#1 Victory is right around the corner! Year 18 going on 19, and it's going to be a doozy!

But hey, I heard on Rantburg that if they're goat herders, it's OK to kill them with smart bombs. Because their lives are worth nothing. To hell with the inherent dignity of all life.

#2 The [UN] report laid most of the blame for the spike at the feet of "anti-government elements" such as the Taliban

That says to me that your quarrel is with the Taliban’s lack of respect for goat herders, Herb. Go argue with them.

Also, if we want to protect the lives and inherent dignity of Afghan goat herders, it is necessary to kill as many Taliban as possible as quickly as we can manage. Dumb bombs are better than smart bombs for that purpose. Arc lights are better still.

#3 Poor Herb still doesn't realize two sides are fighting.

#4 To hell with the inherent dignity of all life.

I'm willing to honor the inherent dignity of life... just as long as said life isn't trying to kill me. But without that reciprocity, all bets are off. Garçon, more Arclight for my friends!
