Major Zeigenfuss On The Afghan Koran Burnings

Here. I know you're already probably reading him but if not he's definitely worth your time. It's his take on the Koran burnings and the ensuing riots and killings as well as the Afghan and American response. You know, from a soldier who is actually over there and is actually knowledgable about the situation, conditions and people involved. A man who knows what happened, why it happened and how everyone responded (or didn't as the case may be).

Thanks for the info Sir and I agree. It's the only sure solution. Burn it down and start all over again.

Watching the groveling of the General, the SecState, SecDef and Prez before these scum is tending to grind me down. There needs to be a return to medieval processes when dealing with medieval people.

Maybe we can convince China to build a great wall? Barring penning up these people I don't see that we have a lot of alternatives. We can do it now, while we're there and still in a position of relative strength or we can do it 5 years and another 10,000 lives down the road. That it will come to that is, I think, a given. After we leave the Taliban will return. The next great jihadist will come forth and the next catastrophic attack on America will occur just as surely as the sun rises. Then we'll be back doing the same old thing in the same old way.

Just like the man said nuke them all from space and let god sort them out.

I've already lost one son over there so I could easily pull the fucking trigger. We didn't get any apology when he was killed and he was worth more than the whole middle east oil included for hells sake.
