" A roadside bomb in western...killed 16..."

This should read:

" And yet another roadside bomb murders 16 innocent people. Of them, most were young innocent and harmless children, ages.....How long will we allow the Taliban to kill the children of Afghanistan? What is allowing for this to happen? Is it the close ties the Taliban has with Pakistan?

Is Pakistan a friend or an enemy?

If they are an enemy what should we do about them?
Have we considered fighting them in our land of Tajikistan, our land which they claim belongs to them, just as they claim Kashmire as theirs.

We cannot depend on NATO to solve the problems that the Taliban has brought to us, to our villages, to our country, to our people, our children, our economy and on and on.

Are we united in stopping them or are there too many people in Afghanistan who agree with them and do not want them stopped.

Look at the great city of Herat. Look at their dying economy. Who has allowed for this to happen?
The finest silk in the world is produced there, far better than any the Chinese can make. For generations 7 different familes have made this silk. They are broke; their income has fallen from USDollars $350,000 to less than US Dollars $35,000. that is, when divided by the 7 families $5,000 a year gross profit. At this rate, by next year it will be a mere $1,000 and soon the families will no longer be able to produce. The end of Herati Silk. This does not need to happen. Even with all of my offers to market this and make a million Dollars within two years nothing has been done.

Even with the teaching, training, and the millions of US Dollars that the United Nations has spent in Herat and the Province things are getting worse. Even the trees have been destroyed.

One of the most historic cities in the entire world is being ruined. What wil be done to stop this?

you=usa and nato must get out of this country to stop it and it is clear. All these deaths are direct or indirect blame of your country = your politicians and your militaries. Do you think that these insurgents want to kill their own civilians? They wanted to kill probably some nato or uss-militaries. Or maybe it was device planted or placed by usa or nato.

Muslims should be allowed or even encouraged to kill one another. It is good when they are preoccupied. They do not bother decent civilized people when they are busy getting dead.

the muslims always seem to have a passion for killing themselves off all by themselves. maybe in the future the muslim population will finally kill each other off. these people get along with absolutely no one, especially each other. whatever works.

for all of you that said us or nato forces planted these bombs must be retarded bc what you dont realize is all the good the troops do over there by giving out food and helping rebuild homes and schools for the children and even giving school supplies to the schools that are already there......forget all of you military haters
