Just whom is invading and occupying a Country that did nothing that should be a cause to be invaded?

And just what would that "something" be?
I read between the lines in the OP and as far as I am concerned this is an anti Afghanistan thread to promote the US presence there when it was not needed nor asked for..
I truly am sorry for the tragic death of the young girl for no reason of here own doing.
But as I know you have read my last post with the link to the Chicago death rate surpassing the US forces in Afghanistan One has to wonder no?
Let me say this, If I started a thread on every murder of a child in the USA/ Canada I would die from lack of sleep and food.......And by child I mean under 10 years old...........Nobody gives a hoot about what is happening in their own back yard but they sure do care about a country half way around the world....

Oh hey look everybody, it's another Afghan beheads, shoots, stabs, burns a 14 year old girl story in the AP.
Yeah, cause there can't be too many made up propaganda stories fed to the media to
keep making excuses for continuing a war where the heroin grows and the lithium mines are.
I'm just so glad with all the soldiers we have over there that these kind of stories can get reported in the media.
Yeah. You probably don't even have to have these events actually occur on a month after month basis in Afghanistan and Pakistan for them to be reported to gullible Americans to keep the war fires burning in their souls.

Then on the flip side there are those too who refuse to acknowledge anything contrary to their belief out of fear of being proven wrong.
You are a true believer ain'tcha?
Well, it was a crap story.
They don't want us over there. Why feed bad publicity to the press?
This story is US grade A propaganda that I've seen a dozens of times already.
These stories depend on a person willing to believe based on their own prejudices that are being carefully molded and nurtured.

A portion of what you say I agree to. There are some, who have chosen to follow a strict path of a chosen religion. To paint with a broad brush though, not all religion breads what you have posted.
