Mostly disappointed, disgusted or flat turned off that anyone could give the appearance of laughingly celebrating the alledged incineration of alledged innocents.
As best understood, Taleban hijacked a couple of fat petrol trucks from a NATO motorpool - chock full of fuel and took off for parts unknown 'cept to them.
Along the way - the trucks got bogged down not far from a village and in an attempt to lighten the load and get the trucks rolling again, Taleban appearantly tried to win some hearts and minds by draining off petrol to give to the villagers.
Unbeknownest to the Taleban or the village -- Bundeswehr troops watched the event through field glasses and called in an airstrike that dang killed tons of Taleban and villagers.
Think Machiavellian for a sec. Perhaps, Taleban took a short cut through innocent civilian rich turf by accident or design. Or, perhaps instead, Taleban knew exactly where they were headed with ill gotten booty and the village was a safe place to recruit, hang out, rest and re provision.
Either way is fine. The underscored lesson here is that - right or wrong -Taleban functions as missile magnets.
Thus, in order to avoid getting caught up to the perfumed gardens of paradise with intolerant, girl fearing, head chopping, finger chopping creeps and jerks - stay the heck away from the missile magnets.
And to the elderly 'not in my name', handwringer ex hippie weepers - raised on one of the Bigger than Baby Jesus cats solo tunes like "Give Peace a Chance" that ask how could anyone be so cold the answer is:
An aperitif like 911 in our tender, formative years along with a pro choice mentality, scores of slasher films that score big box office wise, a natural rebellion against moral relativism and heavy tunes like "Let the bodies hit the floor" have allied to grant a cultural devaluation of life and a kill our enemies anytime, anywhere and anyway outlook.
Besides all of that -- it's the TALEBAN.
Of all the creeps to p away empathy, sympathy, affinity and regret -- Taleban (and this goes for their homegrown 'innocent' fan base too) shouldn't even be on the list.
Didn't mean to give just a laughingly cold hearted appearance - actually meant to be about as subtle as a depleted uranium round flaming up a T 80. To 'literary' bathe in their blood, racing down the street naked screaming "Go! Great Satan! Go!"
All the barriers to fun, free choice, pro choice the anti war cats dismantled years ago actually created new American avatars, a laughing race of free boys and girls that shed no tears for enemies or their enablers.
Don't despair -- be proud.
You made us.
