Ahmad Shah Massoud warned

that Afghan's Taliban problem would become the world's problem in Spring 2001 at the EU Parliament. No one listened.

I first read about the Taliban in late 1997 and my initial gut reaction was that this would eventually become a massive problem for America - I had no idea at the time how massive it would be. I considered writing to Clinton that he must support the Afghanis, but having nothing more than a gut feeling, never wrote. I did try to tell others about my feelings and the Taliban problem, but most people didn't even know where Afghanistan was, let alone be concerned about what was happening there.

If Tyranny and Oppression come to this land, it will be in the guise of fighting a foreign enemy.
