Discussion: Militant Attack On American University In Kabul Leaves 12 Dead

Attacking places of learning, lovely.

So, I hear the Dark Ages are making a comeback…

The Taliban have been fighting to overthrow the Kabul government for 15
years, and regard foreign civilians as legitimate targets.

I know about rounding, but the current government in Kabul isn’t 15 years old yet. And before that, the Taliban were the government in Afghanistan, insofar as there was one.

This attack is horrible, and it’s also entirely of a piece with the country’s history for the past 30-plus years.

Well it was labeled American and it tends to be the highly “educated” people that send less “educated” people to war in other countries.
