This is what goes on in Afghanistan in 2012.

A shot rings out, but the burqa-clad woman sitting on the rocky ground does not respond. The man pointing a rifle at her from a few feet away lets loose another round, but still there is no reaction. He fires a third shot, and finally the woman slumps backwards.

But the man fires another shot. And another. And another. Nine shots in all. Around him, dozens of men on a hillside cheer: “God is great!”

This is the Taliban in action. You will be aware that it is US and UK government policy to try and get the Taliban into the Afghan Government. I think they should be sent into eternity myself  – but our politicians lack the will. So WHY are our armed forced wasting their precious lives on these passionate Islamists who kill their women as if they were animals?

  1. Just when you think you’ve heard the worst story from Afghanistan, up comes an even worse one.

    In this case, there was apparently a dispute between two Teleban warlords about which of them was to get this woman. To settle it, they simply killed her.

  2. As an illustration of the validity of liberal opinion that, “all cultures are of equal value” this takes some beating..
    Ah! my brave and noble lads who spout such nonsense! Here’s a one way ticket to a third world culture of your choice…

    Yep, one that doesn’t believe there’s such a thing as human rights.

    As always, war is a racket and some people are making alot of money from it. As to what prevents our forces from coming home, well it’s cowardice. Politicians would prefer that our young men and women be killed rather than admit they were wrong. Peter Hitchens today is bang on:

    Only one thing prevents an immediate exit from this worse-than-pointless pit of grief and loss.

    It is Mr Slippery’s cowardly refusal to admit that the whole deployment was a stupid mistake, and that his braying support for it, trumpeted in the Murdoch press, was the price he paid for the backing of the Sun newspaper during his fraudulent Election campaign.

  5. For once I must agree with Peter Hitchens. Murdoch is a long-time war-mongerer, and his media empire is now demanding an attack on Iran.
