The devastation in Kabul took Amir's breath away. The buildings and streets had turned into rubble, and fatherless children begged on every street corner. When a red truck full of Talibs drove by, Amir was mesmerized by them for a minute. Soviet occupation has changed to Talib occupation. Most men have long beards and all women are covered up.
