Love the video, but this is not an accurate representation of Afghan food. That is the dietary necessity of 1,200 people in a land of 55million

If they were never invaded then they must have following nature religion only , no religion i guess there ??
sujaysukumar123 (6 months ago)
Best people in the world live here, but because of its important Geo strategic location, many world powers tried to destroy and corrupt the people and the culture by distributing guns, arms and extreme ideologies.

Is this really Afghanistan..??..I Doubt this.
Waleed Ahmed (6 months ago)
Sunil Thakur what makes you doubt it? And yes this is Afghanistan. If you think they physically look different it’s because afghans come in a couple of different faces. We have pathans, farsibanan and the hazara people.

That makes Turkish people cry. Same words, same names.
Dijahtal Arts (6 months ago)
I was in Afghanistan in 74. It was the worst food in the world. 'You are what you eat and you end up dead meat.' A once Buddhist country forcibly converted to Islam this video glamourises a truly awful country. The fat tailed sheep referred to are common to Africa.
Wothanar (4 months ago)
True, The Buddhist art and statues were completely destroyed too. A genocide the was swept under the rug.

So make sense if these innocent peoples invaded by outsider then raise their weapon to protect their homeland. They called as terorrist by US and their allies but for me they are true heroes. Much love from Indonesia.

The guy must be French with a name like Matthieu and his accent
2380Shaw (6 months ago)
You must be the kind of person that finds anything and everything "racist and offensive".
2380Shaw (6 months ago)
@CagedLadie Not hate. I was just guessing. I looked up the guys name and he is French. Im taking French and also part French Canadian. Why assume hate?
CagedLadie (6 months ago)

These are Kyrgyz people . They immigrated from Kyrgyzstan during 1917 Russian revolution. At that time Central Asia was part of Russian Empire.

Skinny Bob (6 months ago)
What a wretched lifestyle with no respect for animals. Mind, you they've little respect for children either because they marry them off children to adult men at a very young age who then race them. We call that child abuse in the west, but hey... let's not let that get in he way of a fairytale narrative. This is why I gave up on NG. I realised when I was 15 that it was all 'cleasned'' fairy stories for a western middle class consumption and curiosity.

They need some diversity; give them Jewish Marxism.
They are not migrating because they know what awaits for them down the plains.
