In the book the Taliban are shown as a cruel and brutal organization. The author uses some of the Taliban 's rules to bring fear into Najmah. One rule that Najmah fears is "men must have beards that you can grab in your fist and still have the hair sticking out at the bottom"(Staples 14). She is afraid of this rule because she knows "Baba-jan has little hair on his face, and although he wears a beard it is not very full or long"(14). The Taliban will take men away, and they do not care whether they have a family or not, and the Taliban will force the men to work for them or they will shoot
“He says someday we’ll have television in Kabul,”...“I heard they already have it in Iran,” His saying that made me kind of sad. Sad for who Hassan was, where he lived. For how he’d accepted the fact that he’d grow old in that mud shack in the yard, the way his father had.” They look forward to having a TV, but in reality, Afghanistan is years behind other countries, with TVs having been common in homes since the 1950s in other countries The culture becomes more hidden. Acting up against the regime are various rebel groups, who begin to receive arms from the US(Which quickly backfires in the faces of our military generals). Life becomes dangerous.
My article is about how the Taliban affects the everyday life of the people This relates to the book because it shows how bad and harsh the Taliban is. And how many people 's lives were ruined..

Their children have been born here, a place without furniture, a dull limbo where time doesnt matter.

The ship made its descent from south Hampton, England and its final destination was New York, USA.
The reason I have to stay in Kinshasa is that the country is not safe and the reason for that is that infrastructure of the country isn’t stable. Poverty mixed with corruption is not a good recipe. Last year when I was at the airport about leave to head back to Richardson a security guard with a AK-47 strapped on his shoulders asked me for 200 US dollars. He was pretty intimidating especially with his orangish color surrounding his iris from the lack of vitamins in the water. These things can happen and can cause riots or worse a civil war.
She reflects how mothers in this time did their best to save their daughters from the savage society. The ladies had no rights in this society. They were abused, raped and punished with no mercy.

Rasheed was happy with Laila, but until Mariam got to know her, she thought Laila was a no good husband stealer. As the story progressed and Rasheed began to shun Laila as well because she gave him a baby girl instead of a boy, Laila and Mariam teamed up and protect each other instead of fighting one another. Rasheed had gotten more brutal even with a baby in the house. Laila and Mariam had enough of Rasheed's horribleness towards them, they decided to run away and start a new life, but soon were turned into the police and returned to Rasheed who did terrible things to them. “She was being dragged by the hair… He let go of Laila's hair, and she felt the toe of his shoe connect with her left buttock….
Mission San Jose High School Drug Trafficking in Afghanistan Britney Hu AP Human Geography Mr. Jeffers 3/5/18 Drug Trafficking in Afghanistan Afghanistan is one of the largest producers of opium and heroin in the world.

He was only 18 and was always in and out of jail if he had a real role model in his life then things would have been so much more different.
Unveiling Imperialism: I found it unbelievable that these “holy warriors” supported by the US. were the ones to commit attacks on women and that the US government was somewhat responsible chose not to act to in pro of these women in Afghanistan.

They were deprived of every right they had, and not only with that, but they were also forced to wear burqas.
