Are these the moderate Taliban Obama wants us to believe in?
A Taliban firing squad killed a young couple in southwestern Afghanistan for trying to elope, shooting them with AK-47s in front of a crowd in a lawless, militant-controlled region, officials said Tuesday.
Doesn’t sound “lawless to me.” Sounds like too much law, of the wrong sort. More here, but the main point: there is no chance of “negotiation” or “appealing to the better natures” when dealing with people like this.
All we can do is win, or quit. And if we quit, we’ll just have to start again later.
Golden Lies Too Good To Ignore
April 5, 2009: The mass media were embarrassed recently when someone did the math and revealed that the hot headline “90 Percent of Illegal Guns In Mexico Come From The U.S.” turned out to be false. However, the real story was not that the actual number was 17 percent. Nor was it that the “90 percent” number came from someone (accidentally or purposely) who misread the data (90 percent of the guns identified as of U.S. manufacture were, using their serial numbers, indeed traced back to the U.S., and not some other country they had legally been exported to.) The real story was that there were so many sources of illegal weapons in Mexico, with the U.S. being one of the more difficult places to get weapons from. It’s much easier to get a load of weapons in via ship, in a container labeled as something else. Port officials in Mexico are easier to bribe, than U.S. or Mexican border guards. South America is a magnet for international gun runners, many of them now swing by Mexico regularly, to take orders and make deliveries.
Like I said.
As usual, don’t believe ANYTHING the major media says about guns in the hands of US citizens. They simply have an agenda, and it is to cancel the 2nd Amendment, one way or another. And they count on the general ignorance of the non-gun owning populace to tell their lies.
