Just heard that the Taliban is alive and well in Afghanistan having reconstituted itself from those who had been captured and subsequently freed. Yes, those that had been defeated, captured and imprisoned, freed due to varied circumstances, have simply resumed their mission of hate.
What more proof is required that these people cannot be reasoned with, that the only thing they understand is death, the only thing that will stop them.
The only question the West has to answer is : Will we be the ones to die, or will it be them?
There is no middle ground.
