Okay, then let's tailor our response proportionately, and daisycutter the

The state and the religion are intertwined in the Islamic ummah, and
exercise both divine and mundane control over the folkways of the
individuals. When a nation is subsidizing the radicalization of its
citizens and permitting their emigration to wage jihad in foreign nations,
one can indeed hold that state responsible for the consequences of its

The Soviets withdrew in 1989 and we left shortly thereafter; the Taliban
movement was not even begun by Mullah Omar until September of
1994, in Kandahar, By November 1994, they were receiving assistance
from the Pakistani government, which hired them to protect convoys
traveling between Pakistan and Central Asia. Get your facts right, or
they end up biting you in the rhetorical ass.

I just did. We left a whole bunch of various and sundry warlords in
charge of different areas of Afghanistan; the taliban, who eventually,
and with Pakistan's help, defeated them and consolidated power in the
region, were not even born in the mind of their creator until long after
the US was gone.

Such human rights abuses should indeed be dealt with. I myself regard
Scientology as a dangerous and mind-controlling cult.

Last time I checked, the Scientologists weren't sheltering members of
an organizationm that flew violently commandeered aircraft into US
cosmopolitan skyscrapers, killing thousands. It's purely willful
blindness to choose the small similarities you see and ignore the
