(Christian Science Monitor)   If you are a chopper pilot do not fly through bad weather. If you must fly through bad weather don't make an emergency landing. If you must make an emergency landing don't do it right next to a Taliban command post and get your passengers kidnapped   (csmonitor.com) divider line 32

How come we know there is a Taliban base in a former medical clinic and we haven't bombed it to oblivion before this happened?

stuhayes2010: How come we know there is a Taliban base in a former medical clinic and we haven't bombed it to oblivion before this happened?


that a medical clinic got discontinued is enough to bomb them back into the dark ages.

we need to fold our tent and leave. piss on Karzaiand his useless "government". tell him to dig up all the billions we had stolen and hire mercs. and tell the tailiban we do have drones and no compunction about using them. randomly, so they better not get too medieval on their womenfolk.
