Horror... Horror has a face... and you must make a friend of horror. Horror and moral terror are your friends. If they are not, then they are enemies to be feared. They are truly enemies! I remember when I was with Special Forces... seems a thousand centuries ago. We went into a camp to inoculate some children. We left the camp after we had inoculated the children for polio, and this old man came running after us and he was crying. He couldn't see. We went back there, and they had come and hacked off every inoculated arm. There they were in a pile. A pile of little arms. And I remember... I... I... I cried, I wept like some grandmother.

I suppose they justify it by saying that the crippled and dead polio children are all martyrs for Allah?
 
2012-06-18 10:08:09 AM  
So these asshats threaten the free world with letting their own children die of polio or become cripples. Yeah, religious fanatics do get more evil than that, but not by much.
 
2012-06-18 10:08:51 AM  
That's a wonderfully nuanced take on, "Stop killing us or we will block vaccinations to children," there subby.

Guess who just signed up for more drone strikes. If they want their children to die horrible, 100% preventable deaths; then let them. Maybe that will finally convince the people thaalthea taliban are not their friends.

Dear Taliban,

fark you.

Right....

So this is the kind of war they want us to be waging? B-52's dropping 2000lb mk-84 unguided bombs by the thousand to destroy a single target?
upload.wikimedia.org

Or, We could send a single one of these and drop a single Laser guided bomb to destroy a target.
twistedsifter.sifter.netdna-cdn.com

Hell, We're so good at targeting LGB's and JDAM's these days, we sometimes just fill the bomb with cement and rely on kinetic impact alone to take out the target.

Now. I understand wanting an end to the killing. That's a completely legitimate request. Stop bombing us.

Asking us to stop using precision munitions is just requesting us to kill more people by not using guided weapons.

I'd like if we stopped bombing entirely, but since we cannot do that, we should probably keep using the drones.

From a purely one-dimensional view, you'd be pretty pissed if unmanned aircraft constantly shook your homes with bomb drops or missile strikes. Couple that with being a Pakistani "leader", a resident in one of only 3 countries on the entire planet to not have eradicated polio, and...well, there's your result.
It'd just be cheaper to disguise a giant plane as a mosque, invite everyone, then fly it somewhere else. Make them France's problem or something. They have nothing else to do anyways.

And those are mk-82 bombs, and 47 rather than a thousand.

WelldeadLink: And those are mk-82 bombs, and 47 rather than a thousand.


Well yes, But the B-2 can carry the Mk-84, and we can drop thousands given enough B-2s and enough sorties. Saturation bombing takes more then one bombing raid and one bomber.

I figured if we were going to talk about total war, we should haul out the big bombs, not the wimpy MK-82's.

Once we're done with the B-2's, lets fly some C-130's over and drop MOABs. Those are unguided too. that makes them OK in the Talibans eyes yes?

Nana's Vibrator: From a purely one-dimensional view, you'd be pretty pissed if unmanned aircraft constantly shook your homes with bomb drops or missile strikes.


And, assuming they won't stop until the "war" is over - wouldn't you rather they used targeted munitions than carpet-bombs? Or does the Taliban just want the US to fill their role of "The Great Satan" by indiscriminately killing everyone, not just indiscriminately killing everyone within ~9 meters of a suspected terrorist?

What's the Taliban really saying here? "Stop using methods of attacking us that keep your troops off the battlefield. It's not fair that you're shooting at/bombing our 'troops', but we only get to fire at your paper planes!"

Boo farkity hoo.

// the problem is when innocent people find themselves within ~9m of a suspected terrorist because it's market day and both terrorists and civilians shop at Jawad's Jam-boree on Tuesdays
// half-price peach jam on Tuesdays at Jawad's

I think the issue is that by not vaccinating against polio, they're essentially creating a stock of polio. Think of it like biological warfare, 13th century-style.

It could breed a new strain we aren't resistant too. Also, herd immunity isn't perfect. If you have enough un-vaccinated people, it could still spread.

We will have to build a wall around them and not let anyone out till the screaming and gunfire stops.

Not everyone. The anti-vaccers do not have it. Although again, that would be natural selection, which I am quite fine with.
