Thread: @RaniaKhalek lying about Afghanistan. She continues to purposefully distort historical facts in order to bolster her inaccurate and reductive political analysis. Here she is on Kremlin funded @IntheNow_tweet, whitewashing the Soviet occupation of AFG that killed 2 million

1st, the Mujahideen only had hegemonic trait - they were Muslim. Otherwise, they were Islamists, Liberals, Apolitical, Conservative etc
