The Taliban just executed hostages in Afghanistan. (Jcat also mentioned this one) http://www.forbes.com/business/feeds...fx3988222.html
(I tried really hard to find an article you would actually read without dismissing it as biased)

Strange that a group that "isn't in control" is negotiating with other country's presidents.

We NEVER actually succeeded in getting the Taliban out of Afghanistan. We pushed them out of power and had them running, but there are areas controlled by the drug lords (who have their own armies) and elsewhere that we have never controlled.

EXACTLy, we pushed them out of power and had them on the run.

I never said we killed every single one of the Taliban and AlQueda in Afghanistan. I guess that is what it will take before people can say we achieved our objective there.


The Taliban are not more powerful in Afghanistan than they were pre 9-11 Kit.
They are not in control of the country's govt. They are just coming back in to kill more people.

I guess we should not have retaliated in any way, shape or form after 9-11.
We should have just rolled over and played dead. Now, THAT would have prevented any more future attacks. Wave that white flag.

Your use of the past tense was appropriate. We would have acheived our objective had we not abandoned Afghanistan half-way and sent all resources to Iraq.

Absolutely. Why is it our President and his Secretary of Defense couldn't figure that out?

Doesn't change the fact that Obama is a nutcase and doesn't have a clue what he is talking about IMO.

Yeah, let's go bomb Pakistan.

So, in other words, you are NOT in favour of getting Al-Qaeda, and you ARE in favour of mincing around elsewhere and allowing them to rise to greater heights of power. Hmmm.

At least you conceded you were wrong about Al-Qaeda, Iraq, and the state of Afghanistan.

No way. I will concede when the Taliban is running the government of Afghanistan once again. We did good work over there and I am proud of it.

What about when Bush says that he might go into Pakistan himself...

Oh, right, he has
Quote:
President Bush said Monday that with the right intelligence U.S. and Pakistan governments can take out al Qaeda leaders, and he wouldn't say whether he would consult first with Pakistan before ordering U.S. forces to act on their own.

He's a bad boy.

And you LOVE him. Much like someone would love a wayward son who continued to DO wrong but could never BE wrong. Ahhh, love is blind.
