    Keep it 7th century for "The Prophet", man.

    While it's not for me, I don't see anything wrong with seeking divine purpose in ones life—just not the brutal, hateful jihad/sharia kind. That is not what humanity needs. The idea of contemptible people who brutalize like this and the similarly contemptible people who participate and screech "allahu akbar" is enough to keep one up at night.


    Taliban stops polio vaccines for 162,000 Pakistani children in protest at U.S. drone strikes

    So the above edict is not representative of the preferred allegiences of especially fanatical devotees of an especially inflexible politico-religious ideology, but the socio-political program of a hostile, gun-touting movement that seeks dominion over the entire globe deeming itself to have been sanctioned by Allah.

    More delicate Islamo-diplomacy from the calculating zealots who the B. Hussein administration thinks we should negotiate with.

    More than a decade of U.S. aid with nothing to show for it. If this does not sour us on the idea of nation building then nothing will.

    Who gives a fuck. We got Bin Laden, now call the troops home and let them catch polio if that's what they want to do to their children. Less of the Taliban, the better IMHO. Lets see em fight if they can't walk.

    I have yet to check the truth of the story but posters should be aware the British daily mail is prone to the odd lie.

    They are protecting their interest.
    They need them for future suicide bombers, soldiers and informants.

    If you don't get your future suicide bombers, soldiers and informants vaccinated they could croke before you even get to use them on the field.

    Would it be a good idea for the US to stop illegally invading a sovereign country's airspace to kill suspects. not convicts?
