Our Enemy

Jack Layton tells us he wants to negotiate with the Taleban. I hope he's planning to bring his own interpreters:
Armed men arrived at the school in the Sayed Karam district of Paktia province and grabbed a 16-year-old student and dragged him outside.

“Taliban militants took the boy out and killed him outside the school just because he was teaching English to his classmates,” said General Esmatullah Alizai, the police chief of Paktia province.
Being a little evil myself, I find it amusing to imagine an interpreter who could make Jack make sense to the Taleban.

God bless the soldiers giving their lives fighting this evil.

Wretchard at Belmont Club has an interesting post on the history of Western liberals' engagement with Sharia fundamentalists. Is Jack Layton the Gladstone of our times? OK... I'll stop now; I just want to let any readers know that this lull at Covenant Zone is hopefully temporary. We're just having a little time out to rethink and refocus. More soon.
