...but was he a spy?
/straight to hell
People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.
All outrage aside, I'm really sick of all of these media outlets labeling all of these different groups as "the Talib'an". The situation is not that simple and to water it down like that completely hides the complex dynamics going on between these different groups and the situation in general. All I ask of everyone is that next time they read something about "the Talib'an" they actually wonder about this issue, because it is very important in the context of events.
"I do not claim that every incident in the history of empire can be explained in directly economic terms. Economic interests are filtered through a political process, policies are implemented by a complex state apparatus, and the whole system generates its own momentum."

Actually when people take things to extreme in any religion is bad, but do I blame the whole group for some bad apples in a bunch no I do not blame every person in that religion.
God this is outrageous that a little boy would be hanged just because they thought he was a spy. May that little boy rest in peace know that he is a way from those monsters who did this too him, Just think how scared he must have been during this makes my heart break.

There will always be radicals. It's just a matter of whether they can be justified to influence the majority and have power like they currently have. We've seen this across the full spectrum of religions over human history.
The pivotal Q is this: will the majority of Muslims... those that don't want to return to the stone age, do enough to prevent the extremists from going all the way?

Anytime you want to compare freedom in Christian dominated countries vs Muslim or compare deaths in the name of either religion, let us know.
We will bury you with the reality you are fighting so hard to ignore.

Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.
That's the way they roll.
