The sound of silence

Tired of getting their asses kicked every time they tried fighting actual soldiers... the jihadis have fallen back on a favorite tactic... kidnapping unarmed women.

-- KANDAHAR, Afghanistan (AP) -- Gunmen kidnapped a burqa-clad American aid worker and her driver in southern Afghanistan's largest city early Saturday, the latest in a series of kidnappings of foreigners in the troubled country.

Cyd Mizell, who worked in Kandahar for the Asian Rural Life Development Foundation, was snatched from a residential neighborhood as she was on her way to work.
That's some Religion of Peace.

Who exactly is this woman... this horrendous enemy of Islam?
A professor at Kandahar University, Mohammad Gul, said Mizell taught English at the university and gave embroidery lessons at a girl's school.

"She is a very patient and calm woman," Gul said. "She was always thinking about Afghanistan's future."

The Asian Rural Life Development Foundation runs food-for-work, irrigation rehabilitation, health care and restoration projects around Kandahar, according to the group's Web site. The group also has projects in Vietnam, China, Myanmar, and Sri Lanka.
Well, of course... what right-thinking jihadi wants anything to do... with stuff like that?

Funny... I'm not hearing anything from the usually rabidly vociferous Taliban Jack. Aren't these kidnappers the very people Jacko is always saying he wants to negotiate with?

Suddenly the poster boy for the downtrodden third world can't find anything to say?

Funny how that works.

Taliban jack will some-how some-way turn this into a partisan fight and blame it on Harper.

The news media told us so! The news media said . . . oh uh yeah.

The news media is full of people that only 'write about a desired reality' and don't care for the real thing. (real conservative)

It's disgusting that Jack Layton cares so little about the girls and women of Afghanistan that just to score a few points in the media, he would allow these women to be raped, murdered and brutalized. Jack Layton is a pig.

while we're on the subject of af'stan... it seems jack's not so good when it comes to facts... or even straight talk...

"It means New Democratic Party leader Jack Layton will have to stop the hippie-speak about "George Bush's war" and start brushing up on some basic facts.

Reacting to the panel's report Tuesday, Layton's first words, in an official statement, were: "For six years, the Liberals and Conservatives have had Canada involved in a counter-insurgency combat mission in southern Afghanistan."

Actually, it was only a little more than two years ago that Canadian soldiers finally moved out of Kabul to take over in Kandahar.

jacko's gonna have to brush up on his facts... and perhaps this time, he should read slower.
