you can read and consult as many news channels as you can, but for heavens sake do not quote them as references or authority. They represent the views of a journalist who most probably do not speak the language or understand the culture of the people he is writing about. We all know now that the so called talibans are bad the Indians and the Americans are the best….one does not need to repeat the motherhood again and again quoting news papers as a proof, because they are not. Sorry for the late response because I was out of town. Regards,

You keep harping on about bloggers posting references from the media and internet.

If you do not agree with this, kindly supply credible sources of info for us, where can we post things from.

Please do not past Al-Arabiya, PTV or Al-Jazeera, we know mostly, there is a huge biased arabic slant towards non-muslims there.

Please confirm if we should consult the coconut sitting on your shoulders for news references. We will try to be accommodating to your needs.

Some even comply and provide references from the media. I guess there are many others who are reading the commenries in silence and I propose to join them for some time.

That’s the reason why Talibs/Pashtuns are hard to defeat. There is a special kind of Pashtun bravery in running away from the battlegrounds. Don’t you know that concept of pride and honor is a propaganda by zionists? :)

Do you have to oppose someone for the heck of it?

newday001 said:
“Best I can tell, the Taliban made one big mistake. They took in Al Qaeda and then attempted to defend them. (I guess that’s two, related mistakes.”

you opposed him:
“@newday, The so called Talibans have made no mistake.”

Then you said (new entry):
“they (TALIBAN) should have handed over thir arab guests who fought with them against the soviets, to George W the leader of the West. etc. etc.”

Care to explain why you criticize him?

Do you have to oppose someone for the heck of it?

here is an example:
newday001 said:
“Best I can tell, the Taliban made one big mistake. They took in Al Qaeda and then attempted to defend them. (I guess that’s two, related mistakes.”

you oppose him:
“@newday, The so called Talibans have made no mistake.”

Then under other article you say:
“they (TALIBAN) should have handed over thir arab guests who fought with them against the soviets, to George W the leader of the West. etc. etc.”

Your posts are studded with such contradictions and you have been asked to explain which you never do. Now read carefully before replying.

The so called Talibans have made no mistake. Nor have the USA completed any mission. The USA is now there for a longer period than they were in Vietnam, the USA economy flourishes on wars, something Hitler did with the german economy, the continued peace in the world is going to choke USA current industrial structure; being the largest exporter of arms to the world.

I was not criticising any one’s english. I was simply surprise to note that my writing gave the impression that i am a racist? I thought we have no rules to follow in the internet post. spellings and grammar is immaterial as long as the message is understood. As a non american i was simply trying to give a bit of english flavour to the word ‘Blog’, it sounds too rough to me. Sorry if this caused you the concern. Incidently, we are all foreign to each other!!
