An event that none of my family members will forget is that when Taraki got warnings from Amin and his men. [small summarised thread]
Amin working with CIA should be a common known fact, there many Soviet and American references for this will tweet them in the upcoming days.
Amin was the biggest opponent within the Khalq party and the biggest opponent for Taraki. Amin wanted to be the president but instead Taraki became the president.
In following months near the collapse of his government, Amin sent KHaD agents to arrest my two eldest uncles.
They tortured my eldest uncle and electrocuted my my second eldest uncle in a very painful method.
My grandmother had no idea where both of his sons were and was very panicking. When they finally came home, my uncles were completely wounded and exhausted.
The agents then said, per direct command of Amin: "let this be a warning".

[Daud Khan, Najib, Taraki, Guldbudin, CIA, ISI& Iran]
Everyone knows that the USA has interests in Afghanistan, but what if I told I that thoss interests began in the early 1950s?
Afghanistan had recognized the Soviet Union in 1923 which they later on become like "brothers". Which for the regional gain of influence was a stunning goal for the Soviet Union.

Who would've thought that a innocent man like Erdogan would let this happen. Lemme add something too, during the 'jihad' in Afghanistan Erdogan, Arabian warlords, and Afghan warlords formed a unity. Also known as "Heb-i-islami".
In the Karabakh war in the 90s dozens of these terrorists fr Afghanistan were sent to fight against Armenia. Beside this Erdogan praised the terrorist Hekmatyar. (See image)
