Call me wacky...

...but I'm gonna go with the guys... who DON'T turn their kids into improvised explosive devices...

"As Golda Meir (allegedly) said decades ago: Peace will come when the Arabs will love their children more than they hate us."

LAST WORD: Payback is a cold, heartless bitch
-- KANDAHAR, Afghanistan -- The Afghan National Army says its soldiers destroyed three suspected bomb-making compounds and killed a person believed to be planting roadside bombs during a recent operation.

Col. Ahmad Habibi told reporters at Kandahar Airfield the mission was planned and executed by the Afghan army under the tutelage of Canadian military mentors.

I've never been much for the feminist argument of a patriarchal society being the cause of all our troubles. But when you look at the Arab/Moslem world....maybe there is a point there?

Maybe you can explain to me why we're in Afghanistan? There's no helping these people and we'll never conquer the place.

"cc-nonymous says... no helping these people"

hey goofus... why don't you go iron your collection of che t-shirts.

i mean... where should i start?

"Improvements in medical care since the Taliban fell five years ago have led to a marked decrease in Afghanistan's infant mortality rates - 40,000 fewer infant deaths a year."

but nothing i could say is gonna stop you from smearing your shit all over the walls... is it?


Kathy Shaidle said...

Actually, I agree with anonymous. What's the point of "increasing the infant mortality rate" of backward people who want us dead?

And I don't wear a Che shirt, as you know.

Palestinians voted for this outcome by electing Hamas. Israel, Egypt, other Arab countries and the international community are respecting their decision to vote for violence by either responding with violence in kind or not seriously condemning the violence necessary to communicate with Hamas.

"kathy says... And I don't wear a Che shirt, as you know."

sorry kath... you're entitled to your opinion, but even if i wasn't an atheist... i'd have a hard time subscribing to "kill 'em all... let god sort 'em out."

i'm totally on side with self-defense... not so much with "mugabe type" solutions.

sometimes, you do what you can.

The West, Canada included, cannot allow Afghanistan to become a base for international terrorist operations again.

Either we do what we're doing now, democratize and civilize the place - an incredibly difficult task, or we kill every last one of them - a 'Stalin solution'.

It is politically difficult to go in with the best of intentions for Afghanis but so far the majority of Westerners understand the necessity, implementing a 'Stalin solution' would require an amount of political capital not currently held by any Western leader.

I hardly think that Mr. & Mrs. Joe Mahmood in Armpit Afghanistan crawl out of their mud hut in the a.m. and say..."gotta kill us some infidels today"...I don't think that would be on the top of their agenda...or anywhere on the agenda.

Neo Conservative said...

"mahmood says... crawl out of their mud hut in the a.m. and say..."gotta kill us some infidels today"

the fact is... the majority of these people have a hard time finding enough food and potable water to keep their families alive.

that's why they're so susceptible to becoming raggedy-assed, amateur "gunnies" for the local drug lords... and also why these donkeyheads use ieds & don't stand and fight.

let's also remember af'stan supplies most of the world's opium for heroin... a cancer on our streets.

just another reason to get the job done once and for all.

It's a dirty job, but someone had to introduce civilization and forward thinking to islam.

The world could not allow the barbarism, death and destruction, known as islam to go unchecked forever. islam has to be tweaked to ensure the evil and stupidity of that death cult, does not spread.

You all don't have a clue--a clue--what you are talking about. Not saying I do. But I have the sense to shut up.

Neo Conservative said...

"rob budde says... But I have the sense to shut up."

well, maybe you do now, rob... but, let's face it, you had to learn that lesson... "the hard way".


JA Goneaux said...

I'd like to think that I have a clue, vis a vis Afghanistan:

All the journalists who barely covered Iraq are now barely covering Afghanistan. Re-writing Taliban press releases, mostly.

As with Viet Nam and the Viet Cong, there is no way they could win strategically. But they won politically.

The Taliban know this. They know they can't do anything militarily. Hence the suicide bombs and IEDs.

Some warriors.

Neo Conservative said...

"jag says... Hence the suicide bombs and IEDs."

and exactly why is it, so few people on the left side of the spectrum are asking these dopes... "hey omar... how's that workin' for ya?"

Robbie, let me explain to you what is going on.

The hamasses, with the help of Iran and Syria, want to obliterate Israel and kill every man, woman and child that are Jewish. This is their sole purpose. They are not alone in this quest.

Israel, not wanting this to happen are fighting back. Israel will not stop until the hamasses are destroyed, and then they will just call out, loud and clear to the world of islam....NEXT!
