How is the level of justice measured?
That's why I'm asking you how it is measured. If it were in relative terms, then it is meaningless.

Al Qaeda moved to Afghanistan from Libya after the Saudis rejected Bin Laden's offer to defend the Islamic Holy Land from Saddam Hussein's army. You are probably thinking about the Afghan resistance, which was given Stinger Missiles to shoot down Soviet Helicopters during the Cold War.
