Taliban

Why are all terrorists drug dealers? And doesn’t that violate Islam and make them apostates?

Fake ass Muslim/drug dealing asshole

If selling coke isn’t haraam, what is?

For seven years we’ve been losing (or at least stalemated) in the Global War on Terror. In Afghanistan, the Taliban are stronger than ever. Iran de facto rules Iraq. Now comes word that Iran-backed Hezzbollah is tied to a Colombian drug ring. Funny, yes, but this is a potential PR coup. It’s long been known that Hamas makes the majority of the E consumed by Israeli kids trying to forget their military service. Likewise, the Taliban have been profiting (billions) off heroin. Hezzbollah’s been sketching around South America for awhile, mostly in Ciuadad Del Este, the tri-border region of Brazil, Paraguay, and Argentina. But this is the first ties I’ve seen to Colombian coke ring:

Culminating a two-year investigation, authorities arrested at least 36 suspects in recent days, including an accused Lebanese kingpin in Bogota, the Colombian capital. Chekry Harb, who used the alias “Taliban,” acted as the hub of an unusual and alarming alliance between South American cocaine traffickers and Middle Eastern militants, Colombian investigators allege.

It’s time to start calling out the Taliban and Hezzbollah as non-Muslim drug dealing assholes…

Milan Fashion Week still better than war

More fighting between US and Pakistan:

Two American OH-58 reconnaissance helicopters, known as Kiowas, were on a routine afternoon patrol in the eastern province of Khost when they received small-arms fire from a Pakistani border post


Milan Fashion Week…better than war...

All this awesome stuff with the economy, combined with the US elections, has allowed the world to ignore that the US slipped into war with Pakistan. Since about mid-July, US policy has changed to allow American special forces troops to stage cross-border raids on Pakistani soil. Prior to Bush’s apporval of said policy, the US did occasionally drop bombs on Pakistan, but only on “high value targets.” Now the US is fighting not just the Pakistani Taliban but also Pakistani Army. BBC:

Pakistan troops ‘repel US raid’
Tensions show no sign of abating in the border area Pakistani troops have fired warning shots at two US helicopters forcing them back into Afghanistan, local Pakistani
intelligence officials say. The helicopters flew into the tribal North Waziristan region from Afghanistan’s Khost province at around midnight, the reports say.

Tensions have risen after an increase in US attacks targeting militants.

The incident comes amid mounting security fears after a militant bomb attack on the Islamabad Marriott hotel. Pakistan’s army has said it will defend the country’s sovereignty and reserves the right to retaliate to any border violations.

In one of the biggest terrorist attacks in Pakistan’s history, over 60 were killed today in a massive bombing at the Islamabad Marriott. I spent a lot of time at this hotel in 2006. It was the only major Western hotel in town, and they even had a sushi restaurant. Once I saw Ben Kinglsey in the lobby; he’d been in Kashmir, unleashing his inner-Ghandi after an earthquake killed 70,000. The whole place was crawling with international sketch balls—warlords and defense contractors, spies and Chinese hookers, Citi bankers and Saudi sheiks. Oh, and you could buy hash from the concierge.
