OK, just noticed that I've made a slight mistake naming the files, you should all put a zero in front of the number, since it's double digit. Sorry about that, if we put it all in a zip it will be fixed.


And the first character bio:

It's kinda hard to fit the text into the bubbles sometimes, due to the small size. So some bubbles might look odd, text not straight etc. Could've made the text small enough but then you wouldn't be able to read it so I guess it'll have to do.

Afghan Memo #12 -- The effects of the Cold War
The Cold War was an antagonistic confrontation between the US and the Soviet Union in the aftermath of WW2,
essentially a battle of philosophies between capitalism (empire), and communism (society).

This confrontation dragged in various other countries, and divided the world into east and west.


In the Middle Eastern region, Afghanistan became the boundary between the East
and West, and thus suffered from tulmultuous political upheavels.

The Cold War also served as the impetus which gave birth to Islamic Fundamentalism.

Afghan Memo #13A - The Soviet Invasion

In the later stages of the Cold War, beginning to see a their end in sight, the
soviet allies thought "If even a single communist state were to fall, it would have an
effect on the entire communist alliance".

In January of 1979, an Islamic revolution occurred in Afghanistan's neighboring country Iran. A third power in the word, Islamic fundamentalism rose due to the influnce of the Cold War, and gave birth to the Islamic Republic of Iran.

In december of the same year, the soviet alliance fearing that the wave of
Islamic fundamentalism would spread to Afghanistan. dispatched forces to
the as of yet still politically unstable Afghanistan hoping to make it a
bastion of communism.

Afghan Memo #13B - Soviet Withdrawal and Civil War

Due to the Soviet invasion, many villages in the mountainous region of
Afghanistan were destroyed.

At first, the mujahedeen were at an overwhelming disadvantange. However,
receiving aid from the US, Pakistani, and several islamic governments they
were able to make use of the naturally rugged and inaccesible landscape in
order to continue fighting soviet allied forces.

By 1989, the economic an human toll of the war forced the soviet alliance to
withdraw their troops, and announce an end to the nearly 9 year period of
occupation of Afghanistan.

However, after the withrawal of the soviet forces, the Mujahedeen who had been engaging in various internal factional disputes, began a power struggle (civil war) in earnest, and thus Afghanistan began heading yet further down the road to ruin.

あふがん一口メモ そのEX 「-スタン/-istan」

Afghan memo EX- "-istan"

「-スタン/-istan」とは、ペルシア語で「〜の土地、〜の国」という意味で、
英語の「land」とほぼ同じ意味で使われています。

The suffix "-istan" means "land of" or "country of" in Persian,
similar to the suffix "-land" as used in English.

国名などに使われているそのほとんどは、「民族名+スタン」で成り立っていますが、
「パキスタン」(一口メモ02参照)のような例外もあります。

When "-istan" is used for a country name it's generally in the form "Tribe name + istan",
however "Pakistan" is an exception. (refer to memo #2)

Afghan Memo #14, Afghani Refugees

Villages in Afghanistan's mountainous regions were devastated during the
soviet invasion, while the urban regions that had largely avoided destruction
became caught up in the outbreak of internal conflicts with the Mujahideen
suffering considerable damage.


Due to this, nearly all agricultural and manufacturing activity ceased, and
the country fell into ruin.


More than 6,200,000 Afghani refugees fled to the neighboring country of Pakistan.


They represented the worlds largest scale refugee movement, and caused
significant economic and civil problems to their neighboring country.

Afghan Memo #15 -- The Forgotten Country

During the Cold War, afghanistan was the center of attention as the boundary
line between East and West.

However with the outbreak of the Gulf War in 1991, and the collapse of the
Soviet Union, the countries of the world, Japan included, suddenly lost
interest in Afghanistan.

As a result the supply of foreign aid all but disappeared, and this had a huge
impact on Aghanistan and its neighboring countries.

Afgan Memo #16, Central Asian Independance

Starting in 1990, the various communist countries behind the iron curtain in Eastern Europe
began rebelling and declaring their independance one by one.

It seemed that this wave of rebellions would spread through the entire soviet
alliance, however the countries of Central Asia were not affected.

However, the declaration of independance by the Russian commonwealth sealed
the destruction of the Soviet Alliance, and the states of Central Asia inevitably
followed suit.

The various states of Central Asia had their hands full dealing with their own
internal tulmult in the wake of declaring their independance, so none of them
interfered in Afghanistan's civil war.

Afghan Memo #17, Central Asian Neutrality

Following suit with the other republics, Turkmenistan declared its independence from the Soviet Union in 1991. However, in sharp contrast to the rise of democracy and freedom in other former Soviet states, Turkmenistan developed a government ruled by a presidential dictatorship.

As with Afghanistan, Turkmenistan bounders many ethnic groups in its area. It has retained its neutrality in all matters around the region, and was officially acknowledged by the UN General Assembly as a "permanently neutral nation" (like Switzerland) in 1995.

Currently, Turkmenistan is avidly seeking to construct a huge pipeline across its country to exploit its vast natural resources. However, the instability of the region has been a major hinderance to its project.



Afghan Memo #18, The Rise of the Taliban

The word "Taliban" stems from the pluralization of the Dari (Persian) word "Tali," which translates to "seeker."

Members of the Taliban consisted of former Afghani refugees who learned military tactics at Islamic religious schools called madrasas in Pakistan. In 1994, they initiated their conquests around the rural regions of Afghanistan.

Their advanced guerilla tactics overwhelmed the warring mujahedeen warlords. To the eyes of many Afghanis, the Taliban was looked as a hero that would finally put an end to years of civil war and fighting.


Afghan Memo #19, The Taliban Government

Starting with the aid and support of Pakistan and the United States in 1994, the Taliban was able to secure an overwhelming victories against the mujahedeen. By 1996, the Taliban controlled over 70% of the region. When they captured the capital Kabul, it established its own government.

However, to the dismay of the liberal and Western-minded urban residents, the newly formed Taliban government imposed a conservative state based on radical Islam.
