The Taliban are evil incarnate, and represent a role-model government that, unfortunately, many other radical Muslims aspire to. Constant vigilance is required.

Is everybody in the ME a member of the Taliban? Why do the people stand for it? To my way of thinking, radical Muslims shouldn't just have to fear the west. They should be fearing every daughter's father in the entire middle east.

The outright murder and assassination of women in Pakistan and other nations simply because they want an education and basic personal freedoms is outrageous. I have seen a few video's of these executions/murders and it makes my blood boil. The Taliban are the face of evil IMO and if they where all lined up in front of a firing squad I wouldn't have a problem with it at all.

You think drones make a difference to that ?

Well so do I - but you think it reduces the numbers - I think it increases them

Let's get this straight. Drone attacks increase the number of girls killed by the Taliban?

So their attacks on girls will not decrease if the drone attacks stop.

A smaller Taliban is a less dangerous Taliban and fewer attacks are the logical end to that!

So overall - yes - of course

I doubt that you understand radical groups as well as you claim, with that kind of statement.

Idiots.. These people are such tough guys that they fear a 14 year old girl. Must be their message isn't as correct as they would like everyone to think. Any political/religious movement that calls a peace loving 14 year old girl an enemy that must be killed has some serious problems. Of course, we already knew that. Hopefully, more people in Pakistan start to see that.
Well, at least they are helping us topple Assad. And they may have murdered our ambassador in Libya, but at least Gaddafi isn't there to keep our oil corporations in check.

well we have opposing ideas on how to decrease the problem - not unheard of!

I say if you have a fire, tossing a grenade or two on it might work for Red Adair on an oil well, but generally, it's the exeption that proves the rule!
