#2 Are these the new kindler, gentler Talibunnies? 'Cause it's really hard to tell the difference.

#3 How is it that the fierce, vengeful Afghans we've heard about forever seem to mainly be with the Taliban? We never hear of our Afghan allies going into a village and executing the imams sponsoring the IEDs that are killing THEIR kids. I feel sorry for what's going to happen to the Afghanis who allied with us after we leave, but they're bringing it on themselves by demanding we play patty-cake with people who are shooting at us. If they really don't care what the bastards have done, are doing and will do to them and their families, and/or are just so scared of them that they won't stand up for US, or are so few that they dare not, then why are we there? Just nuke 'em from orbit (so to speak) next time (and sadly, there WILL be a next time.)
