[size=4]6000 take suicide vow[/size=4] By Lynne O'Donnell, Termez November 17, 2001 WITH nothing to lose and nowhere to hide, thousands of foreign fighters loyal to the retreating Taliban were trapped inside the northeastern city of Kunduz yesterday, facing certain death in what is shaping up to be the worst bloodbath of the Afghan war. Opposition forces claimed to have captured senior Taliban leaders in a move that could yield valuable intelligence, as the search for terror mastermind Osama bin Laden continued and the rout of the Taliban escalated. As the holy month of Ramadan began, and US President George W. Bush sent greetings to the Muslim world, US B-52s bombers pounded the few remaining Taliban positions in northern Afghanistan, consolidating the Northern Alliance's tightening grip on the region. Kunduz, near the border with Tajikistan, was surrounded as the Northern Alliance blocked all escape routes with tanks, armoured personnel carriers and heavy artillery in preparation for a siege. Between 2000 and 6000 foreigners – Pakistanis, Arabs, Uighurs from China, Chechens and Uzbeks, recruited from the ranks of hardline Muslims to fight bin Laden's jihad, or holy war – faced slaughter as alliance leaders ordered their fighters to leave no enemy alive. Until yesterday, the alliance leaders said they were trying to convince the trapped Taliban loyalists to surrender and avoid being massacred. But as the deadline neared, it became clear Kunduz was about to be pounded into the ground as the Taliban supporters stuck to their word to "fight with the last drop of our blood". Senior officers of the alliance said they had given explicit orders to their troops to shoot every one of the foreign fundamentalists. Regional alliance commander General Mohammed Dawood Khan said: "We have to separate and distinguish between Afghan Taliban, the local Taliban and the international terrorists who are in Kunduz province. "We will invite the people to join us and give the low-ranking Taliban the opportunity to appear in a court of law. But we will have no negotiations with the high-ranking terrorists. "We will not deal with them. They are killers. They assassinated our leader, Ahmed Shah Masood." An alliance spokesman said yesterday: "We will hang (any captured Taliban) them in the stadium where they hanged our people." In the face of defeat, local fighters are deserting in droves, resorting to the well-worn Afghan tactic of choosing the winning side, or simply returning to their home villages. Kunduz is the last northern stronghold of the Taliban, defeated in the rest of the region by the alliance forces, who look set to take control of most of the country as Ramadan begins. Bin Laden remains on the run but the Pentagon vowed to step up the hunt for the man the US believes was behind the September 11 attacks on New York and Washington. The US Defence Department confirmed leaders of the Taliban and bin Laden's al-Qa'ida terror network were killed in targeted bombing on Kabul and the Taliban's spiritual base, Kandahar.

This is one government program I heartily endorse. We should encourage them to dispose of themselves, to save us the trouble, and expense. Why am I reminded of the suicide squad in Monty Python's Life of Brian? :^)

There seems to be a run on virgins up in Muslim martyr heaven right now. Those guys better hurry up or they will miss out. Hope they know by now we are there to help but damn it we can't do it all!

And like a Pacific Commander said, referring to Japanese Suicide Troops, "We should assist them in their noble effort." Or as another US leader said... The "object" of war is NOT to die for YOUR country, but to get the other guy to die for HIS.

GO for it.

Make sure that none of them escape alive, whatever it takes. These were the ones who were dancing in the streets in the week following Sept. 11. They volunteered to fight us and support bin Laden, if they get away there can be no question that they will support further attacks against the US. Kill them all.

It does really seem sad that people believe in something with such dogmatism that they get into this kind of situation over it. First they kill people in the name of their religion, then they kill themselves than rather surrender and continue to live while learning how their actions and beliefs are so wrong and against anything humane and kind. At the bare minimum, we are giving up 6,000 cheap laborers who could be used to accomplish something constructive out of forced interment.

Boy, talk about an "empty" threat!

Is there an address where we can send the Nikes and pudding? If that is too bulky, I will offer KoolAid instead.

I just noticed that whenever they (Muslims) refer to the virgins that Allah will provide. They never state if they are male or female....just virgins. Could be goats. They are rather fond of the livestock, I hear.

(Check out the snappy dressed guy on the right. I'll remember. Just like I remembered "read more books and do more bowling..") You can rest assured that the 6000 soon to be dead were celebrating all the merrier on 9-11. Well it's 11-18 today boys, and you thought you hated us before, look how nice life is now. Reap it boys, reap it.
