IT GETS TO a point where you run out of outrage.
Anybody think this will be a subject at the Republican convention? Do you think Democrats will talk about it next week?
In the intensely dangerous Helmand region, Afghans were beheaded by the Taliban for having a music party. From NBC World News:
Afghan President Hamid Karzai accused the Taliban on Monday of beheading 17 villagers, including two women, in volatile Helmand province, in a gruesome attack recalling the dark days of the hardline group’s rule before their 2001 ouster. He ordered a full investigation into the “mass killing,” which a local official said was punishment to revelers attending a party with music and mixed-sex dancing.
We’re going to be hearing about this sort of carnage until 2024.
