So I saw a headline on CNN that said "Taliban: Stop Drone Strikes or Else" and I think to myself "or else WHAT? We'll keep dying? We will put a hex on you? So I read the article....


....and learn that they're basically insane. The "or else" is "we will stop letting kids in the areas we control get the polio vaccine. I just can't fathom how anyone can support this group of complete nutbags. You'd think that the locals, and their own foot-soldiers, would stop to rethink who they're supporting, but apparently not.

How many of them have significant nutbag elements in their own country who might rise up against them?

What happens if you have a popular uprising to toss out a dictator and then you hold free and fair elections only to elect a President who is a member of a radical Islamic sect (i.e. Egypt)?

The issue isn't "oh, there's a few nutbags over there", it's more like a not-insignificant percentage of EVERY population in the Islamic countries constitutes what we could consider to be nutbags. 90% of Egyptian women have undergone cliterectomies. That doesn't happen because you have a few whakcos interspersed among a mostly-normal population...

Muslims have a twisted notion of fun, punishment, life in general. All nutty as can be.

On the positive side, Tomatoes have been banned.......

A Salafist group called the Popular Egyptian Islamic Association has come under fire after sending out a warning on Facebook urging its followers not to eat tomatoes because the vegetable (or fruit) is a Christian food.

The group posted a photo on its page of a tomato – which appears to reveal the shape of a cross after being cut in half – along with the message: “Eating tomatoes is forbidden because they are Christian. [The tomato] praises the cross instead of Allah and says that Allah is three (a reference to the Trinity).

[God help us]. I implore you to spread this photo because there is a sister from Palestine who saw the prophet of Allah [Mohammad] in a vision and he was crying, warning his nation against eating them [tomatoes]. If you don’t spread this [message], know that it is the devil who stopped you.”

That would probably do more to turn people there against the Taliban than what we've done.
