The War on Afghanistan and Islam November 3, 2010
Lost Treasures of Afghanistan- Film
How is the recent past of war explained, or is it?
How are the Taliban portrayed?
If you only saw this film, what would you think was happening in 2006 in
Afghanistan?
It seemed as though war was over, nothing was going on
What do you learn of the complexity of Afghan society through the film?
If you think about Mamdani's article, what makes 'good' Muslims in the film?
Do you see any similarities with Rwanda or Darfur?
The Taliban are presented as cold people, real people are emotional, they care and
cry and get upset.
Real people hated the Taliban
Wanted to preserve the
Cold wars and proxy wars
The End of colonialism
Haiti was the first wave of colonialism, and with the second wave, we saw that
colonialism set up through divide and rule. Where people adopoted and were willing
to kill and die for the identities molded by the colonists.
We are trying to look at a history that bridges two very important eras
1.st second wave colonialism
2 cold war- post second ww war, begins with relationships between
America+uk+france, against ussr
1989- berlin wall falls
in 1991, the countires that were united under the ussr begin to divde as there is no
economic means to maintain.
1940's-1991
What are the pressures and processes to ending the second wave of colonialism
The second world war- following it in those regions there was a bad taste, this war
was seen as European, and yet this war caused a large deal of death and destruction
in other peoples homelands
in other cases, many of the colonial holdings actually joined the war effort on behalf
of the colonial overlords.

many countries came out of the war with a lack of economic dominance. Was easier
to negotiate independence rather than to keep the countries to themselves.
anti-colonial war, socialism versus democracy war north Koreans freedom from
france
portugal was never involved in WWII so they did not feel obligated to give up their
holdings. Hence the brutal cival wars in Angola and Mozambique
indian independance 1947- picking up to 1950- h
the newly independent countries had trouble after their independence
colonies were used as people resources and markets
did not have a strong economy. dependant upon export, primary
resources(agriculture, forestry and mining) had very little steel, consumables etc,
stuff that a self sufficnet economy needs.
population is now counting on you for something better after and with
independence.
the cold war
spheres of influence
what they did is they tried to try and peddle their competing ideologies about the
good life. They were allowing for extra-political relationships to the countries that
would enter into relatonships with them. They were looking for allies.
Fear that the cold war will turn hot
geo-strategic advantage-
geo-geographical , getting particular territories for specific advantages. Deep water
ports
many people died during the cold war, very few were American or soviet. Preffered
to fight eachother through proxy wars
having a war in a territory between one territory funded by the usa, the other by the
ussr
angola, korea, Vietnam, Greece, Namibia, congo, sri lanka, Indonesia, Mozambique,
the americans sent their own soldiers, although the other side was not the Russian (
Vietnam)
following the terrible defeat, the usa had to come up with alternative ways to come
up wth getting as many countries as they could on their side.
began to try to manipulate politics around the world using different types of
strategies, coups- overthrowing, are part of an attempt to maintain control in
countires
chile, Guatemala, iran, etc usa backed, provoked violence on the ground and civil
war.
these people want a third path, independent nations, relating with whoever offers
the best deal. Turns out when you look broadly, this seems to guarantee violence,
usa forced
warring did not permit third way.
