Given how stupid a breed they are, I'm surprised they have an opinion on anything that doesn't involve sniffing each others' asses.

"The dairy plants survived the Soviet invasion, "

Stopped reading there. The article even mentioned the Communist coup that disposed the former leader. The Soviet Union didn't invade, they were asked, begged, to come and prop up that Communistic regime.

Why would they have farked up the butter during their non-existant invasion? They farking just rolled in (and then faught the Mujahadin for years untill they got fed up with it, and let Afghanistan go back into their old farked up ways. Whatever you feel like saying about the Soviet Union, one thing they didn't tolerate was discrimation against women. Girls went to school, hospitals were free, and I'm sure the butter was safe. At least from the Soviet Union.)

Usually when the Soviet Union comes in, one of the first things they fark up, is the food.

I would have to go with Ireland, Belgium, the Netherlands or Denmark, all famous for their butter, but, of course, I've never done a butter-tasting tour of the world and the Afghans might be right.

The most important thing about butter is for it to be at the right temperature. This is not as easy as you might think. Unless your household consumes enough butter to allow you to store it in a cool cupboard rather than the refrigerator, it is very difficult to have enough butter on hand at exactly the right temperature and consistency for each purpose you have for butter.

It's a paradox. The Butter Paradox. The simplest and most delightful food in the world is too hard to eat.

And then there's the Afghanistan paradox. The country that nobody wants is the one where the most people are dying fighting over it. Shakespeare once described a war as "fighting over an eggshell", but Afghanistan is not nearly that useful. It only has about 25 miles of roalroad and its principal products seem to be opium poppies, lavender and walnuts. Nice but not vital to anybody's economy except Afghanistan's.

It's like a whirl-pool, a Maelstrom that sucks in unwary empires and spits out the bones of armies. The British sent in an army of 17,000 men. Some were held for ransom, but only one is known to have escaped, draped over a donkey that somebody, a humane and saintly soul, patted on the back and pointed towards Pakistan. He was a doctor but too sick to ride a donkey.

It always reminds me of The Man Who Would Be King.

I am sure that many Afghans are wonderful people but face it, as a country they suck. Like the Russian novelist said, taken one at a time boys are wonderful, but in groups they are monsters.

Have you ever noticed that Afghanistan is shaped like a cartoon boy with a feather in his cap?

Well, since they were already Communistic butter cooporatives (and from the sound of it, still partly are), they wouldn't really have any direct cause to mess with their butter.

The article says they survived the "invasion" anyway, so if anything, at most farked a bit with it.

/doubt that Afghanistans butter is the best in the world. But good for them that they're proud of something, and can work together about it.

You've now confused Cheese Whiz with Eazy Cheese.
Cheese Whiz is in a jar.  Easy Cheese is the stuff that sprays out of a can.

This was kind of a nice feel-good "maybe the country isn't doomed" piece, until it got to the part where the guy's two brothers and two sons died to anti-dairy terrorism. Wtf terrorists, seriously just wtf?

"It's so good, even the Taliban helps deliver it."

Does that answer your question?

Actually... I always did wonder how the US government managed to export so much heroin out of that place... or rather, what the heck was their cover story.  I suppose stashing it in crates that say "goat butter" is as good a method as any.
