    Afghan mission ends in death for 6 US, 2 Europeans, 2 Afghans; Taliban claim responsi

    KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) They hiked for more than 10 hours over rugged mountains unarmed and without security to bring medical care to isolated Afghan villagers until their humanitarian mission took a tragic turn.

    Ten members of the Christian medical team six Americans, two Afghans, one German and a Briton were gunned down in a gruesome slaughter that the Taliban said they carried out, alleging the volunteers were spying and trying to convert Muslims to Christianity. The gunmen spared an Afghan driver, who recited verses from the Islamic holy book Quran as he begged for his life.

    Team members doctors, nurses and logistics personnel were attacked as they were returning to Kabul after their two-week mission in the remote Parun valley of Nuristan province about 160 miles (260 kilometers) north of Kabul. They had decided to veer northward into Badakhshan province because they thought that would be the safest route back to Kabul, said Dirk Frans, director of the International Assistance Mission, which organized the team.

    Stupid arrogant fools. The Taliban doesn't care what "good" you are doing, you are cattle to be slaughtered. RIP, may God comfort your families.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    I don't think calling people who gave their lives trying to help others "arrogant" is really appropriate. These people knew they where risking their lives, and considered the good they could do worth that risk. That is bravery of a type that should be commended.

    The Taliban once again proves they are evil, and I cannot shed a single tear at the thought of the painful deaths coming their way.

    ****in eh.

    I may not be a big fan of the Afghan war. But Im even less of a fan of the Taliban. Buncha backward ass dip****s.

    Get as many of them as we can before we get outta there. They deserve nothing less then predator drone up the ass.

    Problem is I wish they'd stop being a bunch of cowards, stop hiding behind civilians and in their caves, and come out and face us. Buncha assholes.

    Rant over.

    Taliban = bad...

    Oh, and for those that called the Taliban "freedom fighters" in the Wikileaks thread...does this maybe make you think more about that? I hope so.

    I actually took it entirely wrong at first, since I could not believe some one would say that. I had to completely start my post over when it sank in what he said.

    Oh, I don't know.
    Perhaps it was the "stupid, arrogant fools" part.

    Because he is insulting people who chose to help those who had need, and died doing so.

    He's talking about the Taliban isn't he?

    In which case shouldn't you agree with Him?
