I don't disagree with your analysis but morally speaking I am extending them some sympathy because seems like coming up in Afghanistan would be pretty shit. You are basically between a rock and a hard place. The powers that be are basically: corrupt/inept government, radical religious right, imperialists. If you look at photos from the conflicts, you see Afghans on all sides fighting in leather dress shoes and sandals. I know a few Afghans who managed to emigrate to like India but I can't fault anybody for deciding to help the storm troopers. At least they might give you a pair of boots.
