A picture of him should not be accompanied by just the above message.
This is Ahmed Shah Masood. His allied and enemies alike used to call him The Lion of Panjshir. He is the only man who ever fought for Afghanistan, rather than himself or his tribe.
hats? is this like hipster Afghanistan omg no please.
Ahmad Shah Massoud, the Lion of Panjshir, held the northern alliance against the taliban for the longest time despite scarce resources. Feared by the taliban, he was a great military strategist who warned the world about Osama bin Laden and Al-qaeda over and over again. He told the U.S about an impending attack by Al-qaeda, but U.S didn’t listen. He was martyred on 9th sept. 2001 by a camera bomb blast by the taliban. Two days before the tragedy of twin towers. Such great was his threat to Bin Laden that he dared not follow through with his plan while the Lion was still alive.
OH SNAP, SKOOLED
