    They can see the truth that is found in the post. That being, we do not glorify terrorists in our ranks - we prosecute them; we're different. You think the Taliban would prosecute their own for such things? They ordered such things. The difference will be obvious; it already is.

    Even if they could the average afghani can't read. Of course...that's the average afghani male. If the female can read she gets the bad kind of stoned.

    They have no media to examine all the evidence and decide for themselves. They are compelled to simply concur with whatever their elders tell them. Questioning an elder riscs execution. Even the rare few who have access to the rest of the world in some form are still compelled to say and act in certain ways so as to keep harm from befouling their families.

    It's easy to distance yourself and claim no ties when things are difficult... it takes courage and honor to do it even when things are bad. I don't know the guy, he may be nutty as a fruitcake but he's still one of my own. He needs help and he must pay for his actions.

    Help? A dogs death via bullet to the skull in the street is help enough. The poor thing! He hated Muslims and afghans so much he slaughtered families in their sleep with US military property. If he was killing Americans you'd want him deep fried. He's killing afghans and he is merely further on the slope that finds them less than human as you. The mufti should have his head on a stick.

    There is no courage or honor in killing women and children in their sleep. Its just too bad that he will not be the only one to pay for his actions.

    Amen. If only the people that trip over themselves to excuse and justify the acts of terrorists were that plain spoken and direct instead of continually offering pathetic mealy mouthed excuses about how unfair life is and the occupation and its not all Muslims and blah blah blah...

    'Like'...a thousand times 'like'. And of course you will be sure to jump in and condemn every terrorist act in the same manner...I have faith in you...so...like in advance...

    I have never once condoned terrorism, no matter the flag under which it is done.

    It's also too bad individuals abandon others when something bad happens.
