I'm so utterly disgusted.
I have to go away from all this for awhile or I'm going to end up moving to afghanistan just so I can dance in the streets on tv with all the zealots who hate the people in this country.
Because THIS IS WHAT I AM SEEING of the people in this country.
And this is what they see.
and we wonder why they hate us.

You all need to get a fucking clue and settle down. It doesn't matter what Retard American #11314 says in their journal, we have no real say in what actions our elected officials take.

What you should be doing is praying to God and thanking him for your pampered American ass still being alive. And pray that it stays that way.

Yes. Because god had everything to do with this in the first place. No really.
If you want me to thank god for my life, that means god is the one who made sure I'm still alive. So I should also be thanking god for making sure that all those other people died. And I should be thanking god for the destruction and torment. And I should be thanking god that thousands of people are dead because someone else thought that their god's wishes took precedence over every other human life on the planet.
yay god!

Fuck off with your god talk. It's not welcome here and it's not meaningful or noteworthy.
YOU go pray for your pampered american ass. You'll be the only one doing so.

He's not saying it very nice, but I pretty much agree with him on the substance of it. We find 'em, we hunt 'em down, we rub 'em out. (If by some miracle it turns out to be just as easy to just capture them, I'm willing to see them all in prison for the rest of their lives instead of killed.)

I don't claim to be on any kind of moral high ground here, but then I don't feel a need to. It's basically the same thing that I do to wasp nests and black widow spiders I find around the house.

There will never be any justification for what happened in your country. As there will never be any justification for what the American government had done to many Third World countries in the name of justice and democracy. Many people, including your president, think there should be war. It's not war that's going to happen. It will be a massacre of innocent civilians whose only fault is that they're Arabs and have the same religion as those individuals who committed a horrible crime against innocent civilians in your country.

The Taliban does not practice the same religion as the rest of the Muslims in Afghanistan.
That's like saying that Unitarian Universalists are the same as Mormons.
The Taliban is the strictest, most merciliess mutation of the muslim faith. And they've proven to what lengths they will go again and again with the subjugation of the women in Afghanistan (a country they overtook by force), their actions against other faiths and their statements.
I am not advocating blasting them away.
I am not advocating war. But let's keep in mind exactly who it is we're talking about.

I agree with you. The Taliban is different from the Muslims in Afghanistan. However, what I'm saying is that when you start dropping bombs over Afghanistan, those bombs won't really distinguish between the Taliban and the Afghans, will they? Those bombs are aimed at Muslims, whether they be Afghan Muslims or Fundamentalists like the Taliban. And that's what makes the scenario of a war both scary and saddening.
