Afghanistan in the 60s

Some photos I found that were taken in Afghanistan in the 60s and show a world that is most likely completely different from our conception of it. Just wanted to share them. Photos taken by Mohammad Qayoumi.

I know its ironic coming from me, but moral of the story is communism and religious extremism ruins everything.

As an American I would like to apologize for my government essentially funding the extremist takeover of Afghanistan.

Same **** happened to Iran after Khomeini took over.
Well, not quite as bad but comparable.

< Iran during the 1950s.

I just realized that the way the Middle East is now is kinda like the Fallout universe. Everything used to be all orderly and functional (pictured above) but then the war(s) ****** people's **** up, and now all the building are dilapidated, the people can't trust each other, gangs roam and **** **** up, the government fails to fix things, and everyone is packing heat

Iran in the 70's was beautiful and modern. We had good relations with USA and the rest of the world, my mom tells stories of how it was and there were actually american and european tourists roaming the streets of Teheran.   
One day if we get rid of the extremists ruling our country, I would sure like to visit

They were really chasing Westernization until... Well, religious, political, and geopolitical problems got in the way. Then there was the whole oil thing. The country was essentially raped.

But everything changed when the oil nation attacked

Blame the Russians and Americans, Russians started the war and America supported Mujahideen forcing Afghanistan and much of the middle east into their own dark age.

Same thing with Iran, Iraq and other mid-east countries. 						****					 went pretty peaceful until some internal and external morons like the extremist and the greedy oil suckers combined. Like when America aided the Taliban to help them fighting the Soviets.
