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
Let's start with Khalek's 1st reduction: "The USA funded (meaning; started) the Mujahideen"

There are so many flaws in this (half) sentence.

1st, the Mujahideen only had hegemonic trait - they were Muslim. Otherwise, they were Islamists, Liberals, Apolitical, Conservative etc
The Mujahideen were all across the spectrum and came from all segments of #AFG society - doctors, lawyers, shop keepers, famers & students. This conversation has been going on a long time prompting @alibomaye to make a short video explaining the nuances
