  1. A pity we can’t build a wall around the place and let them do whatever they please within its confines. If they would actually stay there I could care less what these Koranic lunatics do-problem is, they have to spread out all over the world, taking their madness with them.

  2. If the deputy general of the border guards has been in cahoots with the Taliban for some time then I wonder how much intel he has been giving them. I hope no Coalitian troops have died as a result of this.
    He’s just made himself a big target.
