Taliban Spokesman Blames American Women

INSERT DESCRIPTION
B.K.Bangash/Associated PressTaliban spokesman Haji Muslim Khan in Swat, Pakistan last week.
NYT Blog  Update:  Britain’s Channel 4 News aired a video report on Thursday night showing Taliban forces on the streets of the strategically important Pakistani town of Buner, just 70 miles from the country’s capital, Islamabad. As Carlotta Gall and Eric Schmidt explain in The Times, a near total lack of resistance from Pakistan’s military has allowed just “400 to 500 insurgents,” to seize control of the area.
“Pakistan is the world’s only Muslim country which has a nuclear bomb, an Islamic nuclear bomb.”    More>>

The Channel 4 News report also features footage of a large Taliban rally earlier this week in the neighboring Swat Valley, where the government ceded control to the Taliban in a peace deal, and an interview with a spokesman for the Taliban in Swat.

On Wednesday, U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said that “the Pakistani government is basically abdicating to the Taliban,” but the spokesman, Haji Muslim Khan, said that Taliban anger was partly caused by the presence of female American soldiers in the region. Mr. Khan said that Pakistan’s Prime Minister, Yousaf Raza Gilani, “should think about Western white women who take up arms and come from 20,000 miles away to fight against us here.”

Given that the circumference of the planet is only about 25,000 miles, it is not clear what route Mr. Khan believes Western forces are taking to get to Pakistan.

  1. Watch out you big furry faced poof, there are plenty more females that could come over and give you a real whupping.

  2. So they are scared of white western women..that has to be good news.
    Basically , they are all bullies…what bullies need is somone to stand up to them.

  3. They are scared of women – because women can outperform these morons in prettty much most things – thereby helping to expose the excuse they use as a religion as a lie. The presence of women in our armed forced over there also gives hope to the women who are oppressed under the yoke of muslim bondage. Simply bad PR for the islamists. If any of our folks over there read this . stay alert – stay sharp – and come home safely – AND THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR YOUR WORK!!
