    Did people WANT to live under the Taliban barbarity? What percentage?
    Its a sad, sad day when an oppressive theocracy, one that forces women to wear burkas and treats them like property, is considered "freedom".

    Under what legitimate definition of "freedom" are women treated as the property of their husbands?

    And yet YOU argue that people that fight for the power to force this condition upon others are "freedom fighters".

    No, i argue one cannot define freedom fighting. It's too difficult.

    And i asked you whether fighting against western occupation is 'freedom fighting' but you disregard it.

    Yes Al Qaeda wants to impose Sharia but what gives them the strength to attempt it? The fact that western "crusaders" [as they like to call them] have invaded.

    Not at all.
    Are you fighting for the freedom of those you fight for?
    Actual freedom, not some version that allows you to oppress them according to your views?
    Then you are a freedom fighter. If not, then you are not.

    The Taliban, Hamas, Hizboolah, AQ, and the vast majority of the 'insurgents' in Iraq fall within the latter group.

    And i asked you whether fighting against western occupation is 'freedom fighting' but you disregard it.
    I did not. See above.

    Yes Al Qaeda wants to impose Sharia...
    Then they are not 'freedom fighters'. Period.

    I guess we'll have to agree to disagree on this one.

    If you disagree with me, then you necessarily argue that to live under an oppressive, brutal theocracy, one that forces women to wear burkas and treats them like the property of their husband, is to live free.

    I think fighting against soldiers who invaded can in some cases be classified as freedom fighting when its the soldiers that are the targets. You don't.

    That is why we disagree.
