Six Americans, two Afghans, a Briton and a German were shot and killed by gunmen in Badakhshan, a remote northeastern region of the country, said Dirk Frans, the director of the International Assistance Mission. Two other Afghans on the team were alive, Frans said.
Afghanistan’s ruling Taleban have blown up two giant Buddha statues in defiance of international efforts to save them, according to independent reports.
If you question why New Zealand has troops in Afghanistan (not far from the remians of those statues by the way) you must first defend these actions before you get to ask you questions. And I particularly challenge our exceedingly weak and inept media to ASK them why if those people – who suddenly take a day off spitting on our soldiers to “care” about them – why they defend such acks of barabarism. Start with the communist Keith Locke and the professional violent “protester” John Minto since you run to them for comment first but give them a free pass when you do.
So go ahead, defend them.
Hunting the fuckers down and blowing them away seems like a better option to me, but there you go.
