If ever there were a story appropriate for the name of this blog, this is it. I’m ranting, raving, furiously mad over this article, NATO Allowed Taliban Official to Kabul: Patraeus:
NATO-led forces facilitated the passage of a senior Taliban commander to Kabul to hold talks with the Afghan government, the commander of U.S. and NATO troops in Afghanistan said on Friday.
U.S. General David Petraeus, commander of the International Security Assistance Force (ISAF), said the move was part of U.S. and NATO support for President Hamid Karzai's reconciliation discussions with the Taliban.
Reconciliation discussions with the Taliban?! What the hell is going on?! Shoot them! They’re the enemy!
It’s hard to believe our government could be anymore corrupt, irresponsible or flat-out gawd awful than it is already, but I know it can be. (See USSR, North Korea, Nazi Germany or Venezuela for examples.) >:-(
