    Insurgent Propaganda

    Post by aussie digger on Thu Aug 25, 2011 5:16 am

    Hi All,

    Well here is probably my favourite item i bought back. This is one of a few posters found hidden in Afghanistan. Its a propaganda poster distributed early in OEF by the Haqqani network.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Haqqani_network

    I lost the translation of this poster but it was things along the line of its every muslims responsibility to fight the U.S infidels wherever they can and that the coalition is there to change the people of afghanistan and not to help.

    When we had the interpreters look at these we had to stop them from burning them, they found it very offensive.

    This is the Pashto version, there were also some in Dari.

    I imagine these would be pretty uncommon as it was not a good idea to be caught with something like this and due to the illiteracy within Afghanistan there were usualy only a couple of copies in each area and they were moved around the area to be read by local elders.

    I just noticed that in the title of the thread, "insurgent" is spelled incorrectly, can a mod for this section please change it?
