... I read this as an admission of guilt?
The attacks on the United States were to avenge US "cruelty" toward Muslim countries, the Taliban supreme leader Mullah Mohammad Omar said Tuesday in a message to the American people.

Oh I see. But the Taliban's starving of Muslims in Afghanistan is not cruelty. Neither was Hussein's use of chemical weapons against Iran. Nor was Khomeni's(sp?) practice of sending children wandering out into mine fields to detonate mines. Gee, we really are on the wrong page here.

What kills me is how these radical Muslims and their pathetic anti-American friends here in our country keep harping on theses supposed "atrocities" in Muslim countries. What exactly are these numerous "wrong and cruel policies" they talk of? How about some specifics rather than these vague generalities. Surely they can't be talking about the embargos on Iraq, which as far as I'm aware don't include food or medical supplies. We continue to dog Saddam to prevent him from projecting his power to re-attack his Muslim neighbors. We hear cries of poverty from the government of Iraq, yet Saddam continues expensive development of nuclear, chemical and biological weapons. And as the Kurds and Iranians found out, he will use them. But we're evil, huh? Maybe they're talking about our policies in the 90's, let's take a look. We were involved in 3 wars. The Gulf war saved the Kuwaiti people from Saddam. Our intervention in the Balkans helped save Bosnia. And then we helped save Kosovo from Serbia. In each of the above military actions we saved a Muslim people. Is this the cruel policies these terrorists speak of? And let's not forget Somalia, a military operation designed to feed a nation of starving Muslims. Are these the policies and actions for which we deserve to have over 5000 innocent American civilians murdered for? I for one am sick of the rhetoric being spewed by these so called Islamic leaders. Hopefully we'll soon give them something to really complain about.

These SOBs have no f*cking excuse for their actions. We give Afghanistan 1/3 of their food, and supply them with $170M in aid. Just wonder if the US flag is stamped on every single box/package delivered. Should be an aid requirement.

And now it is being reported that the Taliban has seized all of the UN foodstocks intended for women, children, the people, for it's own soldiers. Is thievery depriving the helpless supported by Islam? Resident muslims speak out!

The Taliban needs a severe ass kicking or worse. The Taliban needs to go the way of the DoDo bird. The Taliban is nothing but a group of terrorists cloaked in a transparent shell of religion....they are the scum of the earth...& they have associates who need to go with them. [heavy]

They're just attempting to deflect support for the upcoming US attacks. It's spin-control which Clinton proved does indeed work well on the American media and sheeple. The Taliban figure there are enough asshole marxist college professors and shit-for-brains NEA school teachers already pushing this agenda in the classroom that they *might* be able to cause political difficulties for Bush. Hell, we're not even fighting yet and there are already protesters gathering on various campuses. The North Vietnamese learned -- when you meet the Americans on the battlefield, you get your ass kicked. You beat them in the "court of public opinion" by undercutting thier moral certainty. This is a battle of FREEDOM (the right to life, liberty, property, and the pursuit of happiness) vs. Totalitarianism (in it's Theocratic guise). So, harden your resolve and let's kick the shit out of these bastards until they cry uncle. - CD
