I agree. So long as we know that's what goes on however, and it's not all proud tribal warriors valiantly protecting their lands...
Anyone who believes the war in Afghanistan is all about saving lives has their head so buried in the sand it’s beyond comprehension.
Well it certainly is easier to bury your head in the sand, when it's CUT OFF.
I love how people can look beyond the atrocities and still find blame elsewhere. These beheadings were not against combatants. They were against their
Argh... why bother..
I agree with the "why bother" part....more and more lately on ATS its a why bother proposition cause no one listens much except to the sound of
their own ranting....the part I don't understand in your answer is where you agree that beheading is okay since its part of "their belief system"
so we should leave them to it?? did I get that right or am I misunderstanding you?...If I am misunderstanding you I apologize in advance - sometimes
its hard to interpret internet responses correctly..
Yep, misunderstanding me, perhaps not the person I was replying to however. I never meant it was OK to commit this act. Personally, I find it barbaric
The part where I agree to leave them to is, is in reference to our people being there. They get sent there and are put at risk for no good reason.
They are attacked by these people, aswell as people at home, they cannot win.
I say bring our people back, leave these places to whatever they do. Nothing we do will change thousands of years of tribal customs, and they
certainly don't want us there. It simply won't happen, and trying to enforce it is like trying to keep a wild lion as a pet.
Cause its not okay under any circumstances - if that's me imposing my morality on someone else - too damn bad -I vote to impose - there's a
right and wrong in this world and this kind of violence is wrong whether its ''uncle bob" who did it during the war or some a-hole taliban half way
across the world - its wrong...
Believe me, I've seen pretty much every video like this there is, and it's been going on for a long time. They don't have any intention of stopping
it as a practice whether it's against a kuffr or one of their own.
It's the sort of thing that gives me nightmares. Knowing that this sort of barbarism can be so easily inflicted by people who smile at you one
moment, and decapitate you the next.
