    Now Doug – quit picking on the NYT. Those people that work there are just as smart as our president and his administration and they have been telling us for years how dumb we are in fly over country. That is why you just don't understand what they are trying to tell us in that headline.

    Next they'll be telling us how cool, calm, and collected the Taliban are because they're able to keep their heads while all around are losing theirs.

    What is sad is that up until this story the writers probably believed that the Taliban had turned over a new leaf.

    "After the call, Mr. Zoi went out, and the next morning, Mr. Mohammad and another brother found Mr. Zoi’s body in his car. His hands were tied behind his back and a bloodied copy of the radio station’s magazine lay on his chest.

    “I saw Sadeem Khan with his throat slit by a knife all the way down to his spinal cord, and he was also stabbed with knives on his back, belly and chest,” Mr. Mohammad said."

    Sorry but that crossed over into Abuse of a Corpse. How LONG were they working on this poor soul? Did they have to take a break halfway thru and send their knives out for a good resharpening? Take turns..?

    "Where you be head'n partner? Never seen you 'round these parts before."

    That kind of talk can get you into all kinds of trouble with the Taliban.

    Pardon Sir, do you have the time?

    OFF w/ his head!

    Yeah, where are the CivPo when you need them!

    Time Magazine next's years– "man of the year" : The Taliban!

    For not letting the policies of George W. Bush effect their very important, and ancient culture.

    Perhaps the writers of that NYT dribble should go to Afghanistan and write flowery stories about peace, love and all the free stuff they advocate for and "engage" the Taliban in "peaceful" rhetoric and then all those Taliban will have seen the "light" and not behead people anymore – there you go – all is solved.

    I'm sure they would have Ron Paul's blessing.

    I`m concerned RP wouldn`t recognize a threat to our nation until that "threat" was at our doorstep ! If then !

  11. SignPainterGuy on February 29th, 2012 9:37 pm

    Wait a minute; I`m confused. "Changed" from what to what ? I know Bite Me said the Taliban are not our enemies, but they have long been murderers of their own people and obviously still are, so what exactly did the NYT news re-writers think the Taliban did ?

  12. Marshall_Will on February 29th, 2012 11:13 pm

    Visit sick children in the hospital, put on bake sales.., all that community organizing type stuff?

    Which, while we're AT it, virtually any of us can become debasing, dehumanizing and diabolical if provided with appropriate amounts of brainwashing or simply -chose- to indulge in violent, vile behavior.

    Some of the beheadings MM has covered over the years in the S. Philippines certainly rival if not exceed this level of misguided depravity. Then again, many of them were TRAINED by muslim extremists during the Russian occupation.

    Zilla has some excellent resources, links to vids, books, seminars by converted muslims describing what muslims are "really" taught; not all the nicey nice lies and obfuscation you get from CAIR and other groups.

    "The Perfect Man" is a book about Mo`s idea of proper male behavior. Sick does not begin to describe it ! Beheading is only the tip of the iceberg !

    The Taliban are widely misunderstood here in the West. They aren't as nice as they seem.

  15. SignPainterGuy on March 1st, 2012 1:22 am

    All those "COEXIST" bumper stickers are proof of that "misunderstanding" !

    The other day after the ONE apologized to the Afghans I called and chewed Sher'd. Brown's office lackey . I called the jihadists "barbarians" and the kid about choked at the other end of the line. The Progressives will always believe that they can talk these murdering, 7th century death cult types into being "nice" – no matter what it will ALWAYS be the Jews' fault, or the white mans' fault, or ______'s (fill in the blank) fault. NEVER will the "victimized" jihadists be acountable !

  17. SignPainterGuy on March 1st, 2012 1:37 am

    Good for you ! Next time the "kid" sees or hears something unpleasant from the middle east, maybe s/he won`t just immediately dismiss it !
