    They’re nothing but a bunch of ignorant thugs who need to oppress children in order to find someone they can feel superior to.

    Please! Read the Old Testament and see where these ideas come from? Like well, any woman who wears any article of men’s clothing must be stoned to death, just as any man who wears an item of women’s clothing!


    It get’s really tiresome the complaints, even though valid in today’s world, how “backward” Islam is supposed to be, when the same views are held by “observant” Jews, and many evangelical Christian sects. While the “death penalty exclusion” has made some progress, ostracism can be just as serious to some. Hindus of course also have “honor killings” still and that IS tragic.


    Of course, bombing folks with modern weapons, folks who’ve done NOTHING TO US, folks who are still armed mostly with obsolete weapons, in THEIR lands, as we invade them, is “sophistication”?

    Don’t forget there are Christians right here in this country want to do that too and other horrible things, all in your family Bible.

    Also read the New Testament – I suppose it’s reasonable to say that as people changed, God changed (regarding what He taught us), and now His people are to turn the other cheek. (That’s His PEOPLE, not a nation, which was what He established in the Old Testament.) There’s a lot more to say here, but not the space.
    Unfortunately, for a nation to win a war, as we must now, we have to understand that the enemy fighters get support and encouragement from the general population. Personally, I suspect that, unless some civilians are taken out, thereby reducing that support and encouragement for the fighters, a war will continue much longer than if not (resulting in likely more deaths). The Dem’s knew this in WW2, and that’s why we dropped the bombs. It’s not sophistication, it’s just what has to be done.

    There is a big difference between WW2 and the Global War on Terror, or whatever this week’s fashionable name is. WW2 was fought (at least from the Allies’ point of view) to stop a certifiably insane despot from continuing his imperialism and his ethnic cleansing.
    The Middle East wars were started because we wanted to punish an entire society for the sins of a very few. Human nature is such that you can’t make someone like you if you hit them with a stick. If you bomb the hell out of them, ruin what’s left of their infrastructure, and occupy their country for over a decade, all the while torturing and/or detaining their fellow countrymen for what seems like will be the rest of their lives, for some reason it doesn’t make them like us any better. If you take out the general population, a new and angrier one will take its place. This is a series of wars that cannot be won, regardless of amount of determination or firepower.
    Something else to ponder: We have seen how, for decades, women have been treated as poorly in right-wing fundamentalist Muslim cultures as farm animals. No education, no health care, can’t even be outdoors without a male escort, and that escort has to be a family member, and on and on. What did we do? Nothing.
    Then the Afghanis wanted to destroy giant ancient Buddha statues. Oh, the horror; the hue and cry. I recognize the historical value, but let’s be fair…what’s more important: humans or rocks?
    And until we can get the above points through our collective heads, I will continue to be embarrassed to be part of the human race.

    According to Saud Mehsud, a reporter for Reuters

    he and the overwhelming majority of Pakistani Muslims are furious about the shooting and determined to bring the shooters to justice.


    But who are we going to believe? Some Muslims actually in Pakistan, or the insightful Americans who comment here?

    I’m sure glad we don’t have any nuts who might go into a movie theater, school, or Sikh mosque and turn them into shooting galleries. We in this culture are of course much to sophisticated to have such a thing happen. After all, we control guns, nuts, and right-wing anti-government radicals who might park a U Haul in front of a federal building and blow it up, and the pre-schoolers inside.

    Trout are you for real? You’re blaming today’s christian religion for today’s Islamic barbarism?

    Yes, the old testament or Hebrew scriptures were chock full of rules and regulations for the Nation of Israel.

    But Christians are not bound by those laws and in these times do not “stone” anyone.

    What is tiresome is hearing you continue to excuse the hateful behavior toward women by one religious group because another one once did the same thing centuries ago.

    And here I thought you were “progressive” in your ideas.

    They certainly want all females not to be educated. They may not resort to killing them but they are of the same mind type and would kill their chances of become whomever they want to be.

    How can I being against their point of view be supporting it? Nonsense and bovine feces.

    It’s not hard to be completely outraged by the Taliban. It’s a little harder to know what to do about it.

    We knew about their cowardice for a long time. But they rule with fear and terror. How do you fight that? Not with guns, but with bravery and a clear message from the people. But the people – although fed up – are not ready to overcome their fears, partly because they are the Taliban (in the sense that they have relatives who are, or make business with them, or are sympathetic with some of the causes, like “Death to America”). These people need to be De-programmed before real change can set in…
