    I'm of the long held belief that we should've never been there in the f***ing first place.

Their culture is not ready for change on a grand scale, or they would already be making the transition.
    I agree. We need to mind our own business. Their way of life is not ours and nothing we do, give, or force upon them will change their way of life until they as a people are willing to rise up and make those changes themselves.

    Easier said than done. We tried that against the Nazis, Fascists and Communists and finally there had to be a confrontation or millions more would have died.

    Fighting these ignorant religious nut cases on their home turf in the mountains in revenge for 9/11 can not be compared to fighting the nazis in WWII for the fate of the world.

    We're not fighting over millions of lives, we're fighting over pride, and we're wasting American soldiers and substantial funds in the process.

    Didn't America only get involved after the attack on Pearl Harbor. So it was in defense and retaliation of an attack on American soil not because of the loss of life overseas at the hands of Nazis....correct?

    The best solution to this problem is the Libertarian one (isn't it always?).

    The Pakistani government should just withdraw all police, border patrol, and military forces from Swat and recede its border to exclude that territory. Then Swat becomes a separate country.

    Once that's done, Pakistan should then fully legalize the private sale of guns to anyone, including automatic weapons.

    Then anyone in the world can just go to Pakistan, buy as many guns as he/she wants and walk/drive into Swat (assuming the Taliban let them in, which shouldn't be hard considering they won't have enough men to guard their new border effectively).

    Under the new system, it would be legal for Taliban to also purchase guns in Pakistan and take it back with them, depending on whether the gun store owners choose to sell to them. Ya think they will?

    If the Taliban want sovereignty, they must accept all that comes with it

    Excellent. The Taliban have gone too far this time, and incurred the wrath of at lest the Pakistanis. Maybe the Afgans will follow suit and start to root this evil from their society as well.

    But, throwing acid in the faces of little girls who dared to go to school didn't seem to be enough, nor was burning donated children's coats in the face of an Afgan winter. Maybe the third time will be the charm.

    Why do people bother starting threads like this? Everyone knows the Taliban murders women, children and men for wrong thinking or being the wrong gender or saying the wrong thing or not saying the right thing - and 1000 other reasons given for murder.

    However, the Taliban is also good at humiliating Western militaries. They are tactically superior to any military force on the planet. Time for the rest of the world to wake up and formulate better strategies.
