    Survey: 70% of Afghans victims of war crimes

    According to this article in the Washington Post, a survey has discovered that about 70% of Afghans questioned said they had been victims of crimes against humanity:

    The Afghanistan Independent Human Rights Commission, an internationally mandated body, found that 500 of 2,000 people interviewed in focus groups said they had relatives who had been killed and 400 said that they or a relative had been tortured. The group's chairwoman, Sima Simar, and the U.N. High Commissioner for Human Rights, Louise Arbour, presented the report to Afghan President Hamid Karzai and called for greater accountability.

    knowing what i know about your feelings on Iraq, i imagine you would want these people under the Taliban's boot as well.

    I haven't had any meetings with the taliban. Neither have I endorsed a new Afghan constitution which merely replaces one theocracy with another one.

    yep...as i suspected, you prefer to have the Taliban there today because what we have done doesn't meet all your criteria of success. you are a hypocrit if you say you support human rights because what you really support is bad mouthing anyone that does something about human rights!

    You need to actually read something about the new Afghan constitution instead of merely spouting the same tired rhetoric.

    Our sagaciously challenged poster obviously hasn't been following the news. The U.S. government, or rather their puppet in Kabul, has been negotiating with the Taliban resently: http://shout.lbo-talk.org/lbo/RadioArchive/2004/Ali1004.mp3
