    yep. really just one clear condition - rein in the taliban politically and militarily so they cannot be a terrorist threat to anyone including their fellow citizens, afghanis and the west.

    As it stands, I am pretty sure that is what every Country does.
    Or are you saying the U.S. should be different, and not seek conditions favorable to it?

    Pretty much. Someone may choose to live their life as a serial killer but that doesn't mean the rest of society has to allow that.

    Ahhh!

    So that really wasn't votes for option one, but actual votes for option two.

    In the face? Now I think I can provide a meaningful interpretation: they couldn't understand why she shaved her beard.

    I never made any such assertion. It's sick what the Taliban is doing, but I don't think that the US should intervene right now. My personal opinion, if you want to go for it. Kick some Taliban ass!

    I'm kind of on the fence on this one. On the one hand I think we should only be involved in matters of strategic interest to us, but on the other hand I feel there are some things that are so bad that we simply can't over look them.

    Didn't say you did. I was just asking a question.

    Which is it?

    If they do, it doesn't matter.

    If they don't, then we "as in a collective world we", need to be involved in a little more policing action. An not be restrained when doing it.


    So which route do we take?
    I would give them all individual free credit, and when all their farms are mortgaged to no return, I would package them and sell them to the highest bidder. Then, their chauvinist men will be in the same shoes as their abused women. What is even more interesting, those girls don't want to be saved.
