    Good to hear, 1 group of 100 declaring war is nothing.

    Lol, i just had an arguement with my friend, i hate it when people try and compare Israel to Somaliland. It doesn't work
    You're right, the two are NOT comparable. Israel's situation is unique, though that of Somailand is NOT unique - just unusual. Regardless, I support both.

    As for the KSA, I am in complete agreement with you here. Why we support them - and that support has been bipartisan for decades - is beyond me. It is an absolute disgrace.
    Which will probably be destroyed and Afghan Government overthrown

    I know that it is oil. Yet another reason we need to drill on U.S. soil and research alternative sources NOW.

    ME/Russia supply a large percentage of gas and oil - EU and US amongst the highest consumers of it.

    Taliban ban education for girls in Swat
    25/2008/December

    <snip>
    “All the private and government schools have been given a 15-day deadline to close down the female education facilities. They have also banned women from visiting markets,” Mohamed Osman, a school teacher and social worker, said. “We have no choice but to follow the orders. The government cannot give us protection. Taliban have established a parallel government in 90% area of the district and they execute everyone who opposes them,” he added.

    Rebels have blown up or torched hundreds of girls’ schools over the last 14 months while female teachers regularly receive threats. “From 9 in the morning till 3 in the afternoon, you can see military patrolling the streets of some towns. As they leave, Taliban take over and for the rest of the day and night they rule the area,” said Osman.

    The Taliban intend to treat females in Palistan exactly as they did in Afghanistan... as pariah's and property. As is obvious from their tenure in Afghanistan and the bolded quote above, this is not an empty threat. They will murder and maim to impose their fundamentalist version of Islam on the local populace.

    False. If the US were so worried about angering their Arab allies, I doubt we would support Israel as fervently as we do.

    I don't know if I will ever understand the mental east....oops.... I meant Middle East. All I can say is thank God over here we don't have Christians suicide bombing Muslims...or Jehovah Witness suicide bombing Hutterites...etc.!

    Maybe someone should start a new religion over there and teach their young children that if they grew up to kill a Taliban or Hezbolla believer they will recieve 73 virgins (to one up the muslims) if they are men or 73 Chip and Dale dancers if they are women. If they kill that 1 enemy in a mall with 100 people in which they don't know who's side they're on, they get a bonus "vibrating bed".

    I guess it's time for some Taliban turdbags to be delt with then.
