I had a nice idea regarding how The United States could deal with the problem of the Taliban in the FATA area, but I have decided not to post it. Any rational person can figure out what needs to be done, so there is no need to articulate it. As it is, I don’t want to add any ammunition to the bogus theory that we (of The West) are plotting the wholesale destruction of the unfortunate and powerless Eastern peoples. Although this is not what I was going to say, I am sure if someone wants to read that into my words, they would be able to.
My point: we need to be far more assertive and even destructive than we are. (Hello? Militaries exist to kill and destroy, don’tcha know.) But after decades of relative peace, we have become too pansified for our own good.
