It is a great tragedy that the jihadis feel the need to remind the world how demonic they really are:
Afghanistan's deadliest suicide attack since the Taliban regime's ouster killed 59 schoolchildren, while 96 other students were wounded in the blast, the Education Ministry spokesman said Friday.
The attack in the northern province of Baghlan on Tuesday killed at least 75 people. The dead children were ages eight to 18, said Zahoor Afghan, an Education Ministry spokesman.
Fortunately, the bad guys are ending up on the short end of the stick. The A.P. article tries to push along the narrative that Afghanistan is unraveling, but does manage to put some good news in the bad news paragraph at the end:
Violence in Afghanistan this year has been the deadliest since the 2001 invasion. More than 5,700 people, mostly militants, have died so far this year in insurgency-related violence, according to an Associated Press count based on figures from Afghan and Western officials. (bold emphasis added)
So let me get this straight: While this year has been the "deadliest" since United States retaliated for September 11, it has been particularly deadly for people who blow up schoolchildren.
I call that progress.
Interesting post. I know a lot of AP reporters--and they are certainly a bunch of bleeding heart Pelosi-loving Godless fags and dykes, I swear. ;-) Actually, they are a nice bunch of folks, and professionals. Unfortunately they do often refer to other homo sapiens as "people." Especially when in their hearts they feel they are doing God's work, just as much as Christian fanatics like the had of Blackwater. Better to be objective when dealing with fanatics and trivial fools on both sides (including those given such aid and comfort by our "allies" like Pakistan and Saudi Arabia).
I had lunch at Georgetown with Sebastian Junger (The Perfect Storm, A Murder in Belmont); he's spent about four months with some Rangers up in a hell hole Alamo-like sandbag fort in Afghanistan. Certainly not the airconditioned barracks in Iraq complete with Playstation 3 and Big Macs. Or literatre from right wing mega-churches. Crazy, crazy stuff up there. Forgotten stuff. Oh well...Junger's such a liberal tool, right? He won't tell this "correctly," eh?
Well, I'm off. Have to follow the unending saga of Britany's missed drug test while democracy--that strange griffin-like creature--is on hold in Pakistan. Perhaps our new Attorney General Judge Mukasey (I wonder if he knows Rudi G's other "hero" of 9-11, Mr. Kerik) can help rescue Benazir? i was thinking of writing one of my old colleaguesat DOJ to get a message to the Judge. See, the Chinese (buyers of our cheap money because raising taxes is so-so bad) and the North Koreans water-boarded my great uncle in 1952. No reason. He was just a frigging corporal in a newly de-segregated unit. Other than the water-boarding, which the uS Army did consider terrible torture, being a POW wasn't so bad when compared to the lovely company of the soon to be Red State old men in his unit, singing such songs of the South, of nooses and shotguns. Ahhhhhhhh...happy friday.
The name Junger didn't ring a bell, so I did a little google on him.
I found the above link. Look who else is on the show, and what they said.
Of course, notice the date.
When the locals realize that selling poppies may line their pockets at the expense of funding those who are killing all their own, either they will reduce it even at their own financial loss or the non growers will do it for them.
In years past, with this kind of barbaric behavior nations would have bonded together to purge them from the face of the earth.
It is a sad commentary on how little people value others in this day and age.
BUT we'll still have to do something about all the poppy in Afghanistan if we want to cut Al-Qaeda's legs from under them. Without that financial support, they'll have real trouble. To those who wonder how the Afghanis will survive without that "cash crop" I say they'll just have to find a better one. Or, you know, grow food crops.
