN and geat USA government.
    So, we can see how clever and wise CNN and USA govenment is . They nevery nominate the name of information resource,so they are l never resposible to any fault.
    Compared with clever and wise CNN and USA government, CCP's propaganda department is just a stupid idiot. when CCP express their data and information, CPP always underlines that the information resource is "national statistics" or "National Trade Ministry". So, if information were wrong, all would be the fault of CCP. Stupid CCP's propaganda machines realll should study CNN closely.

    Note2: "supplies" suggest a lot meaning here. As long as there are several "Made in Iran", CCN would never wrong here,even if those "made in Iran" were supplied to beat Soviet during anti-Soivet war(1979-1989)
    BTW, Israel also has lots of "made in Soviet", but I am sure that CNN never reports that Israel has some weapons "supplied" by Soviet iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii

    Text3: It has also helped conduct at least small-scale weapons training for the Taliban. There's reason to believe that some of this training has occurred in Iran."

    Note: "reason" is the key word here. Great CNN never explain such "reason" in detail. If such a vague "reason" was written in one university paper , I am sure that Prefessor Bob would never pass such a paper. However, Professor Bob is not the editor of great CNN




    Text4: An Iranian official at the United Nations termed the training allegations "absolutely baseless and wrong allegations, and strongly rejected by the Islamic Republic of Iran," CNN said. Tehran has always denied giving any support to the Taliban.

    Note: of course, CNN always is "objective and fair". it is necessay to tell people the voice from the other side---Iran. So, here it is....Iran say no.
    doesn't Iran's "No" bring people sympathy to Iran? Don't worry. CNN slways has lots of propaganda tricks.PLS read the last setence: "Tehran has always denied giving any support to the Taliban.[/B]"
    come on,guy, how do you feel the sentence,especially the key word "always"? Need I explain "always" more here ? remember, that is how CNN is always "right and fair"!



    Text5:Former CIA officer Bruce Reidel, who assisted the Obama administration in its strategic review of Afghanistan, told CNN the Iranians have mastered the IEDs or improvised explosive devices, which the Afghan Taliban has used increasingly, inflicting many casualties on the U.S. and coalition forces there.


    Note1: obviously, it the the conclusion the the model essay.
    "former" is a key word here. "former" means the current USA government needs not be reponsible to what the resource express. so if it is wrong, it has nothing to do with current USA government...gook tricks agains...in fact, it plays the same role of "[B]resource"(text1) [/B]and "a U.S. intelligence offical"(text2). it duty is to make great CNN and wise current USA government always right.


    Note2: subtle suggestion can make CNN always "fair and objective".
    When reader read the word " Iran has the tech of IDE and improvised explosive devices and Taliban has used them increasingly" , their most prompt reaction obviously is that Iran is busy arming Taliban. that is just what CNN wants and duty of the model essay-----persude readers that Iran is the buddy of Taliban. Obvously, to finish the duty, CNN will never tell people that all west countries ,including USA ltsef ,has the tech of IDE as Iran.
    If you buy CNN's model essay now, it just proves that CNN does it job very well.


    BTW, Did CNN or the "former CIA officer Bruce Reidel" says "taliban cooperate with Iran"?No. either CNN or the "former CIA officer Bruce Reidel never says so. so if you think Iran is the buddy of Taliban, it is your conclusion. CNN and USA government will never be responsible to your conslusion.....

    Not all reports have to be believed. But we never know what happens in the games countries play. Astan is a battle ground for many countries to spread their influence and they can go to any depths to get what they want. Just yesterday the Taliban spokesman talked of reconcilliation with India.

    It can well be that the Iranians are in talks with Taliban. May be or may be not training them. CNN cannot be taken on face value because of its history to be a white house spokeschannel. But independently i would not rule out anything at this stage including India talking to Taliban.

    According to the above model essay of CNN, one CHinese netizen wrote another CNN-style " always right report":


    as we see, it is very easy and cheap to be as "fair and object" as CNN and other west medias.

    I will not allow this thread to be converted into a criticism thread of a news channel. Discuss the news and not the channel.

    When people try to comprehend what is going on in Afghanistan in specific and in the region in general, they put on their history glasses because this is the only yardstick 99% of people can measure with. However the reality is that certain variables tend to fluctuate, especially when related to war as nothing is set in stone in war, and those who follow the rules and adopt a conventional mindset will surely be beaten. Iran among other countries are probably funding the Taliban just to keep the west bogged down, because the current government has a U.S. presence which wouldn't welcome the scent of Irani influence in Kabul, some sort of influence is finding its way into Afghanistan for sure. Those who would deny such a possibility are clueless to how even the first Afghan episode actually played out.

    There are only two countries that Taliban got their resources from:

    Americans, who gave them those to fight the Soviet invasions.
    Soviets, when the Taliban took all the Soviets left after withdrawal.

    This is just another utter rubbish propaganda by the CNN and therefore the US. Pakistan has a much greater nuclear capability than Iran, and at the same time is one of the most notorious terrorist training countries. Yet nobody seems to care in the west about that, given that Pak are US allies. It's all about politics.

    or US is doing the foreplay to justify their attacks on Iran... Just like fool-ya bureau at work to spread rumors like Iraq held 'weapons of mass destruction' before the war.

    Well if US ever decides to attack Iran, they will make sure that by then we all believe that Ahmedinejad is worse than Hitler.
    However, Iran isn't Iraq. There are 50million more Iranians than Iraqis, and Iran is not being lazy at hoarding arms. If they truely have made air defense equivalent to Russian S-300 and if Russians sell them S-400, US can forget about air superiority above Iran, and if they don't have that, they can kiss the low casualty scenario. And the only thing US public is really weak at, it's suffering numerous casualties.
