The Taliban

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

The Taliban Corrupted with vile training, the Taliban are conditioned from youth to fight for "the cause." Supposedly they feel as strong about death as us Americans feel about life, so this leaves me wondering why we continue to try to "bring them to justice." How can we punish people who consider death a blessing, thus making them martyrs?

We are letting them now exactly how affected they have made us by their terrible acts of immorality. I feel that if we reduce the amount of irrelevant repetition on TV and radios of what all of America already knows, this will help, even if a little.

America's retaliation with showers of bombs on Afghanistan did nothing but kill thousands of innocent civilians. I do not understand how this helped the situation because from the sudden breaking news about Anthrax and supposed Smallpox, we only made it worse. Intelligence gatherings should be performed more often, to better locate the Taliban and of course Bin Laden, instead of murdering innocent people. ...read more.
