This is getting so tiresome... Stories like that make me lose hope in humanity...
RIP to that woman, to other women, and everyone that is or would suffer from a taliban return.
So it could be that the "Taliban" doing those atrocities may not even be Afghan but "foreign volunteers" being overly zealous to enforce their view of religion ?
If the locals want to stop this, more power to them !
It is known that many "talibans" come from Pakistan.
Isnīt Hezb-i-Islami recruiting foreign jihadists from -stans, Caucasus, Gulf and other countries on regularly basis?
It seems that Hezb-I-Islami has suddenly started taking an interest in the Kashmir jihad as was shown by a recent Jihadi Summit in where else but Pakistan and that also in Rawalpindi, where ironically the Pakistani Army HQ (the most powerful institution in the country is located)
http://tribune.com.pk/story/405671/j...in-rawalpindi/ISLAMABAD: Militants fighting Indian rule in Kashmir and US-led foreign forces in Afghanistan are brazenly raising funds and recruiting potential fighters in cities and towns of Pakistan.
Al-Badr Mujahideen, a breakaway faction of Hizbul Mujahideen group, organised a two-day ‘Shuada Conference’ in the Swan Adda area of Rawalpindi on Sunday to seek recruits and raise funds.
The group’s chief Bakht Zameen Khan told 1,000-plus supporters at the conference that his commanders have sought resources to keep the ‘jihad’ going in Kashmir and Afghanistan.
“Our commanders in Kashmir and Afghanistan say they will carry out big attacks if they are provided with resources. They have the spirit but they are facing a shortage of supplies.”
The group’s supporters from Punjab, Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa and Azad Jammu and Kashmir attended the conference where Gulbuddin Hekmatyar’s Hizb-e-Islami Afghanistan (HIA) and Al Badar Mujahideen had set up stalls to sell propaganda CDs and ‘jihadi’ literature.
Am I the only one who's walking around with the idea that maybe it's just better to nuke Afghanistan and Pakistan?
