    Another point of view

    Well, here's a link I got from Zeldman. It shows another point view, this one from an Afghan guy who's been living for 35 years in USA.

    He explains who are the Taliban, who is Bin Laden, and why USA shouldn't start a war in Afghanistan.

    Just thought you may want to check it out.

    Here are some interesting parts:

    "I agree that something must be done about those
    monsters. But the Taliban and Ben Laden are not Afghanistan. They're not even
    the government of Afghanistan. The Taliban are a cult of ignorant psychotics who took over Afghanistan in 1997. Bin Laden is a
    political criminal with a plan. When you think Taliban, think Nazis. When
    you think Bin Laden, think Hitler. And when you think 'the people of Afghanistan' think 'the Jews in the concentration camps.' It's not
    only that the Afghan people had nothing to do with this atrocity.
    They were the first victims of the perpetrators. They would exult if someone would come in there, take out the Taliban and clear out the rats
    nest of international thugs holed up in their country."

    "We come now to the question of bombing Afghanistan back to the
    Stone Age. Trouble is, that's been done. The Soviets took care of it already. Make the Afghans suffer? They're already suffering. Level their
    houses? Done. Turn their schools into piles of rubble? Done. Eradicate
    their hospitals? Done. Destroy their infrastructure? Cut them off from
    medicine and health care? Too late. Someone already did all that."
