Aamir slowed down as he nervously approached the outpost manned by Fariad and his militia.

When the Americans invaded Afghanistan, his younger brother, Behnam, became radicalized, a fact that didn’t escape Fariad who had switched sides for money.

One night, Fariad came looking for Behnam. His mother begged to spare his brother’s life, but Fariad just pushed her away. She wailed helplessly as he dragged Behnam outside and shot him.

Fariad sneered as he saw Aamir’s tractor stopped. When he and his militia went to inspect his cargo, Aamir pulled the trigger on his suicide vest blowing them all up.

    Unfortunately there are too many variations of this story being played out daily in part of the world.

    A tragic ending, being played out as we speak somewhere in the world, I guess.
