Well this video has certainly changed how i feel about the taliban. It's made me feel worse. Much worse. Are we forgetting all the abuses these terrorist have commited against women? Or the fact that although they are still humans, they are actively killing our troops?

Yes, I'll readily agree that our middle east meddling is pointless. We will never defeat a group of hardcore nationalist jihadists that use "shoot and scoot" tactics against our clumsy military brigade. But let's not overlook the atrocities that are being commited in afganistan right now.

noFX said it best in the song 'there's no fun in fundamentalism'
"There's no fun when praying on a mat
There's no fun being covered in black clothes in the desert
Unless you're Goth and into that,
But not if you're a woman who is treated like dog shit"

Back when I was over there, I came to a similar conclusion because they was working against the commies. I even came out of retirement to joins up with them. Turns out I was wrong.

I work with criminals. I was in the brig with some of them after they caught me. They ain't criminals 99% of the time. They have families and they talk to mom. And they rape children and kill people the other 1% of the time.

The Taliban, it turns out, are not such great fighters for civil liberties once they got the power, kind of like other revolutionary heroes like in Darfur, which I had a chat with recently. So they talk to mom? And hug their wife and kid? So did Hitler, Al Capone, and Genghis Khan. Does that make them all good people? Ain't the case.

And you know what always annoys me? How come no one shows any videos of cops or soldiers spending time with their families? I'm the bad guy now? This is why I blew up a gas station when I came back from 'Nam.

Peace in our life. Remember the call.

This is ridiculous. These people are giggling as they kill our soldiers. Am I supposed to think that they're just a bunch of pals because they have families? Think about the families of the Americans who are killed in Afghanistan and Iraq. Also, we can't blame all troops for the atrocities committed by a few. Hate the war, not the warrior.
