whats even more sad is how few people realize this is going on in a lot of the middle eastern countries; not just the one's which they hear about daily on the news. countries in revolt causing murders, rape, slaughterings: syria, lybia, lebanon (at times), iran. its horrendous really and the reason for the revolts. you can't put out a fire by smothering it with oil. that's what the governments are trying to do and so far, thankfully, it's worked in favour of the people's freedoms. sure hundreds and thousands are being injured, killed etc but their cause is finally being realized by some of the westerners who think the taliban represent the real islam. bittersweet really, similar to the revolutions (may i add extremely bloody) revolutions of europe in the 1400's-1600's.
