    It's been a long time since i last posted a thred on DFI(been promoted really not that much time on my hands anymore) but this is one article i would like all of you to read, ahmed shah massoud has largely been forgotten since his death at the hands of Al-Qaeda 9 yrs ago but for afghans he has become legend.A reminder to the afghanistan that might have been had he lived, for us indians he stands as an example of a friend who if he lived would have had the charisma to protect afghanistan against the taliban. I remember watching the news of his deathg on BBC sdo many years ago and thinking Oh shit! now it's all going to go to hell and go to hell it has! this articla is dedicated to the man the soviets called" the demon of the panjshir" and the afghans knew as the "lion of the panjshir".Rip Brave soul.
