Any Taliban Groupies About?

with 3 comments

Supporters or sympathisers of the Taliban’s campaign in Afghanistan must be very proud of their “anti-imperialist” heroes.

For the latest daring escapade of the Taliban, the Guardian reports:

“The Christian aid workers including 18 women were abducted from a public bus travelling from Kandahar to Kabul on one of Afghanistan’s most dangerous routes. They included nurses and English teachers in their 20s and 30s. They apparently tried to disguise themselves by wearing all-covering burkas.”

Still after the numerous Taliban attacks on schools and murder of teachers and school students, it won’t find it too hard to kill some foreign nurses.

The Feminist Majority Foundation have produced a timely reminder of the Taliban’s treatment of women.
