Afghan Army's Hashish-Smoking Troops (VIDEO)
    #11700152 - 12/22/09 05:56 PM (11 years, 4 months ago)

Afghan Army's Hashish-Smoking Troops


First Posted: 12-22-09 10:03 AM  |  Updated: 12-22-09 02:56 PM

The fledgling Afghan National Army faces numerous obstacles in its efforts to become a force capable of maintaining security on its own. And, as the video below illustrates, the situation is made all the more difficult by the persistent use of hashish among troops.

"I think if they introduced drug testing to the Afghan army we would lose probably three-quarters to maybe 80, 85 percent of the army," says one U.S. soldier.

The U.S. marines training the Afghan army come across as consistently frustrated by how unfocused, and often high, many of the Afghans are. They complain repeatedly of soldiers coming to training without a lot of their gear, including their helmets.

One U.S. Marine summed up the situation succinctly by saying: "Ultimately, it effects their ability to protect their nation and get Afghanistan on its feet."

HAHA that was a great clip. It showed just how ridiculous our involvement in there country is. And you will never see this on CNN i promise you that. In fact i would say that whoever taped this will be hearing from someone near Obama. He wants to be in Afghanistan.

There are thousands of better ways to smoke hash all day.

Like they said in the video, most of the people who are there are only there because they were chased out of their villages for causing trouble and being worthless.

That, combined with the fact that promotions are given based on who you're related to, and not how you actually perform.  If there's no incentive to be a better soldier, then of course they don't give a shit and just smoke hash all day.

It has something to do with the fact that they're stoned and stupid.  I'm pro-legalization but there's no way smoking hash makes you a sharper combatant.  Sure, it would help with certain factors but on the whole it's  not desirable to command stoned troops in combat.

I'm pretty sure Muslims are allowed to smoke bud in their religeon. But they aren't allowed alcohol.

Thennnnn you know absolutely nothing about Islam.  A quick google for "are Muslims allowed to smoke marijuana" would have turned your "pretty sure" into "Muslims are definitely not allowed to smoke bud in their religion".

No intoxicant is allowed in Islam.

"Islam"  is a very fluid and complex idea.

There are millions of people who consider themselves Muslims and still choose to smoke cannabis.

There are different interpretations of Islam, some of which allow for more or less interaction with intoxicating substances.

Look up Sufism.

nail on the head dude. i think the main problem is that they're stupid and undisciplined, the fact that they smoke hash is a secondary problem...
