"When the choice is between barbarians and civilized people, support the civilized." Something like that.
That holds with dealing with the Taliban, too.
Suspected Taliban militants executed a seven-year-old boy in southern Afghanistan after accusing him of spying for the government, a provincial official said Wednesday.
The child was captured by the militants in Sangin district of southern province of Helmand Tuesday, Daoud Ahmadi, a spokesman for the provincial governor, said.
A seven-year-old. A 'spy'.
Hellfire, in more ways than one, is what these people deserve.
