Safi said his police forces had information that former mujahideen fighters, who forced Soviet forces from Afghanistan and later plunged the country into a bloody civil war, were receiving training in Iranian territory and were sent back to Afghanistan to carry out attacks against the government and international forces.
The notion that Mujahideen (or Pasthun Taliban for that matter) need any "training" from Iranians in how to fight in Stan....it completely absurd.
Though weapons......They'll always take those....
I don’t know about that. You may know this already, but the Afghans Mujahideen did not use IEDs, especially of likes Iran is providing. This type of warfare was really perfected by Hizbollah in Lebanon and used by the Chechens more recently. I do think the Afghan Mujahideens could learn from the Iranians, for example, how to operate sophisticated Chinese made SAMs of the MANPAD type.
