Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Ted Welch:
The movie does not mention that the mujahedeen went to war against the Soviet-backed government then in power in Kabul after the government committed the unpardonable crime of allowing female students to attend rural schools

I somehow don't think the film would have been made, never mind become a block buster success, if it had sent out the message that the US armed "terrorist" Mujahedin intent on overthrowing their own government for allowing the education of girls in schools. I can just imagine a producer trying to sell that storyline to the Hollywood moguls!
