"Explosions in Jalalabad and in Kabul appear to be work of ISIL-K remnants," a Taliban source said, referring to the Islamic State in Khorasan Province armed group, also known as ISKP (ISIS-K). The senior source added that the Taliban had opened an investigation into the attacks "and culprits will be brought to justice".

It's nice to know that since we're out, we won't have to drone any kids in retaliation.

#1 well we don't have to but we still can if we want to.

What do you call it when you blow up a family in their courtyard.

I'm not sure but when they do it it's called terrorism.

"I'm not sure but when they do it it's called terrorism."

Reagan called them Freedom Fighters.

But that was when they were blowing up stuff over there.

If we'd have carpet-bombed it to a moonscape in 2002 and never went into Iraq imagine the world now.

It was already a moonscape. That's why the war moved to Iraq, at least they had some stuff worth bombing.

Oh FCS, Yes no fan of the taliban but when Bin Laden and his ilk, and the CIA show up to help remove the godless soviets it isn't surprising that they may have been welcome to hang out.

How about Pakistan? Moonscape?Hiding place of everyone. Saudi financed madrasses with students bobbing away as if they were at the wailing wall.

How about the Saudis themselves? The Wahhabi protectors of women and financiers of the whole shebang. Moonscape?

The US troops stationed by the holy cities in Saudi is what upset Bin laden

" how do I know that? Becsuse that's what he ------- said"
David Cross.

There had to be another way.

Yes, if I recall correctly, that was one the reasons given by Bush's advisors when they recommended that he attack Iraq, because (I think it was Rumsfeld who said it), that there were better targets in Iraq versus Afghanistan.

Afghanistan sells opium.

Well the British may have freed their slaves and compensated the owners, at the same time they were the major producers of opium.
The Chinese had silver,silks, tea ,porcelin ,etc. the foriegnor had nothing to offer. Hence opium and they fought wars to sell it.

Yeah a long time ago. I know.

Actually, it was pretty true.

Or probably the freedoms of women.

The choices our women have. To choose who they want and what they want to wear.

So yea, they do hate alot of our freedoms.

Ask an afghani woman right now, she doesnt have those freedoms..
