In the last Century The British gave up on the Afghanistan problem as unsolvable.
Then we had the Russians from 1979 in on the act but after a decade pulling out after failing to solve the riddle of why Afghanistanis are so thick in the head to continue their archaic beliefs and dyed in the wool intolerably - dogmatic and non progressive lifestyles.
The Taliban, another ancient religious bunch of loonies specialising in self opinionated uneducated males acquiring the major benefits of living using the entrenched laws of this lavatorial branch of the Faith Industry
whose slogan does not relate to Faith, Hope and Charity but Fear Greed and Cruelty
I am certain most level headed people in our world would agree that a 'Seven year old boy is simply a Seven year old Boy and nothing else.and not a spy and be hanged. The U/S backed Afghan president Hamid Karzai Condemmed the act. ...Vest.Daily Gaggle.
.Taliban executes seven-year-old 'spy' TALIBAN militants in Afghanistan executed a seven-year-old boy on suspicion of spying for the US-allied government, according to local reports today.
The execution, which has not been confirmed by the extremist organisation, was carried out in the southern Helmand province, government spokesman Daoud Ahmadi told The Times of India.
The boy’s relatives brought the incident to the government’s attention, the newspaper said.
Mr Ahmadi told Iranian news agency Press TV the act was “horrendous”.
It was not immediately clear what information the boy was suspected of leaking. The area is mostly controlled by militants, The Times said.
Taliban fighters in the same province shot down a NATO helicopter overnight as it tried to evacuate a British casualty. Four US soldiers were killed.
There are currently 142,000 foreign troops in Afghanistan, by the Pentagon's count, including 94,000 US troops, according to AFP.
US Defence Secretary Robert Gates said earlier this week that 17,000 to 18,000 troops ordered to Afghanistan by President Barack Obama as part of a 30,000 troop surge have arrived in the country.
