Fuck them! Bomb until the mission is accomplished!

Would they not attack us on one of our declared holidays? I doubt it. Come to think of it, the Taliban has been issuing press releases right and left about how noncombatants are being killed by the air strikes when they themselves are harboring someone who declared that it would make no difference whether they kill US military personnel or civilians. Note to terrorists: "US says if you commit terrorist acts, you will face rage" Since they've qualified...let the rage continue...

so we've been warned, i'll make a note to get back to them as soon as we turn the afgan mountians into plains.

didn't they 'warn' us about retaliating in the first place? and didn't we conveniently ignore those warnings? you'd think they'd get a clue!

As Donald Rumsfeld said today, "Ramadan never stopped Muslim nations warring on each other, why should it stop us?" (I paraphrase)

Assoc. Press--- Rumsfeld said there was no deadline for completing U.S. military action in Afghanistan. He was asked whether it would continue into the Islamic holy month of Ramadan, which begins in mid-November. "History is replete with instances where Muslim nations have fought among themselves or with other countries during various important holy days for their religion and it has not inhibited them historically," he replied, while also stressing the urgency of stopping the terrorists before they strike again.
