What a surprise - pissing on the Taliban just pisses them off


“Our leaders overlooked this degrading and inhumane act of American soldiers because they are interested in peace talks,” said Mullah Mohammad Gul, a local Taliban commander in southern Helmand province, where the video is believed to have been made. ”Our duty is to defend our sacred religion and our people and we will keep fighting, no matter what.”

So, by "fighting," I suppose he means killing American soldiers who would never do such a thing.  Like I said, the pornographic desecration video was intended to fan the flames of Islamic/Islamist rage.  I should have added that it also provides a pretext for terrorist-controllers such as the one quoted above to continue their own amoral behavior, as part of this "war" which largely consists of terrorists ("Islamist" and American) ostensibly fighting each other, but always somehow missing their supposed targets and killing innocents, or relative innocents such as American soldiers who had nothing to do with the obscene video or the various atrocities.

I don't know if there is any solution, but I know there can be no solution as long as the real enemy isn't recognized and attacked.
