Actually, I take back that bit about British Muslims. The 7/7 bombers were almost universally disowned by them. The mass of British Muslims condemned the 7/7 killers like the rest of the people on the Earth. I just assumed that the guy from Leeds UK (who seems too dishonest even to keep the same moniker) would think of the 7/7 racists as some sort of heros.

You support American GIs flogging Afghani farmers, cutting off their hands and heads then? I mean I do, I couldn't care less. I think they should open the soccer stadium for Saturday afternoon hangings. Maybe they can allow women to be buried up to their waist and stoned too. Lots of muslim type entertainment.

cultivation of poppies

AND IF THE UNITED STATES TROOPS IN AFGHANISTAN DO THEIR CIVIC DUTY AND ERADICATED THE DRUG POPPIES THAT'S GROUNDS FOR DISCIPLINARY ACTION OR DISMISSAL FROM THE MILITARY.

Tell me why this nation of strict Islamic thought has opium production.

But the poppy production was only permitted because the Taliban violence had destroyed the economy and there was not other way for people to make any money. A lot of innocent farmers were being harmed by attempts by ISAF to end poppy production. Thank the Taliban.

The problem is mainly education. The Taliban are drawn from people who, even if they learn to read and write, only get a Mardrassa and Islamic "education". That is why these nutters are running around rioting and fighting over the burning of some Qurans. They aren't sitting in a comfortable home after a modern education like we are.(What's your excuse and the excuse of the guy from LeedsUK?)

They are not educated to the level of a racist or a US/UK primary school child. They only know how to repeat "US is Great Satan & God is Great". That is the start and end of their 'education'. Look at the ignorance of some Westerners. What chance do those folk stand? I'm not exactly excusing their behaviour, but understanding it is the first step to resolving it.

Many of the Taliban who are attacking ISAF, the ANA and Afghan police are from Pakistan. Again, the problem in much of Pakistan is lack of a proper education and we see that in itself is not the only problem. There is a cultural one too. Look at the attitude of some educated people on Topix. And consider the government ministers in Africa who have degrees and believe in witchcraft. Mugabe has two degrees, I believe. Education doesn't overcome all indoctrination, especially amongst people prone to be superstitious. Cultures like that of the Taliban are over 100 years behind Western cultures, but it's not politically correct to say how ignorant and backward they are. It is how to spread education of enough quality and extent to modernise the country that is the problem.

People need food, power, security and jobs as well as schools. It all needs to be done at once. IF security can be achieved and maintained when the West withdraws, we can help them build the other aspects of a modern society from outside the country.

We had better hope the Pakistanis can maintain their own stability. Half their country is madrassa educated. The boys that is. Sometimes the girls seem to miss out altogether. Empowering women is part of modern society and Pakistan is even having trouble with that in parts of that country of 187 millions.

Note: Taliban is a catch-all term and there are 'taliban' who support the Afghan Govt of course.

Want to know where America's money is? Follow the blood trail.

It came out of our pockets, to the Defense Department that then hired numerous private contract companies to go to Iraq and overcharge for services that soldiers and Iraqi civilians could easily have done.

These companies made a huge fortune during the Iraq war and many are still there rebuilding roads, bridges and mosques. Those lucky enough to have invested in them also made a huge fortune. Think about it. Who do think would have been most likely to invest in these companies during wartime? Possibly the same people who started the war in the first place?

I don't think that we should be burning the quoran there, unless of course I happen to see an American flag being burned by one of them. When I see that, then I will do what I want to with their heathen book. Leave my flag alone, and I will leave the Quoran alone.

What many of you tunnel visioned typical, NON military serving republiklans are to stupid to grasp is that when USA military burns the Quran in Afghanistan , we put our troops in greater peril from civilians.

Not that you Rush Limbaugh fans could care less.

We are in THEIR Islamic country . Afghanistan is not part of USA .

It is unreal and strange as hell that this was done because even a newbie in country knows not to do this.

Everything in this post is true! However, Warmongering continues to make big profits. Stuff the dead and maimed on all sides, they don't count. Corporate greed is in control! For now!!!

The PROBLEM is their screw-ball religion; which will prevent Afghanistan from every becoming a civilized country and as you said about Pakistan, "Sometimes the girls seem to miss out altogether". Once again, their religion. In fact, the number one reason that women in Pakistan are in prison is that they are RAPE VICTIMS; but the male rapist claims the women wanted it so they, the women, are guilty.

And look how Muslims have DEGRADED culture in the UK. They bring misery, pverty and bigotry whereever they show up.

RIGHT! We should NOT BE in their country. But we aren't even "mewbies".

When the US was in Afghanistan, in the 80's, assisting the Afghan people in their war against Soviet Imperialism, the military goals were defined and our support was peripheral----SUCCESS!
----------

The downward turning point in the United States military history BEGAN with the election of the GLOBALIST Presidents, starting with Bush Sr., whose goal was not a strong America, but rather a "New World Order".

Like the burning of the Koran; when George Bush Sr. sent troops to protect the GLOBALISTS strongest mid-East ally, Saudi Arabia, Muslims were OUTRAGED that we had troops in their Holy Land.

Osama bin Laden, from Afghan fame, had offered his considerable services to the Saudi king but was turned down BECAUSE of Bush Srs. lead in this war. Had Bush Sr. been a pro-American President, instead of a GLOBALIST President, he could have employed the same stategies that Carter/Reagan did in Afghanistan and Reagan did in the Iraq/Iran War. That is, as a pro-active, peripheral player.

If that had been the case, Osama bin Laden would have been at war with Sadamm Hussein and neither the 1993 attempt on the WTC or the subsequent 9-11 attacks would have happened. Ergo, no TROOPS in Afghanistan.

Certainly some profit in war. But to indict the DoD and all contractors as excessive profiteers is too broad a brush. Can you point out the NYSE code for a couple of such contractors whose stock has appreciated dramatically due to their doing contract work in Afghanistan? I personally am opposed to nation building projects, but when contractors can do work that makes soldiers available to do their soldiering rather than administrative tasks, good.
