#4 Dad knew many more people than his son would die if he complied with the Taliban.

#5 I agree with Ang on this one. The policeman should be considered a hero. He made a decision that shows the integrity needed to win this struggle. No one on the Taliban side has this moral fiber. I also look forward to reports of "shot while resisting arrest" that result from this story or "a dismembered corpse with signs of torture" story.

#7 And yet they insist that we negotiate with these creatures.

#8 #7: And yet they insist that we negotiate with these creatures. Posted by: CrazyFool|

I'd like to be in charge of the "negotiations". The first thing I'd do is napalm a few dozen villages - half in Afghanistan, half in Pakistan. Then I'd run a 6-ship ARCLIGHT strike down through the middle of Rawalpindi/Islamabad. Then I'd tell the Taliban/ISI/Pakistan they either surrender or I do the same thing to the rest of Pashtunistan/Pakistan. If they didn't surrender, unconditionally, I'd follow through. That's the ONLY way to negotiate with this kind of ingrained, inbred insanity.

#11 Remember the hideous technique al-Qaeda pulled in Iraq of kidnapping a young boy and roasting him alive, then offering him to his parents with the threat that unless they *supported* al-Qaeda, they would do much worse.

For some reason, this recruiting method didn't work too good.

I'm thinking along the lines of "mass grave discovered in field". 50 years later.

#13 OP, we need a Bruce Willis to do some 'negotiating', as he did in The Fifth Element. After shooting first then asking, okay now who else wants to negotiate.
