    Taliban gunmen shoot 14-year-old girl activist
    Oct 9,`12 -- Fourteen-year-old Malala Yousufzai was admired across a battle-scarred region of Pakistan for exposing the Taliban's atrocities and advocating for girls' education in the face of religious extremists. On Tuesday, the Taliban nearly killed her to quiet her message.

    I can't think of a time when negotiating with terrorists turned out well.

    Apologizing for 4 years hasn't impressed them either, but that has become a cornerstone to Obama's foreign policy.

    They are very well aware at this point that they can get away with killing innocents and still be able to make demands and have them met. Their treatment of women is horrifying. The only thing that is clear is that there is no compromising with them. They want us dead, we don't. The compromise would be killing half of us, maybe? You just don't make deals with this assholes and trust them to keep up their end of the bargain.

    Taliban a bigger problem in Pakistan than American drones...
    :mad:
    Pakistan's plague is the Taliban, not US drones
    October 10, 2012, I'm not sure if there's a Pakistani version of Pogo, but there should be, because after what happened there this week, his famous line -- "We have met the enemy, and he is us" -- certainly seems to apply.

    Ok. When you can't defeat the enemy militarily, what do you do?

    ps: We can't now defeat them militarily because that was never the objective from day 1 of George Bush's strategy.

    The only way wars ever end is by "negotiating with the enemy".
