Although I wrote this article at the end of April 2022 – thirty years after Afghanistan’s Soviet-installed regime was ousted and the military triumph promptly squandered in a fratricidal war – various issues and commitments meant that I could only get it published at the Afghan Eye outlet this month – which is fair enough, because this month marks thirty years since the weak interim ruler Sibghatullah Mujaddidi was ousted and the major players got cracking. https://afghaneye.org/2022/06/03/thirty-years-since-april-1992/
