So, yes, Pudge is correct about his views on the bombings. I am sure more of our British friends would be more understanding if terrorists had crashed planes into Buckinham Palace instead.
We cannot, and will not, stand for this type of shit. Suicide bombers blowing up 5 or 10 people in a market are bad, yes, but that typically wouldn't require a massive military response.
However, suicide bombers killing 6,000+ people and destroying several huge buildings - plus the new threat of bio-terrorism, well, um, something HAS to be done. No, negotiating with psychos is not going to help. Removing any power and means that these people have is the only option.
My hope and prayer is that the government that replaces the Taliban is a decent, just, government. I am not so sure of this from what I have read about the Northern Alliance though.
Anyway, to our troops: Good luck, Godspeed, and hit the frik'n targets!
