Wow - it's a good thing we went after Saddam!

Okay - that heading is a bit too flippant an intro for the following:
Official: 30 killed in Taliban bus attack in Afghanistan
CNN, 19 Oct 2008
KANDAHAR, Afghanistan (AP) -- Afghan officials say Taliban militants have killed about 30 Afghans after stopping a bus on a highway and taking the passengers hostage.

Gen. Mohammad Zahir Azimi says 31 people were killed in the attack in the Maiwand district of Kandahar province, a dangerous region just west of Kandahar city.

Azimi says six of the dead were beheaded.
Pretty gruesome.

Folks, we're now losing two wars - one of which is actually directly related to the 9/11 attacks.
Osama bin Laden is still a free man.
Mullah Omar is still a free man.
The Taliban are sufficiently resurgent to operate openly and brazenly within Afghanistan - stopping a bus to execute the passengers.

Stop the madness!!!
