      Dan...Thank you. I think we must talk with God rather than talking with people who has different views which we never can agree. So the lord will direct us and let us find truth and peace !!

      You may be right Dindy, but I have peace in Christ my Lord and Savior and I will never stop defending His name. There will be a time that I have asked my Lord to fight the anti-Christ when they become the single power ruling the world and I believe many in power in America will be left behind and we will make these people understand the way of the Lord! They will cry for mercy and ask for forgiveness and will be given it then they will have a change of heart and begin to treat others the way they were treated, with mercy and forgiveness!

        DAN YOU ARE THE SAME FOR WHAT YOU CONDEMN ALQAIDA OR TALIBAN. HOPE HAS A REAL HUMAN HEART AND HE UNDERSTAND HUMAN FEELINGS. IS THIS NOT A HYPOCRITICAL ON YOUR PART THAT YOU SUPPORT US SPONSORED STATE TERRORISM AND CONDEMN THOSE FEW INDIVIDUALS RESISTING THIS STATE TERRORISM. DAN CURSING OTHERS AS TERRORIST IS SOMETHING COWARD. BE BRAVE AND TALK WITH LOGIC AND REASON.

        Bangash it seems to me that you are caught in between the fighting, but actually if you want a peaceful Afghan state you should join up with the ANA or the ANP if you feel so strongly about terrorists ruining your country because we are there to help the Afghan people so that they do not have to be afraid of a ruling party that terrorizes it's people and kills them in public squares and arenas to terrorize the population and young men and boys to join in their terror for power over the people! That is all they care about and that is what their fighting for! You can say it is religion, but anyone with religious morals would not kill their fellow brothers let alone put on a suicide vest and kill innocent people!

      Thank you Yacobi for awarding me with 360 degrees of truth. I would even accept to be wrong if only the war stopped.
      I cannot post anymore on the CNN main pages becouse I was blocked.

      How could killing oneself be self defense? That is just plain dumb or retarded! ESPECIALLY WHEN YOU KILL INNOCENT PEOPLE IN THE PROCESS!

      Salerno now that you are part of the 360 cult and overwhelmed you should brush up on your defensive skills because when you are judged by God you will be considered to be the same kind of lunatic killers they are!

      We and NATO forces are not baby killers as your so called self defense suicide bombers are! We may have mistakenly killed a family with a baby most likely because either Taliban or terrorists were using them as human shields, but in no way do we purposely kill innocent people as your 360 cult does!

      Well I take that back there are some rouge troops on drugs that have, but also have or will be prosecuted by the law of a military court and could possibly receive the death penalty. With your cases of murder they are rewarded and believe that your god will also reward them! What kind of god do you worship that would reward someone who killed innocent life?

      Dan – It is self-defense becouse that people is under American attack, so the responsibility of innocent people deaths is aal on the US as they are the invaders, while the suicide bombers are the defender, even if they personally die in the process. They are not killing for money like the US soldiers. The first suicide fighter was the jews Nazirite Samnson.

    Bangash.... you may try to say something good. On the other hand ..the people who are wounded only know the pain of the wound. Especially the wounds in Hearts . I my self had narrow escapes from five explosions in my country . So we have a wish together that it must end and people will able to live in peace. These attackers from Bin"s group must lay down arms and come try to do something better for man kind. Many LTTE surrendered once the leader died. Now they help building our country and many studies too and some do better jobs and some got married also. Blasting people is not good for anyone .

      So is the United States in the right when they retaliated against the Embassy attacks in Africa, the USS Cole attack off Yemen and the 9/11 attacks all of which al Qaeda took responsibility and the Taliban would not give up their leaders?

      DINDY I am not scoring points by saying what you call some good things. You have survived few explosions while I, my home, my village and my towns are for the last three decades are a war front in US wars in this region. I and all my natives badly hate wars as we have suffered a lot but it is indeed strange DINDY when see you all putting whole blames on Taliban for what is going on in this region while completely ignore US three decades long military engagements in this region and killing of millions just for their global strategic designs. Has the UN or any committee of nations have given Americans a licence to kill any one any where? DINDY we all as a human beings must condemn killers of innocent human beings any where as among the killers there is no good or bad. So we must have the courage to call spade a spade.

    Since the fall of the Soviet Union Russia has not been an enemy, in fact we have cooperated in many ways with one another!

      DAN remember Afghanistan is not what you all had expected and believed before invasion and this last ten years have proved. General Patreaous, just days back confessed that this year may prove more devastating and deadly. Why all this killing and for what, just to subdue and make it part of a global Empire. But at what cost? DAN Taliban or any Afghan are not your enemies but your behaviors, intentions and way of dealing have pushed them to the corner and they have no options. No doubt DAN you have a lot of dollars and huge weapons to prolong this bloody game but will never win. So the best way DAN for you, me and all true human beings is to stop this senseless war and three decades long killings in this region which has now posed threat to every one in this universe. In THIS DEATH GAME, only Osama and Obama may benefit but rest all in this universe will be losers. It is indeed a matter of shame for all of us that just few war mongers are going to destroy our this beautiful planet and we like cowards, taking shelters of religions, nationalism and regionalism, ignoring the fact that we are human beings nothing else.

        Then why does the Taliban and it's terrorist allies continue to fight? Why don't they just lay down their arms and join in on the peace process? I will tell you why, it is because they love so much what bin laden had done to the US and wish to defend him, but we will in the end bring justice for the 3000 men, women and children who lost their lives on 9/11 and the fall of the World Trade Center! If you think Islamic terror will win then go to North Waziristan where there will be fire raining upon your heads!

    WHAT A TURN IN THE HISTORY IN THIS REGION. YESTERDAY SAME TALIBAN IN THE NAME OF MUJAHID WERE ALLIES WITH USA AND WERE BLEEDING RUSSIANS ON AFGHAN SOIL AND WERE EXPELLED AFTER A HUMILIATING DEFEAT. TODAY AMERICANS ARE BLEEDING AT AFGHAN SOIL AT THE HANDS OF FORMER ALLIES AND SAME AMERICANS NOW SEEK RUSSIAN ASSISTANCE TO CONFRONT THEIR OWN CREATED MONSTER. HOW HISTORY HAS REPEATED ITSELF IN JUST TWO DECADES. THERE IS A LOT TO LEARN FROM THE PAST BUT AMERICANS PROBABLY HAVE NO MIND TO ASSES FOR THIS ADVENTURE. RUSSIAN WILL SURELY ENJOY WHEN SEE THEIR ONCE COMMON ENEMIES AT WAR AGAINST EACH OTHER.

      Now with the Russians help to confront these insane murderous Islamic extremists we have a supply route from the north! We no longer need to use Pakistan to resupply NATO forces! It just goes to show how much these religious fanatics are hated around the world! Their destiny is eternal DEATH!

    Now if only the Russians could somehow get the Karzai regime and the Taliban to negotiate a peaceful settlement,what a wonderful developpement that would be!!! But I guess that the right-wing thugs in Washington wouldn't like it very much!
