Afghan paper wants Taleban prisoners executed

Amen to that.

The Afghan government should execute Taleban prisoners, an Afghan daily said on Monday, the day after the rebels killed the translator of an Italian journalist.

As much as the world would like to believe it, the Taliban are not a resistance group or freedom fighters or insurgents. Iraqi militias are neither. You see, freedom fighters don't blow up crowded markets of civilians of their own nationality. Insurgents don't behind their own nationals. Terrorists do. There is only one thing terrorists understand and that is violence. And while it may make us cringe, you start beheading Iraqi terrorists and Taliban fighters and you'll see them start to double-think their actions.

A spokesman for the Taleban commander holding translator Ajmal Naqshbandi said he was beheaded on Sunday after the government refused to free several insurgent prisoners. Government officials later confirmed the man was killed.

See, terrorists. Need I say more?

“Martyring Ajmal Naqshbandi and their other crimes happen as the government shows extreme leniency towards the Taleban prisoners,” Arman-e-Millie daily said in an editorial.

You mean by the fact we continue to allow them to breathe? You have a good point.

“There has been no implementation of punishment for any criminal and killer Taleban who has been sentenced to heavy punishment by the judicial authorities,” it said. “From now on, criminal Taleban should be executed.”

Go for it. The world won't miss 'em.
