“Taliban is Not U.S. Enemy, Says Biden,” In Afghanistan headlines screamed Vice President Joe Biden’s comments to Newsweek that “the Taliban per se is not our enemy.” “We are in a position where if Afghanistan ceased and desisted from being a haven for people who do damage and have as a target the United States of America and their allies, that’s good enough,” said Biden. “There is not a single statement that the president has ever made in any of our policy assertions that the Taliban is our enemy because it threatens U.S. interests.”

Folks should remember that we supported the Taliban and others during their fight to push Russia out of their country.

This excerpt is from a foreign site that printed the Taliban letter justifying shooting Malala --- When its a matter of Shariah, and someone tries to bring fitnah with his/her activities, and it involves in leading a campaign against shariah and tries to involve whole community in such campaign, and that personality become a symbol of anti shariah campaign, not just its allowed to kill such person but its Obligatory in Islam. If anyone Argues about her so young age , then the Story of Hazrat Khizar in Quran that relates that Hazrat Khizar while Traveling with Prophet Musa (AS) killed a child, arguing about the reason of his killing he said that the parents of this child are Pious and in future he will cause bad name for them. If anyone argues that she was female, then we can see the incident of killing of wife by a blind Companion of Prophet Muhammad (S.A.W.W) because she use to say insultive words for prophet. And prophet praised this act.

"notsid - Folks should remember that we supported the Taliban and others during their fight to push Russia out of their country." Oh, I see... and now that they have turned against us (and they have just in case you aren't certain) we are just supposed to ignore the fact that these terrorists will not rest until we are all under Sharia law or dead?

The US simply cannot solve every problem in the world. It is time to get out of the 'stans and the Middle East.

Sometimes when I see women wearing hijabs or burqas I wonder if they will ever rise up - like the 'bra burners' of the 60's - against these symbols of repression. This article made me realize how dangerous such protests could be for these women - to a somewhat lesser extent in this country - but especially in the Middle East. Let's all just pray for their freedom one day.
