    Because of the turn over, it will probably get worse, before it gets better, time to leave.

    I just do not understand the intolerance... I really can't wrap my little brain around it. They (that part of the world) have been killing each other since the beginning of time over who believes what.. ideology. Does nobody else get that WE are all on the SAME ROCK and that WILL NEVER CHANGE. I do not see it getting "better" anytime soon. :(

    Didn’t even see this on the tv news nor yahoo news, wonder why it’s being suppressed.

    We've been fighting the Taliban for almost 20 years, a group that our C.I.A. created, you'd think we'd have a way to wipe these fu@k3r5 out!!!!

    Why would they, it’s job security. Create a boogie man and you can justify spending tax dollars fighting it.

    FWIW, we were supplying the Northern Alliance (Masoud), which was not Taliban. They were Mujahidin.

    I just got done reading The Horse Soldiers of Afghanistan, hoe right after 9-11 CIA and special forces went in and helped the local warlords come together and fight the Taliban. The stuff the Taliban did to people and still do are war crimes (torture and mutilation) and they do need to be wiped out completely, I can't believe we are negotiating with them. Would be like negotiating with Hitler after you knew he wiped out Jews, gypsies and mentally retarded people. What are they thinking? The book was one of the best war books I have ever read, I don't recall hearing much about what they did when they were over their, but the impact they made was huge. Afghanistan was a modern country in the 70's, the Taliban have taken them back hundreds of years. Hard to believe a modern prosperous country that people loved has been reduced to what it is today.
