    Taliban shoot woman 9 times in public execution as men cheer

    July 8, 2012

    Officials in Afghanistan, where the amateur video was filmed, believe the woman was executed because two Taliban commanders had a dispute over her,both apparently had some kind of relationship with the woman.."In order to save face," they accused her of adultery and shot her.

    Interesting to note that the two Taliban commanders were later shot by a third.

    Unless and until Taliban leaders comdemn this kind of murderous behavior, they should be shunned by every civilized nation on earth.

    Shunned while innocent women continue to be killed for the most trivial (if not completely made-up) offenses?
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    Kabul, Afghanistan (CNN) -- A shot rings out, but the burqa-clad woman sitting on the rocky ground does not respond.

    The man pointing a rifle at her from a few feet away lets loose another round, but still there is no reaction.

    He fires a third shot, and finally the woman slumps backwards.

    But the man fires another shot.

    And another. And another.

    Nine shots in all.

    Around him, dozens of men on a hillside cheer: "God is great!"
    But it's a "peaceful" religion.

    I remain hopeful, despite my opposition to the pullout plan for a variety of reasons, that continued Western support, and an incessant and aggressive American drone and intelligence campaign will be able to prevent a significant Taliban takeover and advance. Moreover that it will force eventual negotiations on terms that force large portions of the disparate contingents of the Taliban to make a negotiated peace on terms amenable to the central government and the continued existence of democratic governance. There are some excellent FA and FP articles that lend credence to hope in this approach. Particularly with regard to the drone campaign that has wrought terrible damage on the Afghan Taliban and the Tehrek-i-Taliban and has been the source of plummeting morale.

    Well, I'm not for sending our boys to engage them, if that's what you mean.

    Take them off the world stage, starve their financing and let them hide under rocks and in caves where they belong.
