Taliban Kill Teenage Boy For Teaching English

A sixteen year-old Afghan boy was teaching his classmates English when Taliban soldiers stormed into the school and dragged the boy outside where he was then killed. Police arrived shortly after the incident and killed two members of the Taliban. The leadership of the Taliban has denied responsibility for the murder, but this tends to be standard practice whenever the organization is caught doing an unpopular killing. The Afghan Taliban is now at the stage where a central leadership is lacking so small units undertake operations without direction or control. Most fighting against the Taliban is now occurring in southern regions of Afghanistan.

There is scant doubt the present situation is becoming more dangerous for the people of Afghanistan and coalition forces. The US refused in 2001 to completely demolish the Taliban and allowed them to escape into Pakistan. It is now a “Catch-22″ in which as Pakistan descends into chaos it becomes increasingly more difficult to eliminate Taliban hideouts in Pakistan. The government of Afghanistan is under funded, lacking sufficient troops, and increasingly unpopular with its poppy eradication program.

    Shhhhhhhh… be quiet little college student. We have a planet to run and don’t have anymore time to listen to your whining and misguided musings..

    the government “refused” to crush the Taliban huh?? They just didn’t feel like it..

    Do you liberal idiots just say the first thing that comes to mind? Does it make you feel good to lie and warp in order to rage against the machine that shunned you?? You are going to have a very frustrating and sad life here in our country.

    Even the NY Times is finally admitting that we’re winning the war. What are you going to do now??

    Perhaps the editors of the NY Times have fallen victim to a neocon brain-washing conspiracy.. Who knows?? Just make something up.. Whatever makes you feel OK..

    You apparently forgot that Osama bin Laden was trapped in the mountains and all it required was for a large American force to be dispatched to wipe him out. Yes, we liberals hate the Taliban, you conservatives have done more to spread terrorism in the world than any other force in the world. I believe Bush is being awarded a medal by the Taliban for saving their butts and being the best recruiter they have.
