A nice writeup for haters out there.
Why is it wrong to praise Imran Khan? | Blog | DAWN.COM
The Taliban are no more Wahabists than the Saudis. And it's also part of their culture. They are a backwards people, but an invasion for that reason is ridiculous. Let them operate how they have operated for the last few centuries.
The Taliban have always been against the drug trade in their country. It's the Afghan warlords who have promoted it and benefited from it.
Kids in Afghanistan don't get toys, they are presented with guns. That's how they have always operated.
It wasn't meant as a reason for invading them, but rather to point out that they weren't all sugar and spice and babies dipped in honey.
Yeah, but nobody is sugar and spice and all things nice.
Btw, will respond to some points that have been made which i disagree with in this thread later. A few different issues also getting mixed up.
Ftr, never been opposed to Imran and he would certainly bring some hope and probably be better than the rest who are useless, but don't think some of his proposed policies are practical or in some cases ideal for the region as a whole. West or no West doesn't matter in many of them.
the thing is that current policies have been making the situation from bad to worse for the last 10 years.....so why not change??
we are all waiting for the venom to start pouring
