I have a simple question --
If the U.S. is paying the Taliban [or whatever is the current pc term for terrorists today], and funding all of their operations, who are the people that are actually getting killed?
In other words, are the numbers of dead Taliban members made up?
Are they not actually Taliban?
It seems that when they are Afghan citizens, the Afghans are quick to point that out.
So who are all these people dying?
What do we do?
Pay them to engage in war games?
Give them weapons, count to twenty, and allow them a head start?
