THE Taliban can be admired for conviction to their faith and sense of loyalty to one another, the new bishop of Britain's armed forces said.
The Church of England's Right Reverend Stephen Venner said it would be harder to reach a peaceful solution to the war in Afghanistan if the Taliban insurgents were all portrayed as "pure evil".
The bishop said that some of their methods of combat were not honourable or acceptable, but argued that it was unhelpful to demonise them.

Yes, the Taliban is not all that bad, they are simply misunderstood individuals who were abused & neglected as children, and therefore we should counsel them & provide them with medications and "hope".
