How low can the Taliban go?

And, Jack Layton wants to negotiate with them?
Taliban fighters used children as human shields to flee heavy fighting this week during an operation by foreign and Afghan forces to clear rebels from around a key hydro-electric dam, NATO said on Wednesday.

The Taliban have used human shields before, but never children, local residents say.

The fighting occurred during Operation Kryptonite on Monday, an offensive to clear insurgents from the Kajaki Dam area in southern Helmand province to allow repairs to its power plants and the installation of extra capacity.

"During this action ... Taliban extremists resorted to the use of human shields. Specifically, using local Afghan children to cover as they escaped out of the area," Colonel Tom Collins, a pokesman for the NATO-led International Security Assistance Force (ISAF), told reporters in Kabul.

That's just disgusting. No honour with the Taliban, lets send Jack Layton to negotiate, that should be educational.

Soldiers i have talked with tell me there is a unspoken rule when engaging the Taliban that the moment the shooting starts all bets are off.

You will notice that when reports come from the front,there is mention of Taliban casulaties, but very little of POWs.

Nothing about the Taliban surprises me. And of course, all this goes completely over the heads over the peaceniks.

If Taliban Jack likes them so much lets see him send Olivia over there for a couple months to negotiate.

While she's there she can do the new President of Harvard's challenge of writing down all the sexism and racism observed. This can serve as the control case to compare against what feminists observe over here.
