    Look, war is Hell. Pakistan and her people must make a stand against the taliban. Take religion out of the picture and look at the actions of the taliban as a group. They believe women have zero rights. Women are less than dogs they are equal to dirt. They the men who are taliban think that if they want sex it is their right to go and have it with any woman unless she is the property of another taliban mind set man. Then I expect the one guy would ask the "owner of the property" if he could please himself with that mans property. GET REAL people this is sick really sick. It has nothing to do with religion except sick minded people who are filled with hate use it justify their actions. Proof of just how sick minded this is is remember when a taliban fighter is killed he get 90 some odd virgins as his reward. This from a mind that while on earth hates women. His reward in the after life is more of what he hates in this life. Think about that mind set.

    Now as to our roll in this matter. Make no mistake the taliban belief system includes killing America for we stand for freedom of all people.

    Like it or not Pakistan has nukes so I support our troops moving in and taking out the taliban. This time we had better demand respect. If we go in and kill these guys don't say to the world we are sorry we did this and lets treat all as equals. This is the mistake we made in Iraq. If a person comes up to an innocent person or situation American or not an kills innocent people tract the source down and kill it. Had we taken this step in Iraq history would be different right now. Hell I say you would have avoided the Pakistan present situation if you had held the line on hateful actions in the early days after the invasion of Iraq.

    I agree with Gingrich when he said: "I think that the House has an absolute obligation to open an inquiry, and I hope there will be a resolution to investigate her. " However, I'd add the names of Bush, Cheney, and Rove.
