    This happened on November 2nd. We were apparently too consumed with our election to notice.

    Well, all but one:
    All the media reports at the time were saying 19 casualties, but now it's 32. It's 35 dead counting the gunmen:
    Interesting is that despite ISIL claiming responsibility most Afghan government officials believe it was the Taliban despite the deal they signed with Trump's administration in February. The Taliban spokesman insisted they were not complicit.

    The Taliban is already becoming the new PLO. They'll insist they're a legitimate political organization, insist they want peace, insist whoever they politically oppose are the real barbarians preventing & sabotaging that peace...yet apathetically look on as terrorist attack after terrorist attack unfolds against that same group they vilify. So predictable.

    In searching to see if another had already made this thread I rediscovered this 2016 discussion:
    80+ dead, 230+ injured in Kabul

    Today, the Afghan government killed an al-Qaeda member and they said the Taliban was harboring him. I guess they’re not super serious with their negotiations.

    It's a sad state of affairs. It's difficult not to crumble, and to not give up out of pure exhaustion. The afghan people have suffered so much. What can realistically be done? Alliances, treaties, strong arming?

    there should be a meme about the Taliban.

    "Taliban, wants to be perceived by international community as legitimate, governing body....

    Kills 80 people for the crime of wanting to be educated.."

    So its Muslims killing other Muslims.


    So I guess it makes sense what Macron is saying by excluding funding of Mosques from hostile sources like Saudi Mosques who fund radical style Islam.


    People like Sadam and Erdogie bad Dogie are quick to point that Macron is being a hardline anti Maslim.

    But Its not Mackron turning Muslims into explosives right?

    Unless they really make considerable efforts to basically completely change their way of living and thinking, there's no point being there.
    Not everyone can be like the Japanese or Germans.

    Good thing all of that money, time, lives and resources we used over there to stop the Taliban and terrorism worked.
