The map is not the territory. You can't have a war against a religion. George Bush isn't a fucking crusader. He doesn't have enough spine for that. This is a war against fundamentalists of the islamic type. A group of Islamic fundamentalists took control of Afghanistan after we helped them (Yup, the US trained bin Laden and his buddies, dumb fucking idea) defeat the Soviets. I still haven't seen proof that it was Bin Laden but the Taliban have to go. It's the equivalent of a nation-state run by the people who bomb abortion clinics to "save lives". Sure, the normal Afghan is a good person and doesn't deserve to get bombed for what a few fundamentalist pricks did to piss off the most powerful (and arrogant) nation on earth, but the Taliban needs to be removed for the safety of the rest of the world, including the moderate Muslim states around it.
Stop the silliness.
